What was your event like?
The Kuopio Alzheimer Symposium has been organised since 1999. The symposium has a stellar reputation as a scientific event with a rich program and internationally acknowledged speakers. This year, the Nordic Memory Clinic Conference also coincided with the symposium.
The event focused on health sciences and existing and emerging concepts in neurodegeneration and genetic and personalised medicine in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. We had more than 300 participants in person and around 50 more online.
With events such as this, the catering means a great deal for the overall experience. We also wanted to introduce regional flavours to honour Kuopio’s nomination as the European Region of Gastronomy for 2020–2021.
Based on the feedback, our participants appreciated the top-tier program and our functional and comfortable congress venue, the Kuopio Music Centre. We managed to create an event that was big enough but still had an intimate atmosphere without any practical issues. In addition to the scientific programme, there were social activities and an opportunity to see the Kuopio region from a traveller’s perspective.
