Invitation to Support

Dear Colleague:

It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to support and attend the Fifth Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC V) in Valencia, Spain, on 14-17 September 2009.

MEMC V is the fifth biannual collaboration of the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EuSEM) and the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM). What started as an intimate meeting of a few hundred people interested in international emergency medicine has blossomed into the largest meeting of emergency practitioners outside the continental United States.

The mission of the Congress is to encourage the practice of emergency medicine throughout the world and to provide a forum for exchange of information. The final result will be better care for emergency patients worldwide.

We will build on the success of the 2007 MEMC IV in Sorrento, Italy, where more than 1,500 delegates from 72 countries attended sessions presented by dozens of world-renowned speakers.

One theme runs throughout evaluations from the last several congresses: attendees say that it is the best emergency medicine conference they’ve ever attended. Others point out that it has served as the turning point for the development of emergency medicine in their country.

Multiple tracks cover clinical, procedural, administrative, research and educational topics. The speakers are among the best educators in the world, and the topics are cutting edge. Hundreds of other attendees present abstracts both in oral and poster format.

Financial support for the Congress comes primarily from registration fees and from a variety of other sources. Attendees from the United States and from countries with a reciprocity agreement with the US receive AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credit™. For this reason, all ACCME guidelines for commercial support are strictly followed, and at all times the educational programme remains totally independent of external influences.

MEMC V offers you a unique opportunity to promote your products to the largest international meeting of emergency medicine practitioners outside the United States during 2009. It will also be an excellent platform for anyone interested in supporting the development of international emergency medicine.

We look forward to meeting you in Valencia and deeply appreciate your consideration.
