Vienna Lands Two Top Medical Congresses

The European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) will hold its 16th Congress at the Austria Center Vienna from September 8–11, 2013. The congress will see over three thousand delegates discuss the latest findings in organ and tissue transplantation.

The Vienna Convention Bureau and the Austrian acquisition team have also secured the World Lung Cancer Congress for the city. The event will be held at the end of August/beginning of September 2017. More than 8,000 specialists are expected to attend.

“These two large-scale events will generate a total of around 50,000 bednights for Vienna and contribute some 30 million euros to Austria’s gross domestic product,” said Christian Mutschlechner, Director of the Vienna Convention Bureau at the Vienna Tourist Board. “Once again, the tried and tested cooperation between the organisers, the congress centres involved and the Vienna Convention Bureau played a decisive role here. This was particularly difficult in the competition for the World Lung Cancer Conference, which required all those involved to exhibit remarkable perseverance. However, their mutual support for one another also helped tremendously. It has not yet been decided where the conference will be staged: both the Austria Center Vienna and the Messe Wien are currently under consideration.”
