Around 450 delegates from Europe, USA, Canada and Asia will gather at the Vascular Access Society congress (VAS) 2017 from 5th to 8th April 2017 in Ljubljana, at the CD Congress Centre Ljubljana.

This year marks the anniversary year, the 10th congress of the Vascular Access Society and without a doubt, the host and organizer will celebrate this special occasion with the best possible organization and the best conditions for further developments in this field.

VAS organizes an international congress every two years in a European country and every year at least one vascular access course. The previous congresses were held in Barcelona, Prague, Istanbul, Rome, Nice, etc.

The organizer chose Ljubljana as the 2017 destination based on the friendliness and charm of the Slovenian capital, a city of rich historical and cultural heritage and great location in between the main European capitals, the additional factor was value for money. The last named is no surprise, since the Slovenian congress industry has been growing actively, promoting the country and their venues with their remarkable professional services and providing some of best European congress services.


Choosing the CD Congress Centre Ljubljana as the congress venue is very clear – it is the largest congress centre in Slovenia in terms of auditorium-style seating and among the most established venues on the international conference market. This is also supported by the CD Congress Centre Ljubljana team which recently announced some great successes in bidding for many congresses in the years to come. And the location of the congress centre is extraordinary.

Just a step away from the Ljubljana city centre with numerous bars on the shore of the Ljubljanica River, the “Open kitchen” event every Friday at the city market and many hotels nearby. An ideal location for congress guests who will enjoy strolling through the city after the exhausting and interactive programme of VAS 2017.

Ljubljana, the charming city and CD Congress Ljubljana is definitely a winning formula for this special 10th edition of VAS Congress. The participants will doubtlessly enjoy exploring the inviting and invigorating spring in Ljubljana.
