Welcome message of the local hosts
Dear friends and colleagues,
Did you know that the Viennese traditionally start each New Year with a waltz? The quintessentially Viennese ballroom dance, which was awarded UNESCO cultural world heritage status, has served as inspiration for our 2020 Vienna congress logo.
We have chosen this symbol because a Viennese waltz requires rhythm, structure, collaboration and – above all – partnership. So, as the Viennese start their new year, we would like to start our next EUROSPINE congress: in tune with each other. After all, the contributions of our members, our abstract presenters, our speakers, and everyone else involved, have made EUROSPINE Europe’s leading spine meeting and the place to be for spine experts worldwide.
So please accept our warmest invitation to join EUROSPINE 2020, from 7 to 9 October in Vienna in whatever role suits you most. Be it to contribute in the form of an abstract or as an industry partner, or simply to enjoy the high-quality scientific programme for the advancement of your daily practice.
Vienna has a long tradition of welcoming exchange in its bounds, scientific or otherwise. This has contributed to the city’s excellent accessibility, by air, rail or road, as well as state-of-the-art conferencing facilities at Reed Messe Vienna.
The world’s most liveable city (according to “the Economist”) will give you a taste of its rich cultural heritage and famous Austrian hospitality. As you network with your colleagues in spine to exchange opinions and form professional partnerships, the beating heart of the city will be your rhythm – like a waltz.
