Dear colleagues, ladies, and gentlemen,
We are delighted to invite you to our 2023 Annual Meeting that will be held in Frankfurt from 4 to 6 October.
This year's meeting will mark EUROSPINE's 25th Anniversary and has been conceived not only to convey the best possible gathering in terms of scientific content and connection capability, but also to celebrate our silver jubilee!
Frankfurt needs little introduction as one of Europe's financial hubs and most vibrant cities, with its outstanding connection as well as convention facility ready to host over 3,000 guests for our annual flagship event.
In addition, provisions will be made to have virtual attendance for those who have got fewer chances to travel and reach Frankfurt in person, according to EUROSPINE's comprehensive and inclusive vision.
Special thanks should be addressed to our staff, programme committee members, local hosts and stakeholders for providing us with their knowledge, support and dedication that will make this years' event unforgettable.
With my warmest regards and gratitude,
EUROSPINE President 2023
Welcome to Frankfurt, Herzlich Willkommen in Frankfurt!
The upcoming 2023 annual EUROSPINE meeting and congress in Frankfurt will be the scientific highlight of the year not only because EUROSPINE celebrates its 25th birthday.
EUROSPINE 2023 will provide its visitors with an outstanding scientific programme and the latest in spine research and treatment methods. It will offer numerous opportunities to meet highly renowned specialists from all continents and mingle with your colleagues from around the globe.
EUROSPINE 2023 will take place at the Messe Frankfurt (the international congress and trade fair centre) which is located in the heart of the city. The Messe Frankfurt stands out for its modern presentation amenities and offers excellent access to the city´s public transportation system. Messe Frankfurt is perfectly connected with the world because it is only 15 minutes away from the international Frankfurt airport. Multiple hotels and the central railway station are in walking distance. It is just the perfect place to meet. Frankfurt, located at the river Main, has a history of more than 2,000 years.
With its skyscrapers, hosting mostly banks, including the Central European Bank, the skyline of Frankfurt resembles New York´s (a little bit) and is therefore often called "Mainhattan" by the locals. The Rhein-Main-Area with Frankfurt as the centre hosts around 3 million people and has beautiful nature in the outskirts, including vineyards and national heritage sites which are worth visiting. Further there are excellent restaurants, cultural activities and a lot of nightlife to experience and we encourage you to the check out the multiple sightseeing and shopping opportunities, of course before or after the event.
EUROSPINE 2023 will provide a very attractive scientific programme which will allow all meeting participants to enjoy striking presentations, excellent seminars and research panels, allowing you to take up the latest information and techniques and to bring them back home.
See you in Frankfurt, bis bald in Frankfurt!
