25th EFORT Annual Congress

Mark your diaries

Next year’s main theme for the EFORT Annual Congress in Hamburg will be "Collaborating for success". Hamburg is a renowned destination for international congresses and trade fair events, and the teams in Hamburg, much like EFORT, are dedicated to working together to achieve success.

To ensure that we fulfill expectations and deliver an unforgettable congress at the CCH – the Congress Center Hamburg, we are committed to creating optimal conditions that allow for the smooth execution of both, the large-scale trade fair and the 25th EFORT Annual Congress, without any scheduling conflicts.

You’re making progress. That’s why. Hamburg

As a result, the dates for the EFORT Congress have been adjusted to take place now from the 22 to the 24 May 2024.
