Congrex Switzerland wins and renews long term association management contracts
The European Committee for the Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis ECTRIMS has renewed their association management contract with Congrex Switzerland until end of 2017.
In addition also the mandate for the ECTRIMS summer schools and workshops has been prolonged for the same period.
“I find in Congrex Switzerland a reliable partner for all aspects related to the management of our association”, says Xavier Montalban, President of ECTRIMS and adds: “the ECTRIMS events, workshops and summer schools as well as the annual meeting are a great success year on year which is thanks to the managers and staff of Congrex Switzerland.”
Furthermore Congrex Switzerland has been granted a further two years contract by the European Stroke Organisation ESO to provide them with a full range of association management services consultancy, ranging from membership growth strategies to implementation of various projects such as the Virtual Stroke University and the European Stroke Science Workshop to be held from November 19-21, 2015 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Kennedy Lees, President of ESO says: “We are very happy to continue our successful partnership with Congrex Switzerland for further years. We appreciate their professional consultancy and caring attitude”.
“We are very pleased that the committees of ECTRIMS and ESO feel our dedication in our day-to- day work and our consultative approach to their needs.” says Julia Bicher, Account Director, and adds: ”Our excellent connections within the stroke academia were certainly the reason why since early this year we have also been mandated by the Swiss Stroke Society as their administrative secretariat”.
“These long-term partnership agreements are highlighting our positioning as experts not only in the meeting management but also in the association management market”, says Alain Pittet, Managing Director.
