The international community of neurosurgeons will be heading to Hamburg in 2021, when the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) holds its annual congress in the city.

Around 2,000 specialists are expected at the event, which will take place at the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg.

In the bid to host the 2021 EANS conference, Hamburg was up against strong competition including Jerusalem, Rotterdam, and Krakow.

Nele Aumann, head of the conventions unit at the Hamburg Convention Bureau (HCB), said: "We are systematically building on Hamburg’s cluster industries. This is where the city’s strengths are to be found, and these strengths are also highlighted in the context of bidding procedures.

"In addition to our city’s favourable infrastructural features and the long track record of the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg in the field of medicine, we can offer a powerful package that has put us in an excellent position, especially in the area of medicine and science."

Prof Manfred Westphal, EANS Member and EANS2021 congress president, from the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) said: "It is a great success that we have been able to win the bid for the EANS congress. For the UKE, this congress is an opportunity to demonstrate the strong and extensive expertise we have here."
