Copenhagen welcomes back the the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology in 2022, as the association marks its 75th anniversary in the city where it all began. EULAR was born in the Danish capital back in 1947 and most recently held its congress there in 2009.
The congress is the largest of its kind in rheumatology in Europe and, in 2019, attracted over 14,500 participants.
Ms. Kit Lykketoft, director of the Copenhagen Convention Bureau, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome back EULAR congress back to Copenhagen for its 75th anniversary. This is where it all began in 1947. And this is where delegates can look forward to not only great knowledge sharing and celebrating medical advances in their field, but also to visiting a city that takes great pride in fostering strategic partnerships across the entire meetings eco-system, offers excellent hotel and meeting facilities, and a great gastro scene.”
Professor Iain McInnes, EULAR president, said: “EULAR is delighted to return to the city in which our organisation first gathered – in the 75 years since, we have grown to become a leading global organisation representing people with RMDs, advocating on their behalf, innovating, educating and seeking to transform lives. The Congress in 2022 will further these ambitions, as we gather once again in Copenhagen to share the latest research and finest education, and most importantly friendship.”
EULAR will take place at Bella Center Copenhagen, which in 2021 is launching a new multifunctional hall
