From 12th to 17th September 2011, the 19th World Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS) will be held in Portugal, in the city of Funchal on the island of Madeira. Other scientific events will be taking place at the same time, namely the 5th Meeting of the Mediterranean Academy of Forensic Sciences (MAFS) and the 9th Triennial Meeting of the World Police Medical Officers (WPMO).
This is the first time that these three important scientific events in the international calendar will be held simultaneously. It therefore offers an exceptional opportunity for the exchange of ideas and experiences amongst professionals, academics and others, and for debate about the most recent scientific, technological and theoretical advances in the field.
It will also be an important opportunity for the presentation and commercial divulgation of new products, equipment, books, services, etc, within the different areas of forensic science. Indeed, an excellent commercial area will be set up for the purpose in the foyer of the Conference Centre where these events will all take place.
We anticipate that delegates from more than 80 different countries representing all five continents, will be present.
Madeira is an island paradise, with stunning scenery and a subtropical climate. For many, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. With a wide range of activities to entertain tourists, it is a very popular holiday destination. Any stay in Madeira, and its city of Funchal, will certainly prove to be memorable.
The Meetings will take place in the Conference Centre of the Casino Park Hotel, a beautiful building designed by the famous Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer, located above the sea, just 5 minutes walking distance from the centre of Funchal. Scenes of Madeira and the Casino Park Hotel (video with sound) are available at www.iafs2011.mj.pt/aboutmadeira.htm.
If you would like to reserve a commercial space for this event (the commercial areas will be open to participants and the media on the 14th, 15th and 16th September), please let the organizing committee know as soon as possible, by e-mail (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org), telephone (+351 239 854 276/242) or fax (+351 239 836 470/820 549).
There are a limited number of commercial spaces available and they will be reserved on a ‘first come first served’ basis. The logo of all companies represented at the fair will be placed on the official conference website in the area reserved for sponsors. Promotion opportunity information, exhibit hall floor plan and exhibitor forms are already available.
