Prague-based company will handle large part of the adminIn June 2016 the Austria Center Vienna will be the venue for one of Europe’s largest annual congresses. The 53rd European Renal Association – European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) Congress – will be attended by delegates counted in thousands. The President of the Congress will be Professor Dr Gert Mayer, Head of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Medical University Innsbruck, a specialist in nephrology and hypertension.
A company based in Prague will again play a large part in the organisation of the Congress. It is C-IN, a member of IAPCO. As the official housing agent, C-IN will provide services that include visa management, airport transfers, provision of hospitality staff along with complete hotel administration. It will also be responsible for the social programme, comprising dinners, receptions, city tours and excursions.
C-IN carried out this work for the 48th ERA-EDTA Congress when it was held in Prague in 2011, attended by 10,000 delegates. Petra Kamenska, C-IN Project Manager, comments: ‘We value highly the very positive response that we received from the key stakeholders at that time and are proud to have been engaged in the organisation of the largest scientific event ever held in the Czech Republic.’
The scientific programme in 2011 consisted of more than 60 symposia as well as plenary lectures and mini lectures and more than 1,000 poster presentations.
Since 2002, the C-IN team has organised over 550 projects. It also acts as a permanent secretariat for several European associations.
