ESHRE's 2015 Annual Meeting will be held in Lisbon, Portugal for the first time.
The congress venue will be the International Exhibition Centre located in a part of the city renovated for the Expo 98 World Exhibition. The congress venue is situated by the Tagus river and is within easy and rapid access by underground, bus and train, and only 5 minutes away from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown Lisbon.
We trust that the scientific programme will as ever be constructive, attractive and of high quality, and we assure you that the meeting will be an important landmark in ESHRE’s continuing contribution to the improvement of clinical, laboratory and scientific fields in reproduction. The ESHRE Annual Meeting in Lisbon will be a great opportunity for physicians, clinical embryologists, psychologists, nurses, laboratory technicians, sociologists, epidemiologists and scientists to revisit the most recent data and to meet in an informal atmosphere conducive to initiating or strengthening long-lasting interactions.
Lisbon is a charming city, with historic traces of the Roman, Visigoth, Moorish, Medieval and Romantic periods. It was also the point of departure of the great voyages of discovery from which the Portuguese explorers sailed to establish the first direct European contacts with sub-Sahara Africa, South America and the Far East.
It is at the same time a modern, peaceful city full of attractions, with a temperate climate, beautiful light, warm hospitality, excellent gastronomy, imposing monuments, 'bairros' with distinct characteristics and the beautiful neighbouring towns of Estoril, Cascais and Sintra (the summer residence of past kings and queens, which you should try to visit). The months of June and July are particularly rich in cultural events, which take place in many different parts of the city.
There are many other reasons for extending your visit either before or after the meeting, allowing you to discover Lisbon and enjoy its unique atmosphere.
We cordially invite you to join us in Lisbon for the ESHRE 2015 meeting and what we believe will be a truly memorable experience!
