Welcome Words


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to be able to invite you to EuroPerio8, London 2015.

The EuroPerio Congress has established itself as the world’s leading conference in periodontology and implant dentistry, and has become the essential triennial fixture on the meetings calendar. It is an honour and a delight to be able to bring this meeting to London, to be hosted by the British Society of Periodontology for the European Federation of Periodontology.

The notable success of previous EuroPerio Congresses is striking, from their relatively modest beginnings in 1994, to the great clinical and scientific success of EuroPerio7 in Vienna 2012, which attracted more than 7800 registered participants. Taking into account the feedback from Vienna and previous EuroPerio conferences we are planning for EuroPerio8 to be the best and biggest EuroPerio to date!

We have put together a really impressive program with a whole array of top international speakers.  Up to 6 sessions will run in parallel throughout the meeting with programs aimed at specialists in periodontology and implantology, general dentists, dental hygienists and dental care professionals, and academics.  A major feature of the programme will be clinical masterclass presentations and specialist fora.

Our venue for EuroPerio 8 is ExCeL London, one of the finest congress venues in Europe and a most impressive sight. It is situated in the completely redeveloped Docklands area of East London, which was so successful in hosting the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The venue offers superb auditorium, conference and exhibition space and every facility required for a successful exhibition for our industry partners.

London is one of the great cities of the world and will probably need little introduction to many of you. It is a vibrant multicultural melting pot with spectacular venues, sites, events and shopping which assure any visitor a truly memorable experience.  Of course, it is also one of the most easily accessed cities in the world, with 5 international airports and the Eurostar international rail link. London City airport is just 5 minutes away from the congress venue.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to London in 2015!

Chairman of the EuroPerio8 Organising Committee
