Frankfurt to host major medical congresses

The Frankfurt Convention Bureau and Messe Frankfurt have won bids to host two major medical congresses in 2020.

The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) will take place from 3-6 June 2020, with 15,000 participants expected to attend.

The annual convention of the European Hematology Associaton (EHA) will follow, from 11-14 June. EHA is the largest organisation in Europe that is geared towards all medical professionals, researchers and academics with an interest in hematology.

Rik Craenmehr, Executive Manager of the European Hematology Association, commented: “Back in Frankfurt again after 19 years, we are looking forward to holding EHA’s 25th anniversary congress here. With its outstanding reachability, international and varied cityscape and wide range of cultural institutions, the city is the perfect backdrop for our anniversary event.

“The Messe Frankfurt locations will offer our participants – which number more than 12,000 – a prestigious environment, and having Messe Frankfurt as our service partner allows us to draw on its experience and expertise.

Romina Gowin-Becker, Director Project Management Congresses at Messe Frankfurt GmbH, added: “This is a very welcome affirmation of Messe Frankfurt and the service we offer. As well as our locations, we provide organisers with a customised range of reliable services. In this way, we give our customers the necessary scope for creativity while allowing them to focus on the core task of managing their congresses.”
