19th EURETINA Congress
Agenda Communications and Conference Services is Association Manager and Core PCO to The European Society of Retina Specialists (EURETINA). EURETINA was established in 1999 to promote the sharing of knowledge among European vitreoretinal and macula specialists. EURETINA aims to provide education on new diagnostic developments, advances in vitreoretinal surgery, the development and application of new drugs and procedures in the treatment of macular degeneration.
Agenda assumed management of EURETINA at their Congress in Lisbon, Portugal in 2006 which attracted 900 delegates. The brief Agenda accepted was to raise the profile of the Society and the Annual Congress and to increase membership especially among younger ophthalmologists.
EURETINA were delighted by the attendance at their 2019 Congress
- 5,781 Delegates

Coming up to the 20th Anniversary of the Society the Congress planned for Paris in 2019 was much expanded from 2007. The three-and-a-half-day scientific programme included Symposia updating delegates on all the latest developments in retinal surgery and technology along with instructional courses, a World Retina Day where other retina societies from around the world were responsible for the programme as well as a mini programme dedicated to young retina specialists.
Agenda ensured the Congress made full use of the technologies available to increase interaction between the delegates and the faculty including:
- Conference App
- Poster Villages
- Audience Response Systems
Sponsorship & Exhibition
Industry support for the EURETINA Congress has increased exponentially since 2007. In 2019 73 exhibitors brought a staff of 1,100 to create the largest Industry exhibition in the field of Retina.
Delegate surveys distributed after the Congress showed a 90% satisfaction rate for The Paris Conference and the Leadership of EURETINA expressed their gratitude to Agenda for their successful event.
