ESC Professional Members' Lounge

ESC Congress 2019


A place to relax and exchange ideas 

One of the many benefits of being an ESC Professional Member is your privileged access to the Members’ Lounge.

The Professional Members’ Lounge is the ideal place to relax and catch up with colleagues and peers. Open for the duration of the ESC Congress, it’s organised purely around your needs.

Not a Professional Member yet?

Then now is the time to upgrade! And if you register for ESC Congress before 31 July you can save €150 on the onsite registration fee – that’s more than the ESC Professional Membership fee itself. You can also get your badge delivered to your postal address for peace of mind, if you register before 30 June. That means no queueing to get into Congress. Why wouldn’t you take advantage?

Opening hours

  • Saturday 31 August - Tuesday 3 September 08:00-19:00
  • Wednesday 4 September: 08:00-13:00

What you can expect inside the Lounge

Free printed copy of the latest 2019 ESC Pocket Guidelines

Be the first to get your hands on the latest Guidelines – and avoid the queues to pick yours up – they are FREE as part of your ESC Professional Membership. Available exclusively in the Lounge from Saturday 09:00. Don’t miss out!

Networking events

Dedicated networking events for ESC Professional Members take place throughout the Congress and focus on career development.

Young Community events

If you’re under 40, the ESC has a special programme tailored around your career development needs. Come along and take advantage of activities such as:

  • Speed Mentoring
  • Virtual Cases area
  • Young Networking events

Complimentary refreshments during Congress

If you need a tea, coffee or just a break, the Lounge is the place to head for!

Come and sit down with colleagues to discuss the latest presentation or just rest for 5 minutes…

Business facilities

Enjoy free access to computers and printers to check your emails, review incoming presentations on ESC 365 (thanks to your ESC Professional Membership) and keep up to date on ESC events and activities.

Professional Photographer available: look your best!

Need a profile photo for your publications, ESC Member Directory entry or for your online professional networking? Come and get a free portrait in the Lounge – all included in your Professional Membership benefits. It’s first come, first served, and the Photographer is available as follows:

  • Saturday 31 August - Tuesday 3 September 08:00-19:00
  • Wednesday 4 September: 08:00-13:00
