Now in its 14th year, this will be the first time that the congress has been held in Lausanne, attracting more than 500 ophthalmologists, other doctors and scientists from across the world.
Running for three days, conference delegates will also attend a gala dinner at the Olympic Museum on the shores of Lake Geneva as well as a welcome reception at the Royal Savoy.
The Royal Savoy Hotel completed a major 100 million CHF (£79 million) renovation project two years ago, adding a new spa facility, as well as upgrading seven dedicated meeting and event spaces which host up to 480 people.
Carl P. Herbort Jr, MD, founding member of the International Ocular Inflammation Society (IOIS), said: "We chose the destination as it offers a wide variety of venues and attractions, allowing all our guests to enjoy an unforgettable experience in a truly breathtaking location. So far we have really enjoyed working with Lausanne Tourism & Convention Bureau as we prepare for the congress and we are looking forward to a successful congress."
Lausanne Tourism & Convention Bureau will support the event with a wide number of operational services, including excursion management and accommodation coordination, using the convention bureau’s bespoke hotel booking platform.
The optional excursions include a city tour, wine tasting in the Lavaux vineyard, a UNESCO World heritage site, and the chance to tour the castle of Gruyères.
