World Vaccine Congress Europe 2018

World Vaccine Congress Europe

The World Vaccine Congress Europe is the place to be for the latest news and developments in vaccine research – from antimicrobial resistance to delivery and manufacture.

The World Vaccine Congress Europe is back for its 19th annual event in October (29-31) after the fantastic line-up last year. We have continued to grow the congress with even more scientific scope, breadth and relevant content in immunotherapy, respiratory infections, emerging and neglected diseases, clinical trials, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and bacterial vaccines, new technology and bioprocessing, and delivery and manufacture.

And of course, our co-located 4th World Veterinary Vaccines Congress, and 3rd Immuno-Oncology Profiling World Congress are also back to complement your vaccine research.

What’s new in 2018?

Here’s five key reasons why you must join us on 29-31 October in sunny Lisbon, Portugal for World Vaccine Congress Europe:

  1. The strongest agenda yet is governed by our Scientific Advisory Board, which includes 20 leading pioneers of the vaccine industry that have ensured the agenda, topics and speakers are relevant and cutting edge, so that your three days with us will be the most memorable yet;
  2. More CEOs, CSOs and decision makers: Hear from over 170 senior speakers including Dr Gregory Poland, Mayo Clinic, Dr Annaliesa Anderson, Pfizer, and many more! We expect over 450 attendees.

  3. Seven tracks and two co-located conferences: Attend focused sessions across multiple tracks and two co-located congresses.
