More than 8,000 participants are expected to meet in Hamburg, Germany and online for the 2023 annual congress of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI).

Taking place between 9-11 June 2023 at the redesigned Congress Centre Hamburg (CCH) in a hybrid format, EAACI will feature sessions from allergy and clinical immunology specialists who will share the latest research on precision medicine, food allergy, allergen immunotherapy, biologicals, immune modulators, prevention of allergic diseases, novel treatment in allergy and asthma and planetary. 

EAACI president, Stefano Del Giacco explained that the EAACI Annual Congress is the "largest and most important in the field in terms of delegate and abstract numbers." Del Giacco’s colleague, Mohamed Shamji, EAACI vice-president congresses, added that the congress is “looking forward” spending time at the modernised CCH.

“It’s a modern and unique centre which will be the perfect backdrop to the great science being discussed this year," said Shamji. "120 scientific sessions along with practical workshops and networking opportunities will unfold over the course of three days in Hamburg – a city with an important history as a hub for trade, that we have identified as the most appropriate setting for knowledge-sharing in our own trade: the field of allergy and clinical immunology.”

Hamburg's minister for Science and Research, Katharina Fegebank, added that it would be hard to imagine Hamburg without its medical conventions. “They support the highly important exchange of views and expertise between scientists and physicians from around the world, driving scientific progress and knowledge transfer, both locally and internationally.

“It is precisely this kind of international collaboration that enables science and research to deliver solutions to today’s challenges. I am very pleased that we will be able to welcome such a leading medical convention as the Annual Congress of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, along with numerous researchers, this year.”
