We look forward to welcoming you to Florence and to the next European Glaucoma Society Congress in May 2018.
Each new EGS Congress builds on past successes: newly established standards, a varied and stimulating scientific programme and a wide range of instructional courses.
An extensive array of scientific posters, special interest groups and a vast exhibition add to the variety of this well-established scientific gathering, which has been able to attract trainees, general ophthalmologists and glaucomatologists alike. Our friendly, informal, multi-cultural environment encourages networking, sharing and exchange.
A unique location in the heart of Florence and a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, the Fortezza da Basso was designed by Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane and commissioned by Alessandro de’ Medici, the first Duke of Florence. It was built between 1534 and 1536 and has been the main Congress & Exhibition Centre venue in Florence and central Italy since 1967.
This venue combines perfectly restored historic locations, such as the Area Monumentale, the Teatrino Lorenese and the Polveriera, with modern pavilions such as the Spadolini Pavilion and the Cavaniglia Pavilion, opened in 1996, offering a truly unique panorama with 16th-century walls on one side of the architectural complex.
Florence, an open-air museum, is the ideal location to host the event. The upcoming 2018 edition promises to be another exciting meeting that you can't afford to miss. Your active participation will make it worthwhile.
Best wishes and see you soon!
Prof. David Garway-Heath
