NECTM was founded by twelve travel health organizations and societies in eight countries to meet common educational needs in an expanding multidisciplinary and multiprofessional field of Travel Medicine. The first biennial conference was successfully organized in Edinburgh in 2006 followed by Helsinki, Hamburg, Dublin, Bergen, London and Stockholm. Between 500 to 1000 travel medicine specialists and practioners across Europe and internationally meet every other year with a smile on our faces to update on science, to discuss, interact, learn and enjoy. Every NECTM is unique and reflects current scientific challenges as well as specific travel medicine issues.

We aim for a conference experience of the highest quality, with world class speakers, learning and networking opportunities, venue and organisation and social programme. We hope you will join us for a great event.


For the 8th NECTM the attendance of approximately 500 to 700 participants is anticipated. The target audience for this consists of travel medicine and health practitioners, infectious disease and tropical medicine specialists, researchers, general practioners, nurses, pharmacists and students involved in this field and related specialities.
