The city of Madrid is on the map of the European rheumatology specialists. The capital will be hosting EULAR 2017, the European Congress of Rheumatology, from 14 to 17 June this year. The event, organised by the European League Against Rheumatism, will gather close to 15,000 delegates in Madrid, generating some 110,700 overnight stays in hotels across Madrid plus 4,800 outreach activities.
Having held the congress once before in Madrid, in 2013, and coinciding with the 70th anniversary of EULAR, the organisers are once again placing their trust in Madrid and in one of the city’s leading congress venues, IFEMA. Their confidence is proof of the Spanish capital’s quality provision and its ability to successfully stage all kinds of meetings and professional events.
The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the European Congress of Rheumatology in Madrid will be marked with a series of public initiatives, including the launch of an awareness-raising campaign in the local community while the congress is being held. The event will also coincide with the launch of the EULAR School of Rheumatology, a quality brand designed to provide courses that guarantee excellence in rheumatology education.
