Every year in April, clinicians, physicians, scientists and hepatology associates come together from all around the world to learn about the latest in liver research. This year, the International Liver Congress, organised by the European Association for the Study of the Liver EASL took place in Paris, 11 – 15 April.
The congress took place in the brand new Paris Convention Centre, which was only inaugurated in November 2017. With almost 10’000 delegates, the ILC was the first XL congress in the new venue. Due to this fact we have not been able to benefit from the experience others might have made in the new congress centre. Furthermore, our registration team had to deal with large groups of attendees with up to 1’000 participants each.
HOW CONGREX MASTERED IT
For us it is important to address each participant and each group individually and to offer customised solutions. In preparation for the conference, we invested a lot of time to get to know the new venue. It is always important to analyse a new venue in order to enable a tailor-made registration concept. This is particularly important to ensure the safety of each participant and to enable a smooth registration process without long waiting times.
