Introduction

CELEBRATE 30 YEARS OF OUR ANNUAL MEETING IN ONE OF THE WORLD’S LEADING ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL CENTRES.

In 2016 the EACTS Annual Meeting returns to Barcelona for the fourth time, previous meetings having been held in the city in 1993, 2005 and 2012. The cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona is defined by quirky art and architecture, imaginative food and vibrant street life.

Its medieval roots are featured in the maze-like Gothic Quarter but it’s modernist personality radiates in architect Antoni Gaudí’s work, seen throughout the city and showcased in his fantastic Sagrada Família church.

The city’s influence in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities.

The venue for the 2016 Meeting will be the Centre Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB), a modern, innovative, 100,000m2 event space facing the sea and equipped with the latest technology and services. We look forward to celebrating our 30th Anniversary with you and welcoming you to another successful Annual Meeting in October.
