Thoratec Symposium Conference in Prague
Thoratec Europe Ltd. called on venuesworld.com™ to organise their inaugural European Symposium. Bringing this event to Europe from the US for the first time was a huge undertaking for the team, and also made all the more challenging by a short 5 month lead time. After looking at a number of locations, they decided to hold their conference in Prague, Czech Republic.
The local venuesczechrepublic.com™ team quickly identified suitable conference venues across Europe, and Thoratec decided to hold the conference at the InterContinental Hotel in Prague. Once the conference venue confirmed, the team focused on sourcing a memorable venue for the Gala Dinner at the convent of St. Agnes, situated on the right bank of Vltava in Prague’s Old Town. This historic former church was the perfect venue for the Gala Dinner.
Challenges & Solutions
2 days prior to the event taking place, Eyjafjallajökull, in Iceland, erupted sending plumes of volcanic ash into the atmosphere. As the volcanic ash cloud descended, air travel right across Europe was disrupted. Utilising extensive experience in the events industry, the venuesczechrepublic.com™ team were able to launch the emergency plan that they had prepared. This minimised any direct impact on the event. The Inaugural European Thoratec Symposium was a resounding success and set a very high standard for future events.
