ExCeL London and the London Convention Bureau have been selected to host the 2021 European AIDS Conference (EACS) on October 27 to 30, organized by the European AIDS Clinical Society. The society’s conference aims to bring together scientists from all over Europe to facilitate an exchange of the latest information regarding clinical aspects of the disease.
EACS is the latest in a succession of medical associations to have chosen London and ExCeL for events between 2021 and 2025. Others include the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH). Next year will also see the return of key events, including EASL (European Association for the Study of the Liver), EWMA (European Wound Management Association) and EAACI (European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology), following previous successful events in London.
Dr Sanjay Bhagani, President-elect of the European AIDS Clinical Society and Consultant Physician, Royal Free Hospital, London, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the 18th European HIV Conference in London in 2021. The UK has made great progress in achieving and surpassing the UNAIDS targets for the Fast-track strategy for eliminating AIDS as a major Global Health threat by 2030. This will be a unique opportunity to share our experience and advances in science with partners and colleagues across Europe and globally and learn from each other. London will provide a truly multi-cultural experience for all our delegates.”
