The International Conference on Progress in Surgery was held in Linz again in 2015 Surgery combined with Blue Meeting®

From 18 to 20 November 2015, the focus of Ars Electronica Center in Linz was modern surgery. The Department of General and Abdominal Surgery at Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Schwestern Linz under the leadership of Prim. Dr. Klaus Emmanuel brought together 150 top international experts in Linz.

The meeting was dedicated to the latest specialist trends in surgery of the upper digestive tract and presented pioneering surgical procedures. Eight operations were broadcast live from the hospital to Ars Electronica Center, with comments from experts

Blue Meeting® enabled us to place the emphasis on the participants’ requirements even more strongly: Many of the conference participants used the breaks to enjoy the wonderful view from the colourful Linz loungers. This was made possible by Linz Tourismus, who supported us from the earliest planning stage with tips and ideas, relieving rigid programmes with Linz stimuli.

The reward was a very positive response. Thank you very much for all the support!
