Dear friends and colleagues,
In 2019 the 19th European Burn Association´s congress will be held in Helsinki, Finland. The 2003 congress was hosted by Bergen, Norway and now we have the privilege to host the meeting for the second time in the Nordic countries.
Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a popular congress city situated by the sea with very good flight connections from everywhere in Europe. The Marina Congress Center is located in the very centre of the Helsinki City, right next to the sea and within easy walking distance from most central hotels. The city offers a variety of interesting tourist attractions, architecture, museums, beautiful nature and, of course, the Finnish sauna, an essential experience for the adventurous!
Towards the end of the Finnish summer, the weather in Helsinki in early September is still warm but not hot. Therefore, it is advisable to also bring some warmer clothing in case of rainy days.
The congress venue provides an ideal setting for a meeting of this magnitude. As usual, one of the main purposes of this meeting is to connect with fellow burn professionals involved in all branches of burn care. This will be one of our main focuses during the meeting that will naturally also cover all fields of burn treatment.
The Finnish team and EBA warmly welcomes you all to attend the 2019 European Association´s Congress in Helsinki!
