Congrès Médecine nucléaire Luxembourg 136

French-Belgian-Luxembourgish joint Congress of Nuclear Medicine at new conference centre Kirchberg

Luxembourg nuclear medicine specialist Dr. Claudine Als, President of the French-Belgian-Luxembourgish Joint Congress of Nuclear Medicine 2011, says a number of factors were significant in the decision of the organising committee to chose Luxembourg to host the event. The organisers were looking for a location to host a significant conference that could also offer the 800+ participants the opportunity to meet and network in a professional environment. Luxembourg offers a wide range of facilities and the Luxembourg Convention Bureau (LCB) is equipped to meet the requirements of event planners. Furthermore, the capital is centrally located in Europe, it is easy to reach by air, train and car. The committee was quickly convinced that the New Conference Centre NCCK in the Place de l’Europe would provide the required infrastructure. The spacious conference room and exhibition area were deemed highly suitable.


“The NCCK is not only state of-the-art from a technical point of view, but also offers a luminous and impressive modern architecture. It is readily accessible for all participants and several international hotels within walking distance provide high quality accommodation,” says Dr. Als.

Simultaneous French-English translation by experienced interpreters contributed to the success of the meeting.


“Nothing is more easy in one of the three capitals of the European Union,” says Als.

The adjacent Philharmonie was chosen to host the official opening ceremony and gala evening.

“Support from LCB was very important during the whole planning process. LCB helped to prepare the initial digital presentation as well as an inspection trip and advised us about possible strategic concerns. They pointed out the venues that best suited our needs. They followed up with everyone we wanted to get in touch with. Hotel accommodation was totally managed by LCB. All these arrangements provided obvious advantages for our association. We were thus able to concentrate on the scientific and professional aspect of the conference. We warmly recommend LCB to any conference planner in Luxembourg.”
