26TH EUROPEAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY & VENEREOLOGY (EADV) CONGRESS
Palexpo *GENEVA, SWITZERLAND Visit the Venue to read more
My dear friends,
The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology will shortly celebrate its 30th birthday and what better location for this event than Switzerland, the home of the EADV Headquarters, and specifically to showcase it in Geneva in parallel with the 26th Congress!
There are numerous reasons not to miss this annual Congress, and in fact there should be nothing to keep you from coming!
Firstly, the scientific programme will again provide an unmatchable opportunity for continuing medical education and professional development through a multiplicity of finely-tuned sessions that engage you in an inimitable 360 degree view of our speciality. The newly-structured thematic format of the sessions with their various tracks will meet your expectations and go beyond.
Secondly, the success of the Congress with participants coming in from all over the world should provide you with the prospect of sharing experiences with your international colleagues, to nurture new bonds and reinforce the old.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to discover both Switzerland and Geneva with their wonderful mountains and lakes, but also their historical and cultural backgrounds, their innovating high-tech industries reaching so far beyond delicious chocolate and cuckoo clocks. In addition, the old city centre with its treasures, the Reformation wall, wonderful museums and impressive collections, as well as the headquarters of both the International Red Cross and the United Nations, the CERN and the jet d’eau await your visit. Small but international, acknowledged with having one of the best qualities of life on the planet, Geneva has a worldwide reputation and will amaze you. Try its excellent restaurants and indulge in first-rate local wines, which are amongst the best in Switzerland.
I hope I have convinced you to come to Geneva and enjoy the success of the EADV Congress and the EADV birthday with us, and if a further aggregate is necessary, I had the privilege of spending an important part of my life and professional career in Geneva and, dear friends, this location and this Congress are truly not to be missed.
My very best wishes to you all and warm greetings from Switzerland,
Prof. Luca Borradori
