Another Successful Congress Held at the St. Bernardin

The St. Bernardin was the venue of the 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food & Environmental Technologies.

The Congress took place at the Grand Hotel Bernardin Convention Centre from September 6th to 10th, 2015. It brought together scientists and users from different disciplines, possessing diverse expertise, who are involved in basic research or are developing applications based on electroporation and the use of pulsed electric fields of high intensity. The aim of the organisers was to create an environment stimulating interdisciplinary interactions, to present latest achievements and demonstrate current knowledge. Electroporation as a phenomenon at the cellular level can be used in medicine, biology, biotechnology, environmental problems. 400 participants from 42 countries from all continents were presenting and sharing their knowledge at the Congress.

Professor dr. Damijan Miklavcic, Chair of the COST TD1104 Action, Chair of the Department for Biomedical Engineering, Head of the Laboratory of Biocybernetics / University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, stated:

“The Convention Centre at Grand Hotel Bernardin and Bernardin Group Hotels offered great venue in which we were able to provide best possible atmosphere for active participants, their spouses, researchers and industrial partners to present their latest scientific achievements, either in a form of lectures, posters or exhibitors stands. Congress participants were able to meet and discuss during posters sessions and coffee breaks, lunches and social events. The layout and infrastructure (including information system, halls and wireless network) offered accommodation to all participants. Young investigators, students, professors and industrial professionals were able to choose between differently priced rooms in the close proximity. Hotel staff made us all feel very welcome and was willing to accommodate even our last minutes requests, was flexible and demonstrated highest possible professional behaviour. Even the smallest glitches were removed as soon as possible. Superb scenery, weather, clean water and superb food made the 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food & Environmental Technologies a memorable event not only for us – the organisers – but also for all the participants.”

EVENT: 1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food & Environmental Technologies
DATE: 6 to 10 September, 2015
LOCATION: Grand Hotel Bernardin / Convention Centre Bernardin
CLIENT: University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering
EXECUTION: Albatros Slovenia (PCO)
TYPE: World Congress

CHALLENGES
Delegates with different budget options and possibilities, intense programme with lots of parallel sessions (needs of breakout rooms – change in set-up), networking locations close to the main meeting room, on-spot communications and additional needs / changes

THE SOLUTION
The host’s solution are Bernardin Group’s credentials: 3 hotels under one roof, flexibly designed convention centre (integrated between 2 floors) that permits easy communication, networking spaces, exhibition space for sponsors and poster session, close proximity to Piran, daily short breefing – check with appointed staff.

AFTER THE EVENT
The event brought together scientists and users from different disciplines, possessing diverse expertise, who are involved in basic research or are developing applications based on electroporation and the use of pulsed electric fields of high intensity. 400 participants from 42 countries from all continents were presenting and sharing their knowledge at the Congress.
