Opening ceremony and welcome reception

We look forward to having our esteemed participants join us for the 17th EAPD Congress opening ceremony, which will take place at the prestigious Gothia Towers Complex, starting at 18:30 CET. Following the opening ceremony, join us for our Congress welcome reception, held in collaboration with the City of Gothenburg and Region Västra Götaland.

Embracing the ethos of sustainability that defines Gothenburg as a city, we are looking forward to hosting the welcome reception of the 17th EAPD Congress as an alcohol-free event. In alignment with our dedication to environmental stewardship and promoting a healthy, inclusive environment, this decision underscores the Organisers’ commitment to mitigating any adverse effects on both our surroundings and the well-being of our participants.
