The European League Against Rheumatism Congress was held in Rome on 16-19 June and attracted 15,500 delegates.

It was the first time in the congress’ decade-long history that an official transport plan, which Ovation Italy managed, was put in place.

Ovation Italy co-ordinated with the local public transport authority and police to operate shuttle services between Rome’s principal hotels and the Fiera Roma Congress Centre.

During the four-day congress, 287 50-seat coaches transported 8,000 delegates a day, and police patrols were stationed at the congress centre and on the nearby motorway to escort the coaches between the venue and hotels.

Ovation Italy managing director Michael Libotte said: "We are immensely proud to have managed such a massive operation – the largest in Italy during the past four years."
