The European League Against Rheumatism and the Trade Fair Institution of Madrid will collaborate once again after the successful turnout seen at the 2013 edition held at the IFEMA complex

The 20th edition of the EULAR Annual Congress will be held from 14 to 17 June at FERIA DE MADRID.
EULAR, the European League Against Rheumatism, has again chosen Madrid and IFEMA to host its Annual Congress in 2017. It will be the 20th edition of the most important event for bone and joint professionals in Europe, and represents a global benchmark event in this medical field. Following the successful turnout seen at the Congress held at Feria de Madrid in 2013, IFEMA and EULAR will once again collaborate to hold this event just four years after IFEMA was selected for the first annual congress, which brought more than 14,000 professionals to Madrid in an intense display of scientific activity, which had a considerable impact on the city.
EULAR is regarded as the number one platform for the exchange of scientific and clinical information. The main objectives of this event are to educate and inspire, and to promote the creation and development of communication channels between medical professionals and associations on a global level. Furthermore, the EULAR Annual Congress gathers medical educators, professionals, interns and pharmaceutical industry representatives with people suffering from arthritis or rheumatism.
The event will constitute a high-level scientific forum through the various areas of research covered by this international association. The program includes interactive forums with meetings and sessions which will give patients the opportunity to interact with prestigious speakers in the field.
The decision of the European League Against Rheumatism to hold their Annual European Congress in Madrid once again in 2017 is testament to IFEMA's high standing as an institution due to its reputation in the MICE sector, its experience in infrastructure and service management, and its capacity to host important international congresses.

In addition to EULAR, other important international congresses have recently confirmed their choice of IFEMA to host their events in upcoming years. For example, the Oncology Congress ESMO, organised by the European Society for Medical Oncology, in collaboration with the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) will be held between 8 and 12 September 2017, and will constitute one of the most prestigious events worldwide on breakthroughs in cancer treatment. Furthermore, the FDI International Dental Federation Congress will be held in Madrid for the first time from 29 August to 1 September 2017.
