What should have been an exciting event and congress year for the city of Amsterdam, with big events like SAIL2020 and UEFA2020, turned out to be a silent year for the whole world. The Amsterdam CVB was very excited to support the following 3 LSH congresses that were supposed to be held in 2020 and now go virtual for this year:


ESC Congress is the world’s largest gathering of cardiovascular professionals and focuses on the latest clinical trials and breakthrough discoveries in the field. It brings together more than 30,000 medical healthcare professionals from more than 120 countries, with seminars, talks and presentations on how to advance cardiovascular medicine and help people lead longer, healthier lives.

The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference was set to take place in Amsterdam in July, welcoming 7,000 delegates to the city. The Alzheimer Center Amsterdam was also very keen to welcoming all guests for the AAIC congress.


The European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress is world’s most comprehensive European Hematology event of the year. In 2019 the 24th EHA Annual meeting was organized at RAI Amsterdam. More than 11.000 hematology professionals and hundreds of exhibitors were present. To give them a warm welcome we created an welcome video at Schiphol Airport and placed our iconic I amsterdam 3D letters in front of the conference centre RAI Amsterdam. Besides this we created also a campaign with outdoor advertising panels in and around the city. This to engage the residents of Amsterdam and to welcome the visitors of the conference. 

IBC 2019 

The International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) is the world's most influential media, entertainment and technology show. Since 1992, RAI Amsterdam has been welcoming this prestigious event every September, which attracts around 55,000 visitors a year from more than 170 countries. Companies from all over the world come together annually at RAI Amsterdam to showcase their innovative products to a wide audience.
