The European Hematology Association Congress, based on its capacity and qualities to host a congress of EHA’s size, chose Stockholm to host the event for the third time. The 23rd EHA congress, taking place at Stockholmsmässan, opened its gates on June 14 for four days, gathering leading scientists and experts on hematology from all over the world.
This year’s congress reached all-time highs in several ways: the number of registered delegates has never been higher – more than 11.ooo, there have never been so many scientific sessions programmed, and the exhibition space has never been larger.
“We have chosen Stockholm as the place to welcome our participants and partners, to share EHA’s vision towards an excellent, ecologically and socially sustainable congress. Stockholm as the first-ever city designated as the European Green Capital, with the world’s leading sustainable airport Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and the Stockholmsmässan, an ecological and socially sustainable meeting place. We as EHA, have made significant efforts to work in a sustainable way, but also to create a social atmosphere where people meet, connect, and take care of each other. By working together, we all contribute to the progress in hematology research, education and ultimately patient care, and the congress venue plays an essential role in this”, said Carin Smand, EHA Executive Director and Rik Craenmehr, Executive Manager, European Hematology Association.
