The PSDI conference offers an excellent opportunity for commercial partners to promote their organisation and capabilities to the large and targeted community of structural biologists in industry. The exhibition lasts for the duration of the conference, i.e., from Monday, 4 November 9 am until Tuesday, 5 November 5 pm. It is located on the same floor as the conference room, next to the place where coffee breaks happen, ensuring best visibility.
A set of sponsor packages to choose from is available.  

Exhibition area

The Exhibition area consists of two rooms (room 3 of 120 m2 and room 4 of 75 m2) where coffee will be served during all conference breaks. The space per sponsor will be assigned by the PSDI organising committee. We offer a sponsor slot of roughly 2 x 2 m. Office tables and chairs will be available upon request. Please mind the specific electrical plug/outlet in Switzerland. In case of special needs for the stand, please contact directly the organising committee.
