Below you will find a summary of some of our projects of the past
Roche Diagnostics Symposia
We regularly organize symposia on behalf of Roche Diagnostics. Roche wants to use this to provide insight into new developments. For example, we organized the Cardiac Biomarker symposium 2019 and the Roche Oncology Update symposium 2019 and 2020.
The Roche Oncology Update symposium is especially intended to give pulmonologists, oncologists, pathologists and molecular biologists an overview of new developments and biomarkers for immune and targeted therapy in oncology.
Roche Biomarker symposium concerns the medical added value of biomarkers in daily practice. Thematic high-quality presentations are given on the latest innovations and developments in the field of cardiac biomarkers.
The ESC Congress (European Society of Cardiology) will be held each year in a different European country. More than 30.000 cardiologists come together to attend this congress, including a large number of Dutch cardiologists.
Escpecially when the ESC Congress take place in Amsterdam, it is a great opportunity for Roijé Congressen to arrange several projects from our office in the city centre. For example, we contributed to the NVVC Concert, for and by cardiologists in the great Concert Hall.
‘Challenges’ for a good aim have also been organised in the past. Cardiologists run from Utrecht to Paris and Munich or a Beachvolley Tournament in Barcelona.
For the Netherlands Society of Cardiology togheter with the Working group on Cardiovascular research the Netherlands, Roijé Congressen organise their yearly cocktail during this congress as well.
Amsterdam UMC Heart Center referral symposium
Commissioned by the Amsterdam UMC, we organized the Amsterdam UMC Heart Centers Referrals Symposium in 2018: 60 years of Cardiology in Amsterdam. This symposium took place in the Beurs van Berlage. Via an online ‘selection menu’, participants could determine in advance which subjects were discussed.
In 2019, we organized the Amsterdam UMC Heart Center referrers symposium for the second year in a row. This year the symposium took place in the Compagnietheater in Amsterdam. During the morning program, new developments in cardiology and cardiac surgery were discussed and in the afternoon a “College Tour” was offered.
Hans Boter symposia
On Friday, October 14, 2011, on the occasion of the farewell of Hans Boter as a board member of the VZI, a symposium took place on the topic “New Developments Imaging Equipment”. During this symposium, it was announced that the VZI had created a foundation named “Stichting Hans Boter Symposia” as a tribute to Hans Boter with the intention of organizing a symposium every 2 years on new developments in medical technology.
Roijé Congressen was asked in 2019 as a conference partner of the VZI to co-organize the now 5th and last Hans Boter Symposium.
WIBAZ anniversary congress
The WIBAZ Working Group aims to exchange knowledge between the instrumental services of the Erasmus mc, LUMC, AMC, VUMC, UMCG, UMCUtrecht, Radboudumc and the AZM. Since mid-1971 technicians from the Academical Hospitals work together in the Working Group Instrumentation Management of Academical Hospitals to bring instruments management to a new level.
Thanks to the pooling of collective knowledge and energy has the WIBAZ an important position as conversation and sparring partner for Government, standard commissions, umbrella organisations, industry and other partners in the health care. The Working Group WIBAZ has two areas of focus; clinical and laboratories. In addition the service heads have their own meetings.
In 2016 WIBAZ organised with the support of Roijé Congressen their anniversary congress. This congress is realized in close cooperation with the VZI, NVKF and BMTZ.
ENOC Conference 2015
The European Network of Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC) is a not-for-profit association of independent children’s rights institutions (ICRIs). Its mandate is to facilitate the promotion and protection of the rights of children, as formulated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The international ENOC Conference and General Assembly is a yearly event. In 2015 the Dutch Ombudsman for Children (De Kinderombudsman) was the host institution of the conference.
Roijé Congressen had the honour to work together with the Dutch Ombudsman for Children to make it an excellent event. The 2-day conference took place in the ‘Rode Hoed’ in Amsterdam, the General Assembly in the great Hall of the House of Representatives in the Hague.
SCAPR General Assembly 2014
From 13 until 16 May 2014 the SCAPR General Assembly has taken place in Amsterdam. This international meeting, organised by Sena and NORMA (companies about rights and interests for artists, producers, musicians and actors), took place in the beautiful St. Olofkapel from NH Hotel Barbizon Palace. In the Beurs van Berlage people were surprised with a spectacular performance of Giovanca and her band. This was a very nice change in addition to our medical conferences now to work with the music industry.
48th Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society for Clinical Investigation
From 30 April untill 3 May 2014 the 48th Annual Scientific Meeting of ESCI has taken place in the Academiegebouw at the Domplein in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Fifth European meeting on Adult Congenital Heart Disease
On 10 and 11 april 2014 the Fifth European meeting on Adult Congenital Heart Disease has taken place in Amsterdam. The congress venue was the beautiful West-Indisch House on the Herenmarkt.
More than 150 participants with 22 different nationalities attended the meeting. Participants were cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, children’s cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons.
Roijé Congressen organises satellite symposiums for various companies, several times a year. This is often a program of an hour during the NVVC congress or the congress for Internists (NIV) for example. Mostly this will be a lunch or dinner symposium.
We provide that the program is ready in time, confirm speakers and have conference calls with all the parties involved. The coordination, printing and decoration/equipment on location as well as the accreditation request, recording and processing the associated participants afterwards belong to our Organisation.
