The EFORT Annual Congress new PCO

By EFORT Head Office |

EFORT – the European Federation of national associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology – will today conclude its 20th anniversary scientific congress here in Lisbon Portugal.

The society itself is actually 28 years old having been founded in 1991 in Marentino, Italy. At the time EFORT was established by the national associations for orthopaedics and traumatology from twenty European countries. Today it has grown to represent over 41 national member societies from 39 member countries, as well as 13 associate scientific members and reaches over 32,000 O&T practitioners through it’s monthly communications.

The annual congress is the highlight of another EFORT year dedicated to the O&T community and as such is a fitting landmark to both reflect on the past milestones and advances whilst remaining firmly focused on the future and the needs of physicians, healthcare care practitioners and the delivery of continuing medical education for the O&T community.

The PCO (Professional Congress Organiser) is an independent partner that works behind the annual congress scenes to assist with logistics and technical expertise that they offer to a range of conference organisers – and in particular medical societies, so that organisations like EFORT may channel their expertise into unbiased educational science.

EFORT is pleased to announce that Congrex Switzerland have been appointed as the PCO of the annual EFORT congress for Vienna 2020 onward, building on the historic path occupied until now by MCI Berlin with whom EFORT have worked closely these past 8 years.

EFORT and Congrex Switzerland look forward to facing the new challenges of delivering the best design and formats of congresses and education for the future together as well as working with all our partners, members and collaborators to strengthen the impact and legacy arising from each EFORT annual congress.
