2013: 16th European Society for Organ Transplantation-ESOT Congress


‘The International Transplant CongressTM‘ organized by the European Society for Organ Transplantation bringing together the leading experts of all fields related to transplantation, will be held again in Vienna after sixteen years.

Austria can boast a renowned clinic and academic tradition in transplantation and this aspect was certainly important in the choice of destination; but equally important was the appeal of the town, which besides being a ideal location thanks to its conference, hotel and transport facilities, offers delegates and visitors an extraordinary environment where history and architecture of the past are integrated with the current variety of a dynamic cultural offer.

AIM Group International, one of the major European PCOs, will collaborate with the European Society for Organ Transplantation Congress Secretariat to developed a very innovative project that will make the Congress not only a crucial event for the scientific community, but also a keystone for medical meeting in general.

In close collaboration with the Vienna Convention Bureau and with the city authorities, AIM Group International will offer support in handling the more than three thousand delegates that the Congress will gather at the Austria Centre Vienna for four days, looking to deliver a memorable cultural event for the participants.

“The ESOT 2013 Vienna Congress will mark further the innovations in our conference format” declares Annalisa Ponchia, Executive Officer of ESOT “We have already introduced significant changes in our ESOT 2011 Glasgow Congress this year, such as an Hybrid Poster Area and more interactive presentation formats.

We want to carry on our social media platform to stimulate networking before and during the Vienna congress, and pursue the usage of up-to-date technological tools to make more effective the scientific content. The title of the Congress, “Pushing the limits” refers not only to the development of techniques of transplantation, but also reflects our philosophy in disseminating the (scientific) information”.
