What a memorable conference week #ICRS2022 with many inspiring talks, discussions and workshops! The University of Bremen, supported by the Bremen Convention Bureau (BCB), organized the 15th ICRS, the International Coral Reef Symposium 2022.
The conference was was held in a European country for the first time ever and brought together leading scientists, early career researchers, conservationists, ocean experts, policy makers, managers and the public. In total a number of 1.100 participants from 80 countries engaged in the symposium onsite and 300 online. We are happy to announce that it was a full success and wish all the best for the next #ICRS2026 in New Zealand.
We had such a good time showing our beautiful city and possibilities for events and conventions to event planners after the IMEX 2022. We presented various hotels, locations and incentive ideas – thanks to all our partners for being a part of it. The FAM-Trip took place in cooperation with the German Convention Bureau.
After 2 years of Corona-related break, we were finally allowed to support our client, the M3B GmbH, again in the implementation of the presence event.
The BCB took over the participant management as well as the hotel arrangement for the 3.000 participants, exhibitors and speakers.
In cooperation with our congress and conference software (CVS), we digitized the badge print and certification in a contactless and secure way for the first time. Name badges were only printed on site and certificates were sent by e-mail. This saves us a lot of paper and protects the environment.
We are already looking forward to the next Wund- und Pflegekongress (Wound and Care Congress) from 10.-12.05.2023 in Bremen!
