Easy to reach Frankfurt wins two medicals


Messe Frankfurt - the fairground in the heart of the city

The European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) and the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) have decided to hold their annual congresses in Frankfurt, Germany. EBMT is expecting 6,000 participants in March 2019 and EULAR will have 15,000 participants in June 2020.

 Frankfurt puts its success down to tthe joint efforts of the city, the convention location and the scientific representatives, as well as locational advantages, like reachability, infrastructure and the quality and capacity of the venues.

 Thomas Feda, Managing Director of Tourismus+Congress GmbH Frankfurt am Main: “We are proud that our efforts to position Frankfurt as a city with great charm, an excellent choice of hotels, tourism sights, shopping, art, culture, cuisine and an appealing cosmopolitan outlook have borne fruit. This has led to our city establishing itself in the eyes of the world as a medical conference venue as well.” 

Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt GmbH, adds: “We are very pleased at the success of these joint efforts, which once again show the advantages we offer and the excellent image we have as an international congress location. Our contribution to this is our expansive, state-of-the-art exhibition grounds with flexible and diverse conference facilities right in the heart of the city – something that not many other European congress destinations can offer.“

Both congresses were won due to the hard work and commitment of Prof. Peter Bader (Head of Stem Cell Transplantation and Immunology at the Clinic for Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Frankfurt University Hospital), Prof. Thomas Klingebiel (Director of the Clinic for Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Frankfurt University Hospital) and Prof. Ulf Müller-Ladner (Kerckhoff-Klinik GmbH, Department of Rheumatology, Bad Nauheim) – who promoted Frankfurt as a centre for medical conferences.

 Prof. Ulf Müller-Ladner said: “We are regularly involved in organising national and international medical conventions, sometimes with more than 15,000 participants. From this experience, I can safely say that Frankfurt is in the champions league of international congress destinations. The support provided by the well coordinated team of the City of Frankfurt and Messe Frankfurt shows the professionalism of the partners.”
