»As a co-chair of the Local Organising Committee I have recently been engaged with the organisation of the 37th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) which was held at the GR during the first week of May, 2019. We welcomed more than 2.300 delegates from all over the world, who attended plenary symposia, debates and discussions, were able to choose between four simultaneous parallel sessions and eight parallel early morning Meet-the-expert sessions as well as numerous E-poster discussions. The venue has been a complete success: easy access and close proximity to the city centre, friendly architecture and daylight in most of the interiors with hardly any stairs. AV and IT services were flawless and the catering has been delicious. We have had nothing but extremely positive feedback from all the participants saying that this has been one of the best ESPID meetings in the recent years.
My sincere thanks goes to the extremely dedicated and professional team at the GR, as well as to the Ljubljana Convention Bureau for all the continuous support in the preparation of this large and successful event.«
