Twenty events have already been confirmed for the last four months of the year at the Valencia Conference Centre, which will be attended by 35,850 visitors. Fourteen of these events are congresses and conventions in which 16,150 delegates will be taking part. The venue was designed specifically to host this type of events.
From now until the end of the year, the venue will be showcasing advances in key avant-garde disciplines which have a huge social impact. The month of September began with the 38th Congress of the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM). These events will be followed by two of the most important national congresses to be held during this period, the Congress of the Spanish Society for Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedics (SECOT) and the 37th National Congress of the Spanish Society of Primary Care Physicians (SEMERGEN), which will each congregate around 2,000 medical professionals.
These will be followed by the largest medical congress scheduled for 2015: the 67th Annual Meeting of the Spanish Neurology Society (SEN). After the success of the event held last year in the Conference Centre’s facilities, when the event moved out of Catalonia for the first time, the organisers have once again chosen the Valencia Conference Centre as the meeting point for around 2,700 experts from Spain and overseas who, over a period of five days, will be presenting the latest developments in research, treatment and approaches to different neurological conditions such as epilepsy, headaches, dementia, sleep disorders, and neuropathic pain.
The Centre will also be hosting the 45th Congress of the Spanish Nephrology Society and the 40th National Congress of the Spanish Nephrology Nursing Society, two of the major annual meetings for the Spanish nephrology community, which are expected to be attended by around 1,200 and 800 specialists, respectively.
Similarly, the 57th National Meeting of the Spanish Association of Hematology and Hemotherapy, and the 31st National Congress of the Spanish Thrombosis and Haemostasis Society, which had not been held in Valencia since 2004, will be held simultaneously, bringing together around 1,500 delegates. The events calendar for the year also includes the 11th National Conference of Palliative Care (SECPAL), which is scheduled to be held together with the 6th Conference of the Valencian Society for Palliative Medicine; the 28th Meeting of the Spanish Association of Dermatology and Venereology (AEDV)’s Laser and Surgical Dermatology and Skin Cancer Group; and the National Congress of the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy (SEFH).
One of the highlights on the international front is the 59th Congress of the International Association of Lawyers-UIA-Union International des Avocats, which will be presenting the subject of migration as an important area for this profession, in an event open to lawyers from across the world including general practitioners, specialists, legal professionals, judges, law students and teachers.
The Centre’s schedule until December will also feature other types of events such as symposia, award ceremonies, product presentations, roadshows and other shows including the children’s musicals Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival and Duland.
