Meeting with local organizers preparing Porto Annual Meeting

Meeting with local organizers preparing Porto Annual Meeting
June 7, 2022

Just few days ago EAAP staff visited Porto facilities and met local organizers to be coordinated for the practical organization of next Annual Meeting. We received around 1400 abstracts, and we expect to have at least 1500 participants, almost the situation we had pre-COVID. The conference centre is an amazing building located in the city centre on the banks of River Duero. This magnificent site (Alfandega Conference Centre) received the “Business Destinations Travel Awards” for three years in the last ten as the Best Congress Centre in Europe.
Three parallel sessions will be streamed to make them fully hybrid. The locations of the social events are also perfect to make this meeting, not only the most important animal science event in Europe, but also to fully enjoy being together with friends and colleagues. A special note for the “Palacio da Bolsa”, an incredible building where the Gala Dinner will be organized. It is highly recommended to book the hotel in advance since Porto is a touristic city.
