ECTRIMS Re-elects Congrex as Their Professional Congress Organiser Until 2016

The European Committee for the Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) and Congrex Switzerland have renewed their long-term contract to deliver full PCO (Professional Congress Organiser) services until 2016.

“ECTRIMS has been collaborating with Congrex as the PCO for our annual congress for more than ten years and as our Association Management Company for almost three years. Their highly professional approach and expertise in congress organisation allows us to rely on a trustful and most competent partner. Our congresses have grown significantly during this period and have become a successful landmark in the scientific area of Multiple Sclerosis,” said Prof. Michel Clanet, President of ECTRIMS. “Their flexibility, efficiency and expertise in associations’ needs are the main reasons why we decided to select Congrex as our long-term partner.”

Alain Pittet, Congrex Regional Managing Director for Central Europe, said: “Once again we have proven that our Account Teams understand our clients’ needs and we have exceeded their expectations with the Congrex caring and imaginative spirit. We are very proud that ECTRIMS has chosen to benefit from our ‘more-than-30-years’ experience.”

With over 7’000 delegates from 95 countries ECTRIMS is the world’s largest annual international conference devoted to basic and clinical research in multiple sclerosis. After a new record participation last autumn in Amsterdam, this year’s 28th Congress of ECTRIMS will take place in Lyon (France) from 10 to 13 October 2012.
