EULAR returns to birthplace Copenhagen for 75th Anniversary

A meeting of rheumatologists is returning to its birthplace next year.

Copenhagen will welcome back the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology in June, 2022, as the association marks its achievements and 75th anniversary in the city where it all began

As a leading forum for education, research, networking and fostering friendships, the international association plans to create an outstanding event in the world of rheumatology.

EULAR first met in the Danish capital in 1947 and returned most recently in 2009.

Kit Lykketoft, Director of the Copenhagen Convention Bureau, said: “We are thrilled to welcome back EULAR congress back to Copenhagen for its 75th anniversary. This is where it all began in 1947. And this is where delegates can look forward to not only great knowledge sharing and celebrating medical advances in their field, but also to visiting a city, that takes great pride in fostering strategic partnerships across the entire meetings eco-system, offers  excellent hotel and meeting facilities, and a great gastro scene.”

On the return to Copenhagen, Prof. Iain McInnes, EULAR President, said: “EULAR is delighted to return to the city in which our organisation first gathered – in the 75 years since, we have grown to become a leading global organisation representing people with RMDs, advocating on their behalf, innovating, educating and seeking to transform lives. The Congress in 2022 will further these ambitions, as we gather once again in Copenhagen to share the latest research and finest education, and most importantly friendship.”

Participants of EULAR 2022 are expected to comprise prominent physicians and scientists, patients of all ages with their families, as well as health professionals and representatives of the health care industry and commercial companies worldwide. All of whom can look forward to a wide selection of networking opportunities and knowledge exchange, disseminating the latest progress in EULAR activities, and celebrating the extraordinary advances made within the field of rheumatology.

EULAR will take place at one of Northern Europe’s largest congress venues, Bella Center Copenhagen, which in 2021 is launching a brand-new multifunctional hall to its already top-modern facilities.
