Another success in the convention market in Turin. The city has infact been appointed to host the ESTRO Convention, European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology, which will be held from the 29th April to the 3rd May 2016. The winning candidature has been presented by Turismo Torino e Provincia Convention Bureau with the support of the City of Turin. The success was obtained thanks to the excellent team work with GL Events (the company that manages Lingotto Fiere and Oval) and with the Centro Congressi Lingotto, which showed competitiveness and satisfied the technical and logistic requirements of ESTRO, which visited Torino several times.

As Piero Fassino, the Mayor of Turin,  emphasized, "With the achievement of this candidature, Turin confirms its vocation as a city equipped to host convention activities; after hosting the 45th National Convention of the Italian Society of Radiology Medicine (SIRM) in 2012, with over 6,000 participants, the ESTRO Congress represents a new important moment for the study and exchange at very high scientific levels in the Radiotherapy and Oncology deparment."

In preparation of the 2016 appointment, which could bring to the city 5,500 delegates, ESTRO has planned an informative path, characterised by the organisation of numerous events in Turin, among which a "Strategy Review Meeting"  next June (identification of the strategic course addressed by ESTRO, by the 25 people with leadership positions within the Society), and three educational courses by ESTRO School to be held in the years preceeding the convention. 

Maurizio Montagnese, President of Turismo Torino e Provincia, adds: "Obtaining this Convention is extremely important from the touristic and economic point of view in that it is esteemed to have approximately a 10 million Euro economic effect, and about 20 thousand overnight stays; convention tourism is a fundamental resource for our territory in that it has the capacity of contributing to the reinforcement of the image of the City and its strategic positioning among other metropolis, attracting the esteemed demand of professionals and opinion leaders."
