ESRS 2018

The biennial Congress of the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS) took place in Basel, Switzerland  in September 2018. After an outstanding conference in 2016 the expectations for 2018 were extremely high.

The Challenge

Continuing the Success of Past Congresses: In 2016 the ESRS Congress took place in Bologna, Italy and was notable for excellent food, plenty of sun and affordable prices. As expected, the congress was well attended! For 2018 the society decided to hold the congress in Basel, Switzerland. Since Basel is a much more expensive city, the question arose: Can we attract as many attendees as the previous event?

How Congrex mastered it

We are pleased to be able to say that there were almost the same number of delegates in Basel as there were in Bologna in 2016. This can be explained by the following:
Congrex, the official PCO of ESRS, is located in Basel, so of course we have an extensive knowledge of the city and are able to arrange social events in places only known to the locals. Having long-established and good relationships with local suppliers and hotels, we are able to guarantee the best prices.
Additionally, Basel is a beautiful city and Switzerland is a diverse country, accessible from all over the world. Basel airport is just 20 minutes from the Congress Centre and Zurich Airport – an international hub – is well connected by train.
Basel Congress Centre is modern, bright and is the perfect size for a meeting like this (all posters within one area, all lecture halls close to each other, and all within easy walking distance).
Switzerland is not just famous for its traditions but also for being a well organised and structured culture, and accordingly, the entire congress proceeded without any problems and on schedule.

The end result – over 1,800 satisfied participants.
