Due to the variety of attendees at DHC and our aim to promote the interaction between all groups, the congress organisation decided that only corporate (“non branded”) sponsorship exposure is allowed.

To meet the CGR Code of Conduct, sponsors are only allowed to approach the healthcare professionals that have a license to prescribe medication. The congress organisation uses different name badges to distinguish the professionals with a license to discribe medication from those who're not and make them easy to recognize for the sponsors.
