A description of the reasons that have motivated the host organization to bid and what benefits the host dermatological and venereological community would receive by hosting the SS at the proposed destination must be included (e.g. a brief overview/description of how the Symposium could leave a long lasting impact within the region and how the host organization could drive this impact). 




It is not possible to submit a bid for a congress location, these are chosen by the EADV based on the availability of congress centres large enough to hold such an event.
