On 1st – 4th June 2022, the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology returns to Copenhagen to stage its annual event and celebrate 75th anniversary. As a leading critical forum for education and knowledge exchange as well as research innovation, networking and fostering friendships, the international association plans to create an outstanding event in the world of rheumatology.
The return to Copenhagen is not coincidental, according to Wonderful Copenhagen, the city‘s tourism marketing organization. EULAR was born in the Danish capital back in 1947 and most recently held its congress here in 2009. And ever since, the local Convention Bureau and Bella Center Copenhagen have worked on resuming the event.
EULAR will take place at one of Northern Europe’s largest congress venues, Bella Center Copenhagen, which in 2021 is launching a brand-new multifunctional hall to its already top-modern facilities.
Participants are expected to comprise prominent physicians and scientists, patients of all ages with their families, as well as health professionals and representatives of the health care industry and commercial companies worldwide.
About the reasons for returning to Copenhagen, Prof. Iain McInnes, EULAR President, said: “EULAR is delighted to return to the city in which our organisation first gathered – in the 75 years since, we have grown to become a leading global organisation representing people with RMDs, advocating on their behalf, innovating, educating and seeking to transform lives. The Congress in 2022 will further these ambitions, as we gather once again in Copenhagen to share the latest research and finest education, and most importantly friendship.”
The EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology is the largest of its kind in rheumatology in Europe. In 2019, the congress attracted over 14,500 participants. EULAR Congress 2021 will be held virtual from Jun 2 – 5.
