We are excited to support the well-being of our delegates by bringing back ECCMID Yoga breaks for the first time since 2019 in Amsterdam.
Start the morning off right with some meditation and exercise, with our "Good Morning World" - yoga & meditation session, each morning from 7:30-8:00 CEST. Or take a break from the sessions and the exhibition over lunch and join in the "boost up your energy: 45' yoga session". This session is held every congress day from 12:15-13:00 CEST.
On top of that, we also offer an "Afternoon Refresh: 30’ Yoga & Stretching" session – each day from Saturday to Monday between 15:45 and 16:15 CEST.
Places are limited, and pre-bookings will be available in March 2024.
The ECCMID Play-Corner
Since 2021 ECCMID has been offering the Escape Room. In the first year it was purely online, due to the fact that the Congress could not take place onsite. In 2022 we had our first "real" onsite Escape Room with great success, selling out quickly into the Congress. After this success, we repeated the format in 2023 with a new story and expanded it into two rooms to play in, to offer more delegates the opportunity to participate.
For 2024 we’re bringing back this format in an even bigger setting. A brand new case is to be solved, and we will offer three rooms, so more teams than ever can play and compete for the best time.
In addition to this, we are building an entire game-corner, where scientists from around the world can present their own games that they have developed.
Applications for a free spot to present your work will be open in October 2023.
ECCMID Art Gallery
ESCMID truly appreciates the creativity of our community. Because of that we will have a call again for your artwork in December 2023.
For the ECCMID 2024 Art Gallery we are calling for artwork under the header of ONE HEALTH, and we encourage you all to participate and submit. Prizes will be given away, including a free registration to ECCMID for the winner of the art call. Use this summer and fall to be creative and submit your work from 1 – 31 December 2023 to be included in the online art-book or even onsite on a canvas in our Art Gallery.
Photobooth in the ECCMID Exhibition (Pavilion 7)
Did you enjoy taking your group picture with our props in the scenic harbour setting at ECCMID 2023 in Copenhagen? Or did you unfortunately miss the opportunity?
No worries, the Photobooth will be back in 2024. Jump into the role of a Sagrada Familia worker and help to finish the cathedral.
Pictures will be printed for you onsite. And new this year: pictures can be emailed to you. Don’t miss the opportunity to create memories forever with your friends, colleagues and new acquaintances.
Personalize your congress bags!
At ESCMID we are always seeking for ways to make the Congress more sustainable. In 2023 we offered the opportunity to personalize your congress bag with our 2023 patches. So, bring back your bag for 2024 and attach the Barcelona Patch!
