Congress on Gastric Cancer in Prague under German – Czech organisation
Thanks to the German – Czech cooperation during the candidacy in Brazil this year, the Prague Congress Centre will welcome approximately 2000 participants for the 13th International Gastric Cancer Congress (IGCC 2019) in spring 2019. Having one of the most beautiful historical bridges, the famous Charles Bridge, Prague is a destination for symbolical building bridges in the field of gastric cancer. This disease continues to be a major health problem regardless of world region.
Almost 1 million patients are diagnosed with gastric cancer per year and 750 000 die from this illness. Fortunately, research on gastric cancer is quickly developing. New insights into tumor biology and progress in health care allow more precise diagnostics and therefore effective treatment. The International Gastric Cancer Association organising biennially IGCC, provides an international forum for the advancement of research of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gastric cancer. The official support and commitment for IGCC 2019 has been promised by European Organization of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and European Society of Digestive Oncology (ESDO).
“Prague’s meeting is planned to connect the traditional medical standards with the new and innovative approaches to diagnose and treat gastric cancer, including novel molecular, imaging and robotic techniques which allow for more precision and better treatment outcomes”, says prof. Petra Tesarova, the Congress Secretary of IGCC 2019.
Germany has one of the best reputations in the treatment of gastric cancer worldwide. Therefore, the mutual collaboration between Czech and German oncologic communities promises an extraordinary meeting. This two sided approach brings a new experience for the C-IN company, which will provide IGCC 2019 with full PCO services. After the participation on candidacy in Brazil, the C-IN team is looking forward to further cooperation with prof. Petra Tesarova and prof. Florian Lordick.

During the 17th – 19thof November, 2016 the city of Lisbon hosts the 20th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Patient Adherence, Compliance and Persistence (ESPACOMP 2016). Even if the title might sound complicated, the event brings highly relevant topics, which examine the correlation between prescribed medicines and the way they are used by patients. Same as last year in Prague, the meeting is supported with C-IN´s professional services.
The Prague Congress Centre is hosting the 6th European Communication Conference (ECREA 2016), the largest European conference on media and communication studies from the 9th to 12th of November, 2016. Holding an international scientific event such as ECREA 2016 is very important in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, where a critical study of media is still a relatively new phenomenon.
Hosted by the State Veterinary Institute in Jihlava, Czech Republic and organisationally secured by C-IN, the 4th Congress of the European Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (EAVLD 2016) takes place from the 6th until 9th of November, 2016 in the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague. EAVLD brings together professionals with the mission of improving veterinary and public health by providing a platform for communication among veterinary laboratory diagnosticians.
At the turn of September and October 2016 Vienna became a major city for the European dermatologists, when more than 8000 delegates and over 100 exhibitors took part in the 25th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV 2016). A significant part of delegates also met the C-IN team, which took care of accommodation management all around Vienna, on-site logistic support and networking events.
Today is the start of the 2 day 3rd European Conference on Clinical Research (EUCROF 2016) in the Prague Congress Centre. Following Brussels and Paris, Prague became only the third destination so far to host this event specialised in high quality clinical research. The conference program will focus on patients’ roles and organisations, which increasingly becomes more significant in all medical discussions. Industry development is supported by B2B Meetings with the symbolic title, 'West meets East in Prague'.
