A welcome from ESA President Dr Zeev Goldik

On behalf of the ESA Board and Secretariat, I warmly welcome you to this year’s Euroanaesthesia Congress in Geneva.

This year’s programme has a fantastic range of symposia, lectures, debates, meet the expert sessions, refresher courses and workshops, exploring every corner of our speciality. Download the congress app ESA 2017 to help you organise your time here at the congress.

This dynamic city is not only Switzerland’s capital, but also one of Europe’s major financial centres and home to many international organisations, many with a focus on health including the World Health Organization and the Red Cross.

Should you have time, please do try and see some of the city.

Please join us for this morning’s opening ceremony at 8.45H in Room B, and also tonight for the drinks reception at 18:30H in the Exhibition Hall.

I wish you all a happy and productive meeting, and hope to meet as many of you as possible across the three days of the congress.

Dr Zeev Goldik

ESA President
