Congrex Brings Efficiency To Trio Of Medical Conferences

Congrex Sweden has announced that it will be the exclusive supplier to three of Sweden’s prestigious medical conferences to be held in Uppsala in 2013. The three conferences will be produced back-to-back by Congrex Sweden’s conference team in three consecutive weeks. The move represents a maximisation of resources and efficiency in executing these three very large events for Congrex clients in order to create value and successful outcomes for all involved.

The conferences to be organised will be Radiology Week, Surgery Week, and Orthopaedics Surgeon Week with a total of 6,000 participants expected. It is the first time these meetings will take place consecutively and in one place, and it’s a first for the city of Uppsala.

The three medical congresses have previously taken place at various other locations throughout Sweden and at different times of the year. For the first time with the 2013 editions, they will be held back-to-back on weeks 34, 35 and 36 respectively, from 19 August to 6 September.

“The staging of these three events all in a row brings a tremendous advantage and great efficiency to all and everything involved,” said Radiology Week’s Congress Director, Professor Anders Magnusson, Head of Imaging and Functional Medicine at University Hospital. “We immediately saw great benefits, especially financially, to coordinate the event.”

The three events will all take place at the Uppsala Concert & Congress, UKK. Beyond the 14,000 sqm congress hall that will be used, a large tent will be built in Vaksala Square to accommodate the space needed for the convention exhibits. Additionally, organisers are planning activities at various public events.

Congrex Sweden Managing Director, Lena Fletcher said, “We are very proud to be hosting these important meetings and are really looking forward to working with our clients, and the city of Uppsala again, to make each and every one of the conference days a thoroughly successful and gratifying experience for all concerned.”
