Hamburg will hold the annual congress of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) 2021. Around 2,000 specialists from the medical field of neurosurgery are expected at the event, which will take place at the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg. Following a pitch in Brussels, the contract was subsequently awarded to Hamburg as a result of a focused acquisition strategy as well as excellent collaboration among local stakeholders.
Nele Aumann, head of the Conventions unit at the Hamburg Convention Bureau (HCB), comments: “With the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), we can rely on a strong, committed player with whom we can collaborate closely and who is able to provide relevant expertise in the subject domain. In addition to our city’s favourable infrastructural features and the long track record of the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg in the field of medicine, we can offer a powerful package that has put us in an excellent position, especially in the area of medicine and science.”
Prof. Dr Manfred Westphal, EANS Member and EANS2021 Congress President, from the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) says: “For the UKE, this congress is an opportunity to demonstrate the strong and extensive expertise we have here at the UKE. Our close collaboration with the Hamburg Convention Bureau has now contributed to the fact that this top-class congress is coming to Hamburg.”
