The scientific conference of the Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis Research (Gesellschaft für Thrombose- und Hämostaseforschung e.V., GTH), was held at the locations of Messe Frankfurt in February 2023. With the 67th Annual Meeting of the GTH, Frankfurt was once again the venue for the event after 25 years. Around 1,500 participants, mainly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, came to the Rhine-Main metropolis.
Assemblies, symposia, workshops and meetings were held on all levels in the Congress Center Messe Frankfurt. The large Harmonie hall was divided into two plenary halls and was the heart of the event. It offers direct access to the new, divisible Hall 5, where the 3.000 m² industrial exhibition for the GTH Conference was housed. The specialist events were complemented by the poster exhibition with over 80 posters
Exciting location for the evening programme just around the corner
A highlight was the networking programme, which took place at the Senckenberg Natural History Museum, one of the largest and most important natural history museums in Europe and within walking distance of the Congress Center.
Congress President Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Erhard Seifried, Medical Director of the Institute for Transfusion Medicine and Immunohaematology in Frankfurt am Main said: “We are delighted with the possibilities the Congress Center and Hall 5 offer for a congress. Our needs for spacious conference rooms, break-outs and a directly accessible exhibition area were well met here in the modern, well-engineered locations of Messe Frankfurt”.
Frankfurt Congress Ambassadors
Professor Seifried is also a dedicated Frankfurt Congress Ambassador.The Congress Ambassador initiative was launched by the Frankfurt Convention Bureau, Messe Frankfurt and the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce. The congress ambassadors are people in executive positions who have already gained experience as congress presidents or congress organisers in Frankfurt am Main. Within the initiative, they are available to future congress planners in Frankfurt as contact persons and advisors with a different perspective. With this network, the initiative wants to strengthen Frankfurt am Main as a congress destination and offer new organisers an up-to-date network.
