Subject: Unique opportunity to support Emergency Medicine education
The Second Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC)
Sitges/Barcelona, Spain, September 14th-17th, 2003

Dear Potential Exhibitor,

The Second Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC) will take place in Sitges/Barcelona, Spain, on September 14th-17th, 2003. This Congress follows the highly successful first Congress which was held in Stresa, Italy, in September 2001. The First MEMC had over 750 registrants from fifty-two different countries, 4 concurrent tracks and over 350 research abstracts presented. An impressive 90% of the participants rated the Congress as an outstanding or excellent experience and said that they would be interested in participating in future versions of this Congress. The First MEMC brought together in one event the largest line-up ever of specialty founders and leaders in Emergency Medicine as speakers and participants, who stated they consider it the best Emergency Medicine Conference they have ever participated in and described it as "the turning point" for the international development of Emergency Medicine across the globe.

The Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress is the collaborative effort of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) and the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EuSEM). The mission of the Congress is to promote the practice of emergency medicine throughout the world and to provide a forum for information exchange.

What is however exceptional about this Second Mediterranean Congress is 1) its even more impressive line-up of world-renown speakers (relative to the First MEMC), and 2) of National and International Societies and Organizations that have agreed to officially co-organize or sponsor this event and to send delegations to participate in its activities!

They include the Who's Who of the specialty of Emergency Medicine in the world, the fathers, mothers, founders and leaders of the specialty, and the leading specialty organizations in the world. The list is simply impressive and too extensive to be included in this letter.

The Congress uses a multi-track format that covers clinical, procedural, administrative, research, and educational topics. The 5 concurrent tracks include a Spanish Track. However, English will be the official language used by speakers. The conference rooms have the capacity to accommodate anywhere between 200 and 1400 delegates.

The financial support for the Congress comes from a variety of sources, though at all times the educational program remains totally independent of all external influences.

The 2003 Congress offers a unique opportunity for those pharmaceutical and medical industries interested in supporting the development of International Emergency Medicine. Those are listed in the accompanying document titled "Sponsorship Options & Pricing Plan - Second MEMC."

If you are interested in exploring this exciting opportunity, please contact both of us at or by calling Ms. Beth Wilson at 1-800-884-2236 or Dr. Roberta Petrino at 001-39-347-968-9806.

We look forward to meeting you in Sitges/Barcelona and are most appreciative for your consideration.
