Exhibition and Sponsorship

Over the last 40 years our Annual Meeting has grown into Europe’s largest and most influential conference dedicated to the ecological sciences. 1,550 ecologists from across the world attended Ecology Across Borders, our Joint Annual Meeting with sister organisations in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands which took place in Ghent in December 2017 . There were 4 plenary lectures, 600 talks, 550 posters, a sold out exhibition, 13 Thematic Topic sessions, and 13 workshops - plus an Early Careers programme, informal networking and a packed programme of social events.

We would like you to be part of our next Annual Meeting in December 2018.
