Press Release: Basel, November 9, 2017
Congrex Switzerland signs important new contracts with global leading associations like the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) and a long-term contract extension with the European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS (ECTRIMS).
After the success stories of the first months of 2017 communicated in mid-June, Congrex Switzerland is proud to announce that several new clients could be acquired in the second half of this year:
Both the ESC (> 31,000 participants) and the EADV (> 12,000 participants) have chosen Congrex Switzerland as official Housing Agency for their respective Congress in 2021. The ESC has already announced London as the destination; the EADV will communicate at a later stage.
Another acquisition success is the three-year contract for Registration Services with ERS for their congress with over 20,000 participants. Together with ECCMID (European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases; > 12,000 participants) and ILC ® (The International Liver Congress; > 10,000 participants), Congrex Switzerland is continuously strengthening its position as Core Registration Service provider for European medical associations.
Furthermore, during the MSParis2017 two weeks ago, the ECTRIMS Executive Committee signed a contract extension for another three years as Core PCO and Association Management Company including their different Regional Teaching Courses, Summer Schools and Focused Workshops and their annual Congress, which in 2017 has exceeded the threshold of 10,000 participants.
Prof David Miller, President of ECTRIMS quotes: ”Congrex Switzerland is a reliable, accessible and responsive partner for the management of our association. The ECTRIMS activities are a great success year on year. This success is crucially facilitated by the Congrex Switzerland team, who perform their work with high professional standards whilst also maintaining an excellent rapport with the Executive Committee and Council”.
Another important contract extension was agreed with the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS) until 2022.
“Our Head of Sales & Marketing Silvano Schär has been working since years on these global leading associations,“ says Managing Director Alain Pittet and adds “consequently following our company’s strategy to sell only what we certainly can deliver at our high-quality standards. Modesty, reliability, 24/7 responsiveness, Swiss accuracy and the decision to offer each client its tailor-made solution are the basis of these successes.”
