Nominations for hosting the ESCAP Congress 2027

Every two years the members have the opportunity to vote for the society that will host a future ESCAP Congress. The next congresses will be held in Maastricht in 2022 (note the postponement of the date due to COVID-19), Copenhagen in 2023, and Strasbourg in 2025. 

Preparation of congresses can start up to 3 years before the actual date, thus forward planning, especially due the unprecedented times, is essential. The country, the city and the venue should be attractive for a wide audience and suitable for the purpose of a large conference.
