European Association of Urology Congress Returns to London

London & Partners, the official Convention Bureau for the city, has announced that the European Association of Urology (EAU) will return to the capital in 2017, after almost thirty years, to host its annual congress.

The five-day event, which will take place at London’s international conference center, ExCeL London, is expected to see over 12,000 medical specialists flock to the capital, bringing in an estimated £41.7m of economic benefit.

As part of the congress, the European Association of Urology Exhibition will also provide delegates with a chance to familiarize themselves with both established products and cutting-edge medical technology. 

Over the past few years, London has been welcoming more major medical events, London & Partners said. Last year alone, the city played host to the European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) congress, the European Association of Periodontology congress (EuroPerio), which attracted 25 percent more delegates than the association’s previous event, and the European Society of Cardiology congress, which broke all previous records of attendance. 

Last year, the city went up to sixth place in the ICCA rankings of popular destinations for international conventions and conferences, and also ranked fourth in terms of delegate attendance. 

London also launched MedCity in 2014, a collaboration between the Mayor of London and the capital’s research and healthcare centers, to increase life sciences investment, commercialization and entrepreneurship in the London-Cambridge-Oxford golden triangle. 

2016 will also see the opening of the Francis Crick Institute, a biomedical discovery institute and a consortium of six of the UK's scientific and academic organizations. 

Upcoming medical events scheduled to take place in London this year include the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) congress in June and the European Respiratory Society congress in September.
