Congress information

From Thursday 30 to Friday 31 May 2024 The Booy Foundation organizes the ‘Grand Final’ congress of the European Begg Society of Orthodontists (EBSO) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands: ORTHO-AMSTERDAM 2024!

Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. Known as the ‘Venice of the North’ for its 165 canals, the city’s most famous sight is its well-preserved and appealing 17th-century architecture. You can enjoy the winding canals, idyllic bridges, and historic buildings. Amsterdam also offers an extreme variety of shops, markets, and the famous red light district.

16 (!) international top speakers will present the latest advancements in practical orthodontics. In addition, the Begg Prize (€ 2500) will be awarded for the first time to the best scientific research that benefits daily orthodontic practice. The special attractiveness of the congress is its clinical character, a relaxed atmosphere, and sufficient time for presentations and discussions. Just take a look at the program. It’s really fantastic!

Heineken Experience

The congress will take place in the Heineken Experience, the historic very first Heineken brewery in the centre of Amsterdam. The venue is located close to the Museum Square with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum. Numerous well-known museums are also within walking distance. Just behind the Heineken Experience many terraces, cafés, and restaurants are located.

The old brewery has been transformed to an interactive museum. It is a popular tourist attraction and congress location. The historic venue is easily accessible by car, public transport, canal boat, and by bike.

The congress dinner is in The National Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaartmuseum), a unique monumental building, dating from 1656. And you also will enjoy the majesty of Amsterdam’s famous canal ways on a boat cruise with drinks and appetizers.
