Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics: June 2021

The Hamlyn Symposium on medical Robotics will be held in June 2021. Exact dates will be confirmed soon. The event will be held either in person or online, depending on the level of the ongoing threat posed by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak by June next year.

Our priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, our staff, our corporate sponsors, and exhibitors so our decision on the format of the event will be made with this in mind. 

The Symposium attracts around 600 international delegates each year, representing numerous countries around the world.

HSMR Sponsor & Exhibitor Pack

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring and/or exhibiting at the 13th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (#HSMR2021).

The symposium has grown in prestige over this period and now reaches an international audience of over 600 delegates with a range of clinical, scientific and engineering expertise. The symposium's focus is the discussion and demonstration of cutting-edge clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery.

Led by Professor the Lord Ara Darzi and Professor Ferdinando Rodriguez, this year’s Symposium entitled “Surgery and Beyond” will be held in June 2021. The format of the symposium will be confirmed by January 2021. If the ongoing threat, due to the COVID-19 pandemic is similar to current levels, the event will be held online. 

We have received full CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons and to complement this we are planning a programme with an increased focus on clinical practitioner centered talks, workshops and presentations. RCS is a well-recognised provider of CPD accreditation which aids participation and engagement by clinical practitioners.

The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics offers opportunities for prospective partners to gain exposure and the ability to showcase new platform designs and allied technologies on medical robotics focusing on the clinical practice of robotics surgery, economic and patient care considerations.

Your organisation can take advantage of an extended period of exposure during the lead up to the symposium and beyond. This period will involve sustained promotion of the symposium and sponsors through a range of channels including press releases, social media activity and other publicity driven opportunities.

The HSMR Exhibitor and Sponsor pack will be issued in January 2021.
