The ESHG 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the first ESHG Conference which took place in Copenhagen in 1967. In commemoration of this event, we have chosen the Bella Center in Denmark’s capital as the venue for our next meeting.
The capital of Denmark is Northern Europe’s cosiest capital and packed with cafés, shops and the best restaurants in Scandinavia. From the winding streets of the beautiful old town and grand royal palaces to the city’s cutting-edge buildings and attractions, Copenhagen is the perfect blend of old world and new.
The city is also one of Europe’s oldest capitals with an exclusive royal touch – the monarchy in Denmark is the oldest in the world.
Because of the fascinating architecture, many parks, gourmet restaurants and other attractions Copenhagen is a very popular place to be. Copenhagen has been nominated the best city by several organizations for livability, sustainability and other factors.
Come and join us for a celebration of the 50th anniversary meeting of the ESHG (1967-2017) in a city that deserves being discovered outside of conference times.
