From Friday, September 27th until October 1st, Europe’s biggest oncology congress took pace the Amsterdam RAI, the ECC2013. Medix was there to promote the MedZine app: “It was great, well organized and visitors from around the world were downloading MedZine on the spot!”
The ECC is a partnership between multiple organizations: ECCO, ESMO, ESTRO, ESSO, EACR, EONS and the SIOPE. The diversity of these organizations not only represents the variation of specialisms in each field, but also made it available for nurses and patient representatives.
Nearly 18 thousand visitors from 120 countries attended hundreds of lectures on diverse topics in oncology. More than 800 speakers were arranged for this. In addition, visitors were able to view more than 2 thousand studies, during the poster session. There were a total of 3.306 abstracts submitted. Between the lectures, stands from diverse pharmacists and European associations and societies could be visited. We also stood there and received many positive reactions on our medical news app!
