From 10 – 13 September 2023 Ljubljana welcomed 1,500 international participants from 63 countries attending the EUROTOX 2023. This marked the first time the Slovenian Society of Toxicology had the privilege of hosting a EUROTOX Congress, a triumph largely attributed to the exceptional leadership of Dr. Lucija Perharič, Chair of the Local Organizing Committee.
While Ljubljana was originally chosen to host the event in 2019 with a scheduled 2021 Congress, the global pandemic necessitated a postponement to 2023.
The success of EUROTOX 2023 can be attributed to the exceptional team effort led by the Professional Congress Organiser, K.I.T. Group GmbH from Dresden, who upheld the highest standards of experience, talent, professionalism, and passion. They created a remarkable success story alongside the GR-Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre team.
The GR-Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre itself proved to be an ideal venue for the congress, offering well-lit joined halls, 3,500 square meters of exhibition space adjacent to the plenary hall, and ample breakout rooms, totaling an impressive 12,000 square meters. With this layout, the congress achieved a record-breaking industry and poster exhibition, featuring 81 exhibitors and approximately 600 posters.
In summary, EUROTOX 2023 in Ljubljana was a testament to the power of international collaboration and sustainable event planning. With the support of dedicated professionals and a commitment to eco-friendly practices, this congress left a lasting impact on both its attendees and the beautiful city of Ljubljana.
