IFCC-EFLM EuroMedLab 2019
XXIII EuroMedLab Barcelona 2019
Barcelona will proudly host the EuroMedLab 2019, the 23st IFCC-EFLM European Congress of Laboratory Medicine, from May 19th to May 23th 2019.
The Congress Venue, the Barcelona’s International Convention Centre (CCIB), is formed by two buildings of great architectural value: the Convention Centre designed by the architect José Luís Mateo and the Forum Building by the architects Herzog & De Mouron. It has a total surface area of 100,000 m2 distributed between 45 meeting rooms and a large 11,000 m2 exhibition hall with a total capacity up to 15,000 people. It is placed at the end of the Diagonal Street, the principal artery of Barcelona and it is well connected by the public transport network.
Barcelona is a Mediterranean city very well known for its architectural spots (roman, medieval gothic, art-deco...), art museums (Picasso, Miró...), cultural events (Opera, Ballet, Theatres...) and gastronomy (cuisin style based on creativity and Mediterranean cuisine).
Moreover, it is the only large city in Europe that boasts 5 kilometers of beaches in the city itself. Barcelona is also a well-connected city with an excellent network of flights with its International airport located only 15 minutes from the city center by bus or metro.
On behalf of the Spanish Society of Clinical Biochemistry and Molecular Pathology (SEQC), Society founded 40 years ago, it is a great pleasure to invite you to participate to this special event and to enjoy our lively city.
