Over 8,000 Biologists Gather in Barcelona for the 24th ECCMID Congress

This year the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) will host fourteen of the top European and international medical congresses. The largest of these is the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), which will gather together over 8,000 delegates from 10 to 13 May.

This European event was previously held at the CCIB in 2008. Barcelona is the only city to have hosted the ECCMID on more than one occasion in the past 10 years.

Last year, medical conferences represented 23.8% of all association events and 71.4% of the CCIB’s total revenue in this international segment for holding medical meetings.

Other international conferences that will be hosted by the CCIB this year include: the annual event organised by the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), which will bring together 6,000 delegates in September; the 45th Union World Conference on Lung Health, expected to welcome over 2,000 delegates in late October; the fifth congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies (EAPS) in October, bringing together 1,500 professionals; and ISUOG 2014, the World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which expects to attract over 2,500 gynaecologists worldwide to the city in mid-September. As regards national events, the CCIB will be the venue for the 56th Congress of the Spanish Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology.
