The Convention Centre, designed by prestigious Spanish architect José Luis Mateo, forms part of the new technological and business district in one of the city’s best developed urban areas, with a communications and transport network connecting it to the dynamic city of Barcelona. Modern installations and architectural beauty make CCIB truly unique as one of the largest convention centres in Southern Europe.

Barcelona is not only internationally renowned for its food, culture and hospitality, but is also home to some of the most eminent hepatologists in Europe. Hence, we welcome you to join us in Spain for the most important event in the European Hepatology calendar.

Even in this age of electronic communication, teleconferencing and social networking there is still the need for a major medical congress where medical experts are willing to share their expertise, teaching skills and latest research results with peers. Your presence at the International Liver Congress™ will be a truly worthwhile experience. Undoubtedly, the success of the International Liver Congress™ is due to the enthusiasm and generosity of the scientists and clinicians who attend. We therefore encourage you to participate and contribute to the success of EASL; save the dates in your diary today!
