General Information A-Z


Badges

All participants and exhibitors are required to wear their badges throughout the congress. Access to the scientific sessions will only be possible with your personal name badge. We charge EUR 100 for replacement of a lost badge. For any name change, we charge a fee of EUR 50.

Bank/ATM

Banks are open to the public public between 8:00 – 10:00 AM and 15:30 – 17:30 PM. Visa and Mastercard are the most common accepted cards. American express and Diner’s Club are also accepted although not as common. Take care in regards to the cards you use, as those without a chip and only contain a magnetic strip, are less likely to be accepted.

Cameras and Recordings

Electronic recording or excessive photography of presentation slides is prohibited in all lecture halls during all sessions.

Certificates

Certificates of attendance (not including CME credits) are available from Sunday morning, April 16th 2023. They can be printed at the print stations in the registration area, using the barcode on your name badge. CME Certificates will be emailed to participants following the congress.

Child Care

Children are not allowed inside the venue grounds. For childcare services, please contact: info[at]escmid.org


Climate

April is a great month to visit Copenhagen if you love spring weather and do not like tourist crowds. However, its weather can be a little unpredictable. A warm spring with up to 20 °C is entirely possible as is a sudden cold snap. An advantage of visiting in April is that it’s relatively dry with only about 30 mm of rainfall in the month. Though spring usually brings bright sunlight and cloudless skies with four to six hours of sunshine per day from March to May. With mild temperatures and reasonable hotel prices, April in Copenhagen is indeed very pleasant.
