On behalf of the conference committee I wish to warmly thank you all for making the Dutch North Sea Emergency Medicine Conference 2019 a great success.
Thanks to all the international and national precourse and workshop providers and the speakers that prepared spectacular presentations. You kept the audience attention and participation until the very end of the congress.
We are proud to have welcomed so many attendees this year. Thank you for your input for our aftermovie and for bringing such hilarious gadgets to the party. Without you it wouldn’t have been such a great conference!
I would like to thank all the participants who presented their research results in the oral abstracts sessions and by their posters. Therefore also many thanks to the Scientific Committee which made sure everything was smoothly organised in the abstract sessions and for the poster presentations. With the help of the votes of the audience they professionally selected the best of three abstracts on friday morning. Congratulations to the winner of the best-abstract award: Manchu Mahajan!
Also many thanksto the sponsors that have supported our congress and the DSEP board to facilitate the NVSHA awards. We would like to congratulate ‘Fellowship Netwerk’ as winner of the best initiative and Titus Schonberger for his honorable mention.
This year we further improved our conference app and I would like to thank everybody who downloaded the app and have put all the inspirational and important messages gathered by the presentations, on the social networks, in particular on Twitter #DEMC19.
Finally I wish to thank Hotel Zuiderduin for their hospitality and excellent catering. And of course Nautilus aan Zee for having us again for a great BBQ and an epic party. Many thanks to our conference bureau Interactie for all the great work done not only during the conference but also for their preparations. We all together succeeded in building up a sparkling event, with appreciated pre-courses, interactive sessions, great scientific value, wonderful organization and a lot of fun.
The organization of DEMC2020 will start in september. We hope that all of you and many of your friends and colleagues will be with us for another unforgettable event. Save the date 3, 4 and 5th of June 2020!
We look forward meeting you again in Egmond aan Zee!
