They support the highly important exchange of views and expertise between scientists and physicians all over the world, driving scientific progress and knowledge transfer, both locally and internationally. It is precisely this kind of international collaboration that enables science and research to deliver solutions to today’s challenges.” Michael Otremba, Managing Director of Hamburg Tourist Board, pointed out: "Hamburg specifically applied for this congress, as we are hoping for a transfer of knowledge in the field of allergology for the relevant experts from the region and for Germany, in addition to the economic effects. The fact that we are now able to host this congress shows that Hamburg is positioning itself very clearly and positively in competition with other important metropolises in the conference and congress sector."
