who will attend?

The expected participants are all interpreting DNA variants on a regular basis, professionally, at clinical diagnostic and research labs, and generally speaking, people working with and interpreting DNA. Therefore any products or technologies for molecular genetics and diagnostic labs would be most appropriate to be showcased at this event.  We are especially looking for companies to host workshops showcasing their Genome informatics tools; due to limitations in the program these are extremely limited.

 

why partner with the veptc?

The VEPTC has a proven track record and provides a unique opportunity for industry partners and colleagues to connect with scientists and leaders in variant interpretation in a friendly and focussed environment.

The course provides a unique opportunity for companies to provide product training in genome informatics tools and showcase genomics products.

At the VEPTC we gather influencers and key desicion makers from molecular genetics labs interpreting variants on a daily basis. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your products to the people who use them by providing product training in the form of a workshop, a company lecture, an exhibition booth or a combination of these. We provide ample opportunity for Networking to generate leads in the breaks, poster session and the Welcome Function.    

VEPTC 2022 will be historic becuase it is the first VEPTC to take place both in-person and virtually.  Thanks to this we hope to bring together an even greater number of participants and welcome attendees from around the world. 

The organsing committee are putting together a great program. Due to time limitaitons, sponsorship opportunites are extremely limited so don't delay.
