The Scientific Programme of Madrid 2020 will offer a great selection of symposia and educational sessions related to the current challenges of Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) and Cell Therapy. Spain is one of the top countries contributing to the EBMT Registry and activities with over three thousand HSCT performed annually. Madrid has the largest HSCT activity in the country, performing 20% of these transplants.
The congress venue, IFEMA, is the leading venue for hosting international congresses. Madrid remains in a top position among world cities for a large number of international congresses hosted, including those in medical disciplines such as Haematology, Medical Oncology and Solid Organ Transplantation.
Madrid is one of the most important cultural destinations in Europe and worldwide, and combines rich heritage and lively, contemporary culture. Madrid offers visitors six UNESCO World Heritage Sites within an hour from the city, 89 museums, over 100 art galleries, 21 exhibition halls, 66 theatres and over 5,000 restaurants, of which 16 are Michelin Star. Its modern and efficient public transport system connects the international airport to the city centre in 12-15 minutes, and to the meeting venue in only 8 minutes.
This meeting will be a superb platform for a scientific, educational and networking exchange that will exceed everyone’s expectations. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to Madrid in 2020!
