PRESENTATION OF NICE ACROPOLIS
A world-renowned complexThe Nice Acropolis Convention Centre includes the Acropolis Exhibition Centre, built in 1954, and the Acropolis Convention Centre, added in 1984. The convention and exhibition centre has hosted over 3,000 events drawing in more than 7 million people. The venue's appeal has won it numerous awards. The Acropolis Convention Centre was named « Europe's number one convention centre » for three years in a row !
Nice Acropolis, a partner for your eventAcropolis is a multi-purpose venue capable of hosting conferences, annual general meetings, symposiums, conventions, exhibitions, trade shows, seminars, receptions, galas, performing arts and sporting events and more. Its size, state-of-the art equipment and modular spaces make it one of the most versatile convention and exhibition sites in Europe.
Impressive visitor capacityNestled in the heart of downtown Nice, just 15 minutes from the airport, the Acropolis Convention and Exhibition complex offers you: 5 auditoriums with 250 to 2,500 seats, 50 meeting rooms with 20 to 800 seats and a 26,000 sqm exhibition hall. The facilities boast modular configurations that can be easily rearranged to suit the most demanding needs.
ECIO is now well established as an annual event, and the interest shown and the feedback received have demonstrated that the move to an annual format was a wise one. The field of interventional oncology is growing rapidly, and ECIO offers a structured space in which practitioners can stay abreast of the latest developments and learn new techniques.
Oncology is a field that requires inter-disciplinary collaboration. Patients now benefit from a vast array of specialist knowledge, but this brings its own challenges, and ECIO is striving to ensure its educational programme reflects and supports a collaborative approach. This includes working with diverse partner societies on a variety of joint sessions, and we are delighted that such sessions will again be offered.
The president of the Japanese Society of Interventional Radiology, which has been strongly focused on interventional oncology for many years, will be delivering this year’s Honorary Lecture. Dr. Yasuaki Arai, who has been at the forefront of the discipline in the Asia-Pacific, will be giving a speech entitled Beyond the evidence – the true goal of interventional oncology.
The meeting has grown over the years, and now encompasses a wide range of session formats, which cater to all styles of learning. The Video Learning Sessions, whose debut in 2014 was well received, will be featured again this year, addressing liver, kidney and lung cancer, as well as the important topic of pain management.
Clinical management is an essential pre-requisite for offering a robust interventional oncology service. To support inter-disciplinary collaborations and negotiations, a number of Multidisciplinary Tumour Boards will be held, discussing various liver and lung cancer cases.
Alongside a wide range of technical advances, ECIO 2015 will cover both established and experimental applications, such as musculoskeletal tumours, lung metastases, and thyroid, adrenal and prostate lesions.
The Mediterranean city of Nice offers an excellent location for the congress. Located within driving distance of Italy, Switzerland and Spain, the city’s fame as a beauty spot also translates into a multitude of flight connections.
We look forward to welcoming you to Nice!
