ERS 2015 RAI Amsterdam

From Saturday 26 to Wednesday 30 September, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) Congress took place in RAI Amsterdam. This yearly congress revolves around the ERS mission to alleviate suffering from disease and drive standards for respiratory medicine globally.

This year’s edition hosted a record amount of 23.000 delegates. ACS facilitated ERS in accommodating all delegates and constructed 9 temporary rooms including integrated AV facilities and total set up, such as carpet, chairs etc. In addition, ACS also provided audio visual solutions for all rooms of the RAI conference centre.

During the conference, the Beursplein square in the centre of Amsterdam also hosted a public event focused on encouraging the citizens of Amsterdam to keep their lungs healthy. Free lung tests were offered along with exercise classes, spreading the importance of taking the active option for lung health. Working alongside the RAI Amsterdam and Amsterdam Marketing, ERS involved the city and its residents in the ERS Congress in a unique way.  As a result, the ERS Congress became more visible and has a lasting impression on visitors and residents alike.
