The Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) will host the European Congress of Immunology (ECI) in Dublin in 2024.
The Irish Society for Immunology (ISI) has a proud tradition of immunology research and helped the city beat off competition from Madrid, Florence, Prague and Geneva to win the conference.
This will be the 7th ECI, and takes place, 1-4 September 2024.
The congress is expected to attract over 3,000 delegates from 80 countries and generate up to €5m for the local economy.
Professor Ed Lavelle from Trinity College Dublin, who is President of the ISI and Chairperson of ECI 2024, said: “We are thrilled to have been successful in our recent bid to host the 2024 ECI in Dublin.
“It has been a core ambition of the ISI to host this meeting and demonstrate our commitment to European Immunology in the context of the European Federation of Immunology Societies. Irish Immunology has a strong and growing reputation and this meeting will be a springboard for greater engagement with the international community.”
Adrienne Clarke, Head of Conference Sales in The CCD, added: “We are thrilled that ECI 2024 is coming to Dublin and The CCD. The committee’s hard work and dedication over the years has paid off and we look forward to welcoming all those from The European Congress of Immunology.”
The ISI committee had previously bid twice, unsuccessfully, for the conference.
