A chance to relax and explore
The Congress runs from the afternoon of Thursday, 7 October, and runs through to Saturday, 9 October, leaving Sunday free to explore the baroque palaces, gardens and fortifications of Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The weather in October is typically warm, so you can kick back, sip a Kinnie (the national drink of Malta), and enjoy the tranquillity and hospitality of this wonderful island.
Booking for the EAS Congress is now and all the registrations for the postponed March 2020 and March 2021 Congresses have been carried forward to October 2021. There are dentist and staff packages available. The Congress has partnered with Air Malta to ensure that reasonable travel rates are available for members and has negotiated special reduced accommodation rates with Hilton Malta.
