EACS wins the Best International Congress 2013 Award

On March 27th, the Brussels tourism office held one of its major events, the Visit Brussels Awards. We are proud to announce that the 14th European AIDS Conference won the International Congress 2013 Award! It is the first time that a host city rewards EACS for its conference. Of course, it could not have such a successful conference without our partners, sponsors and KIT who worked hand-in-hand with us.
