The ESPGHAN 50th Annual Meeting will take place at Prague Congress Center. With beautiful panoramic views over the city, the Prague Congress Centre (PCC) is one of the most prominent landmarks of the Czech capital. The Prague Congress Centre ranks among the best-known congress venues in Europe with more than 50 halls, reception and meeting rooms with a total capacity of up to 9.300 people and 13.000 m2 of exhibition space.
The centre’s high technical standards and diverse options for arranging meeting spaces make the venue a prime choice for hosting exhibitions, social events, banquets, and cultural productions, as well as congresses and conferences.


Prague is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The hundred-spired pearl, the magic mother of towns. Its rare, well-maintained and mutually interlocked architecture of all styles depicts eleven centuries of medieval history. Just like the splendid stone bridge connects both banks of the river Vltava, Prague is the place where the Czechs, Germans and Jews had lived ever before; it is an intersection of Europe where tradesmen, politicians, scholars and artists from all over the world have met and still meet.
Prague is a modern European metropolis with all services and opportunities for entertainment, business and education and also offers boulevards with several shopping opprtunities, with excellent restaurants, stylish cafes, traditional beerhouses and folk pubs.
