Congress: June 20 – 24, 2017

Industrial Exhibition: June 22 – 23, 2017

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the CARS 2017 Congress and Exhibition which will take place in Barcelona, Spain. The emphasis on clinical-oriented sessions, hands-on-workshops and vendor symposia for radiologists, surgeons and engineers makes CARS a unique place to exhibit and network. In addition to the exhibition itself, there are several opportunities to support key parts of the congress program and the possibility to participate in industry focused activities aligned to selected main sessions.

For CARS 2017 in Barcelona, five major organizations have decided to hold their annual conferences again integrated into one large international event and hence present a unique opportunity for your company to interact with world-renowned professionals at the leading edge of research and development in computer assisted radiology and surgery:

On behalf of these organizations, I should like to invite you to participate in the CARS 2017 Exhibition, the Congress and the scientific/medical sessions. The exhibition takes place on June 22 - 23, 2017 at the NH Constanza in Barcelona, which offers a very attractive position for the exhibition area. Barcelona, as one of the leading cities for medical conferences and a Mediterranean city with a very special flair, is an ideal venue to attract participants from all over the world and we expect approximately 800-1000 attendees. We recommend an early booking as the exhibition space is limited and places are assigned on a first-come first-served basis.
