In 2019, the 29th International Congress of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 28 September – 2 October.
The ERS International Congress is the largest respiratory meeting in the world that brings together professionals from all areas of respiratory medicine.
The scientific and educational programme addresses the needs of researchers, clinicians, general practitioners and allied health professionals. It consists of a range of scientific and educational events, including courses, research seminars and thought –provoking conferences and activities as e-learning, interactive teaching and activities to harmonies education standards.
2019’s congress venue is Madrid, the capital of Spain and one of the most visited Spanish cities.
Due to the dictatorship that ended 30 years ago, it became a real metropolis quite late, which is why there is still a small and tranquil old town center that once ruled a whole kingdom. In Madrid the Castellano Spanish is spoken – at a speed that is overwhelming many non-Madrilenians.
Fortunately, Madrid’s most popular destinations are centrally located, for example the Puerta del Sol, a large plaza serving as the scene of festivals, important gatherings and street performers as well as a hub for the public transportation network.
Furthermore Madrid’s art museums as the Prado or the Reina Sofia are highly renowed and the area known as Art Walk, boasts art and beauty as you’ll see nowhere else in the world.
Last but not least we also recommend gazing at architectural marvels while sipping a café con leche in one of the cozy street cafés for example on the Plaza de Santa Ana, stroll through tapas bars along the Gran Vía or simply take a break from the big city by taking a walk in the Retiro Park. The many different attractions in Madrid are just too captivating to miss.
