Dear all,
By way of this email we hope to show you why you really shouldn’t miss the opportunity to attend the 2020 Congress of the European Rhinologic Society in collaboration with ISIAN and IRS, which will be held on 21-25 June 2020 in Thessaloniki.

Those of you who have attended our previous Congresses know that you can expect a high-quality experience in terms of scientific content esthetics of infrastructure and a social program of the highest standards.

One of the main enticements of the upcoming congress will be the venue itself. ERS 2020 will take place in the ancient Greek city of Thessaloniki, named after the sister of Alexander the Great. With its 23 centuries of history, Thessaloniki can justifiably be known as an ancient city.  Thessaloniki’s legendary past and its unique mix of cultures shape a lively present.

Be there

Do not miss the unique opportunity to attend the upcoming
ERS 2020 Congress and explore the radiant city of Thessaloniki!

History of Thessaloniki

In the city’s Roman period a great number of magnificent monuments were built which we can still admire today, such as the Rotunda, the Galerius Arch (Kamara) and the Ancient Forum (Agora). As part of the Byzantium Empire, Thessaloniki became a co-reigning city, and in the thousand year-old churches you will still hear the same hymns and psalms of this period. During the Ottoman era, Thessaloniki thrived as an economic centre, with new housing and fortifications built – among them the White Tower, the most famous landmark in Thessaloniki.

Thessaloniki today

Today, thanks to a strong student community and teams of young creatives, the city keeps a fresh spirit. New ideas are visible all around. Thessaloniki’s waterfront with the modern symbol of the city, the “flying umbrellas”, has become one of the city’s most popular sites.

The Venue

The venue for ERS 2020 is the modern complex of the Thessaloniki Concert Hall, situated at one end of the new waterfront. The Thessaloniki Concert Hall carries the name of a radiant city and adorns it with a unique edifice. Since its inception in 2000, it has hosted numerous successful productions, ranging from music concerts and operas to opening ceremonies and international conventions. Moreover, there is a broad range of accommodation at all price levels at the waterfront and in walking distance from the congress centre.
