Amsterdam, August 29, 2018
ESC Congress, the annual conference of the European Society of Cardiology, has been an overwhelming success once again this year, attracting almost 33,000 healthcare professionals from 156 countries. The largest and most influential medical conference in Europe – and the largest cardiovascular conference in the world — took place in Messe Munich from August 25th to 29th.
Just before the start, ESC announced a formal agreement with ACS for the construction of temporary lecture rooms and the supply of audio visual facilities for their congresses in the coming four years. This was done after a comprehensive tender procedure, in which the offer of ACS was extensively examined and compared to those of other suppliers in the market.
Jessica Ylstra (CEO ACS): “ACS is proud to have supported ESC Congress over the past 20 years, and we are honoured to have been chosen as the main supplier in a new perspective of innovation. We are looking forward to the continued collaboration.”
In Munich, ACS was responsible for the building and furnishing of 13 temporary lecture rooms, each capable of holding 200 to 1,000 people. Together with Messe Munich, ACS also facilitated the provision of audio and visual facilities in the 9 existing rooms of the congress center, including the main auditorium which holds 3,000 people. ESC Congress this year was in every aspect a success.
.Isabel Bardinet (CEO ESC) said: “Munich was just the latest example of the productive partnership we have developed with ACS. We appreciate how they continually adapt to our changing needs, ensuring ESC Congress delivers the very latest science to an ever-growing number of cardiologists.”
As ESC Congress 2018 now comes to an end, preparations have already begun for ESC Congress 2019 in Paris and 2020 in Amsterdam, the home city of ACS.
We are proud to lend our innovative approach to building these spaces so that they provide a totally new look and feel to the delegates.
