One of Oslo’s most famous hotels, Hotel Bristol, will, starting Thursday, host the 49th Nordic Coagulation Meeting. This meeting will allow over 200 hematologists from the Nordic Countries and beyond to exchange knowledge and expertise about the development of their medical field. Congress-Conference has been working closely with Professor Pål Andre Holme, and the rest of the Norwegian organizing committee, to ensure the success of the meeting.
The pharmaceutical industry has also been invited to contribute to this year’s meeting, as a commercial exhibition has been organized at the venue with 20 companies present. Swedish Orphan Biovitrum, CSL Behring, Baxalta and Bayer will also be be contributing their expertise to the meeting through the sponsored symposia they will be holding.
In addition to the engaging topics within hematology to be addressed, networking and socio-cultural activities have not been forgotten! As is (almost) tradition with the conferences organized by Congress-Conference in Oslo, an invitation to an exclusive reception at City Hall has been secured for all participants on Thursday evening.
On Friday night the formal Conference Dinner will take place at Tjuvholmen Sjømagasin. Tjuvholmen is a modern and vibrant neighbourhood built on the formar dockyards of Oslo. Tjuvholmen Sjømagasin is Oslo’s leading seafood concept restaurant and offers a modern twist on seafood cuisine, always with the freshest products. The restaurant will be closed to the public for the evening and the dinner will be followed by a dance.
Another event to look forward to, or dread, is the Oslo jogging tour which Congress-Conference, in collaboration with Oslo Guide Bureau has set up on Friday morning. The tour will take a few adventurous braves from Hotel Bristol through the city center and to Frogner Parken (the open air Vigeland Museum) for an express site-seeing tour. This will be a first at one of our conferences and we look forward to giving participants a fun and active way of discovering Oslo.
