Report EADV 2022 – Milan
From 7 to 10 September 2022, the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) conference was again organized in Milan. The number of participants was 14,000 from over 120 countries around the world and 600+ speakers in 170 different sessions.
Our organization had a stand together with Naevus Global during this conference. For example, we developed the parent support guide together with Naevus Global.
The organization had decided that patient organizations would have a time slot in a corner of a very large hall in the basement of the conference center. First of all, the space was very limited (about half a square meter to put down our material, but the basement location was visible from the higher layers, but was absolutely not on the route from the participants to the halls. We have this was also lodged as a complaint with a Dutch member of the EADV board.
Fortunately, participants were able to find us. We have been visited by various doctors from Egypt, Georgia and India, among others.

Given previous experience during conferences with our ‘parent support guides’ leaflets, we had brought extra copies and prepared a sign-up list in case the leaflets ran out so that people could reorder. After more than a day, the number of folders was almost gone.
There is now also a separate form on our website with which all kinds of information material can be requested.
