London is one of the great cities of the world. Visitors can enjoy London’s stunning historical architecture, world-renowned scientific and cultural museums (all of which are free to enter) and some of the most iconic landmarks in the world. London’s “West End” is famous for its shopping, food and above all its theatre scene. Alongside Broadway in New York, West End theatre represents the highest quality theatre in the world. The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden is home to The Royal Opera, as well as The Royal Ballet.
The congress venue is in the Docklands area of the city. ExCeL is an exhibitions and international convention centre in Custom House area of Canning Town, East London. It is located on a 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in London Docklands, between Canary Wharf and London City Airport. We have excellent conference facilities, a diverse range of accommodation and unrivalled international accessibility. London is also an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the UK and Europe.
We invite you to come and disseminate and assimilate knowledge, to share new ideas, meet new friends and old from all over the world and, above all, to celebrate our wonderful specialty that is Hand Surgery.
