Individuals requiring an official Letter of Invitation can request one from the ESICM Registration Department. To receive a Letter of Invitation, attendees must first register to the Congress and submit payment in full.
The Letter of Invitation does not financially obligate the K.I.T. Group or ESICM in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the Congress are the sole responsibility of the attendee.

**** Important Alert ****

There are an increasing number of fraudulent websites and individuals that impersonate ESICM and our Annual Congress, but that are in no way associated with ESICM.

We would like to alert all our members and delegates to be aware of companies claiming to be ESICM partners and we strongly advise you to only use our official Congress registration partner, KIT.

Please also pay attention to fraudulent websites. There is only one ESICM LIVES 2023 Website and ESICM’s only official provider of housing and registration is KIT Group GmbH.

ESICM will not accept any responsibility for bookings made via unofficial websites and agencies.


AIFA (Italian Medicines Agency) Congresses and Meeting in Italy

In Italy congresses and meetings on topics related to the use of pharmaceuticals are governed by Article 124 of Legislative Decree 24 April 2006, N 219 (The Decree).

In Italy, any pharmaceutical company (not only Italian pharmaceutical companies since the congress will be held in Italy) that sponsors a congress on topics related to the use of its pharmaceutical products, must submit an application to the competent unit of the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) to obtain a specific authorization through a single intermediary who submits all requests for authorisation.

So, if your pharmaceutical company has a marketing authorization (MAH or AIC) or the companies responsible for the effective marketing of your pharmaceutical products and sponsor the congress on topics related to the use of your pharmaceutical products, you should contact Atlante Viaggi communicating your SIS code, by July 15th, 2023:

As per Italian law, the AIFA authorization is necessary

  • for each pharmaceutical company (with Marketing Authorization Holder or the companies responsible for the actual marketing of pharmaceutical products) sponsoring the congress on topics in any way related to the use of its own pharmaceutical products.

the AIFA authorization is not necessary

  • when a company promotes by advertising only medical devices or food supplements during a congress (products without Marketing Authorization)
  • when a company sponsors a meeting about topics not related to the use of any of its own medicinal products; in this case the company is not allowed to expose or distribute any kind of advertising material during the meeting (Section 9 art. 124 D.L. n.219/06)

For more information you must contact your Regulatory Office or your Italian branch to receive assistance in this procedure which is mandatory.
