European Cancer Congress 2013 for ESMO Members

Benefits for ESMO members during the congress

As an ESMO member, going to the annual congress is a unique experience, starting with the fact that members get discounted registration fees and free access to the congress webcasts. 

Visit the ESMO Members’ Lounge

Our exclusive "members only" area will be at your disposal for the duration of the congress. Find out more about what to expect here!

Find out more about the General Assembly

Pick up your ESMO Member Ribbon

Be recognised as an ESMO Member to be granted access to the ESMO Membership Lounge.  All members and new members signing up in Amsterdam will be given an ESMO Member Ribbon identifying them as members of the society.  You can pick up your ribbon either at the Founding Member’s desk (in the registration area), ESMO Booth, or ESMO Membership Lounge.

All new members signing up at the congress will receive a membership card, which also grants lounge access. Existing members can receive one by visiting us at the ESMO Booth, or at the Membership services counter in the ESMO Members’ Lounge.

Become an ESMO Ambassador

You probably have colleagues who will be attending the congress, but are not yet ESMO members? Congress is the ideal occasion to tell them about the member benefits and why they should join ESMO, too. Bring them to the ESMO booth to sign up and both you and the new ESMO member(s) will be rewarded with special gifts!

Members can pick up an Ambassador Programme Card in the lounge or on the booth to pass on to colleagues in Amsterdam to sign up at the ESMO booth.  Once your colleague has become a member,  you can then stop by the booth or lounge to pick up your gift for introducing a new member!

Also pick up the Ambassador Programme card in the lounge or on the booth, to take home to colleagues who are not at the congress – more information here.

Sit the ESMO Examination

Saturday 28 September, 17.30-20:00 in the Emerald room/press conference room. Registration from 15:30.

The ESMO examination is the first step to becoming an ESMO-certified member and also provides professional credentials and recognition at a national level in many European countries.

Forgotten to register? It is still possible to sign up on site for the few remaining seats (ESMO members only) at the Amsterdam session. Watch this space for details closer to the congress or contact us (select ‘ESMO Exam’). Spaces will be offered on a first come first served basis!
