Around 800 participants and more than 100 exhibitors are expected to attend the 16th European Lead Battery Conference in Vienna, taking place from 5-7 September, where the latest battery research and development will be discussed.  

The 27th Annual Congress of the European Society for Gynecological Endoscopy will attract more than 1,800 participants from over 70 countries. The event, taking place from 7-10 October, will feature a scientific programme including a broad range of lecture topics, live surgical sessions, hands-on training and testing sessions and the GESEA (Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment) diploma programme in endoscopic surgery. The congress provides a unique platform for scientific exchange, exposure to innovative new technologies and networking with colleagues from all over the globe.

Wolfgang Kerkhoff, senior partner and Theo von Froenau, managing partner at PCO Eurokongress said: "We are more than happy to be able to organize both meetings in Vienna, the leadership of both associations were in favour to move to Vienna and as the core PCO for both associations we supported this decision, after careful evaluation, knowing about the ideal set up Vienna can offer for our two meetings."

Christian Mutschlechner, director of the Vienna Convention Bureau at the Vienna Tourist Board added: "The Vienna Convention Bureau was involved since the beginning in the bid process and the cooperation with Eurokongress was a smooth and perfect one and we are convinced that both events will be successful meetings in our city."
