The ECVO invites you to the Annual Meeting, May 18-21, 2017 in Estoril, Portugal
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is with great pleasure that the ECVO invites you to attend its meeting next year to be held in Estoril, Portugal. The increasing success of the annual meeting has meant that we need to meet in venues with larger conference centres and to move away from hotels. Hence the amazing seaside resort of Estoril in 2017. The lectures, as well as the industrial exhibition, will take place at the Estoril Congress Center. The Auditorium seats more than 500 delegates in theatre style and offers a large exhibition hall allowing us to mingle with our friends from the industry during the breaks. The Welcome Reception will take place in the magnificent foyer of the Conference Center. The Gala Dinner might call for flip flops instead of high heels, as we are looking for options for a Beach Party!
Estoril is situated only 30 km west of Lisbon at the Cascais coast. It can be reached from the Lisbon International Airport in 35 minutes by car or one hour by train. There are several hotels in different price classes within walking distance to the ECC. Estoril started as a small fishing village, but its beautiful beaches and coastline attracted many artists, writers and aristocrats during the 20th century. It is still very much appreciated by tourists from all over the world and its casino, one of the largest in Europe, has inspired Ian Fleming for his first James Bond novel, “Casino Royale”.
