Following the very successful HAE conferences in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2012 and Washington D.C., USA in 2014, HAEi is delighted to announce that the third HAE Global Conference will be held in Madrid, Spain in 2016.
Attendees can expect a wide variety of important information and learning opportunities that include HAE fundamentals, the most recent clinical advances and consensus treatment recommendations, and advocacy strategies/techniques for gaining or broadening access to HAE medicines. There will be a separate track for young patients that will enable peer group interaction and sharing of insights on how to cope with HAE. Health care professionals will also be an integral part of the conference. We will offer an educational and networking session for nurses specializing in HAE; and HAE physician/researchers from throughout the globe will gather to present abstracts and discuss future research opportunities.
We expect the conference to be attended by approximately 550-600 delegates – including patients, care givers, physician/researchers, other healthcare professionals, and industry representatives – from all over the world.
All conference sessions and social events will take place at the conference venue, Hotel Auditorium Madrid. The hotel is conveniently located right next to Madrid-Barajas Airport. It’s a remarkable venue that has the largest combined hotel and conference capacity in Europe. The hotel has recently entered an agreement to become a Marriott hotel, therefore a complete face-lift is currently taking place.
The dates for the HAE Global Conference in Madrid are 19-22 May 2016.
As usual, the HAE Global Conference offers a blend of work and social/networking opportunities. The Scientific Program and a HAEi Executive Committee meeting will take place on Thursday afternoon 19 May 2016. The nurses’ session and HAE youngster track will take place on Thursday evening. The HAE youngsters will continue on Friday during the day. Conference sessions and exhibitions will run all day Friday 20 May ending with a Spanish tapas reception for all delegates. Conference sessions and exhibitions will continue on Saturday 21 May and the official conference sessions will end with a special dinner on Saturday evening.
