European Wound Management Association (EWMA) returns to ExCeL in 2020

24 May 2018

The European Wound Management Association, in cooperation with the Tissue Viability Society (TVS), has announced their return to London in 2020.

The EWMA Conference will take place at ExCeL London, from the 13th to 15th May 2020, and is expected to welcome over 4,000 delegates from across Europe including nurses, doctors, as well as other medical professionals such as micro-biologists and psychologists. 

EWMA chose to return to ExCeL following its highly successful conference at the venue in 2015 and because of the highly respected practitioner and research community based in London. This is the latest of many medical associations such as European Association for Endoscopic Surgery, International Association for Dental Research and Diabetes UK, to select London and ExCeL as the host venue. 

Sue Bale, EWMA President, said: “We are delighted to be bringing our congress to London. The city offers everything an international conference attendee needs, including excellent transport connectivity, a wide range of hotels and great options for after hours. London is also renowned as a centre of medical excellence, with globally respected hospitals and universities. We look forward to working with ExCeL and London & Partners to create a truly memorable event for all our delegates in 2020.”

Tracy Halliwell, Director of Tourism, Conventions & Major Events at London & Partners, the official promotional agency and Convention Bureau for the city, said: “London is an international hub for medical research and academia, and we are proud to have been chosen once again to host the European Wound Management Association congress in 2020. The Association’s 2015 event was a great success, with a 17 per cent increase in delegates and participants from 77 countries, and we are looking forward to working with the team to deliver another stand-out congress in 2020.”

James Rees, Executive Director, ExCeL London, added: “We are delighted to have been selected again as the host venue for the EWMA Conference and to welcoming delegates to our International Convention Centre via the new Elizabeth line transport system. This multi-disciplinary medical conference is a significant event that will be supported by ExCeL’s location close to renowned research and medical facilities in London. We look forward to working with EWMA in the build-up to 2020, helping them to deliver a successful event for their delegates.”
