Join us in the Marketplace

The Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research offers many opportunities to meet and network with other participants. Market stallholders will be listed in the official Symposium programme and on the website.

The Marketplace will be a lively gathering point and is intended to provide:

  • a central meeting point
  • a place where literature and resources related to health systems research can be displayed
  • an opportunity and a connection point for participants from different sectors and continents to meet and network
  • the possibility for non-profit organizations, educational institutions, companies involved in health systems research and community-based programs to showcase their work (and resources).

Marketplace Venue 

Applications for the Marketplace are now closed.

The Marketplace will be situated in Exhibition Hall B in the Vancouver Convention Centre, East Building – the venue in which the Symposium is taking place. This is a unique space as it is under the “sails” of the east facility. This is directly beside the plenary room and will also feature morning breaks, lunch buffets and posters.

The Marketplace will host the Welcome Reception on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 19.00.
