Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits will be applied for with the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). EACCME credits are recognized by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). ESHRE will not apply for CME for individual countries (i.e. only CME credits with EACCME will be applied for).

Information about the certification exams is available on the ESHRE website

A technical exhibition of pharmaceutical, surgical and laboratory products will be organized, and will be located in the exhibition area of the congress centre. The exhibition will be officially opened with the traditional welcome reception at 8 p.m. on Sunday, 25 June immediately following the Opening Ceremony of the Annual Meeting.

Exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet (potential) customers, to have great visibility and to expand their global reach through our exhibition.

ESHRE does not accept liability for individual medical, travel or personal insurance, and participants are strongly advised to take out their own personal insurance in their country of origin. Participation in all excursions, tours, social events, etc. is at personal risk.
Lunch is complimentary but limited and is therefore offered on a first come, first serve basis to participants who are on site and wish to save time during lunch breaks.

All the programme sessions will become available to watch on-demand. All you need to do, is log into the virtual platform, select the day the session was played and click 'Watch session on-demand'.

The main aim of ESHRE is to promote interest in infertility care and to aim for a holistic understanding of reproductive biology and medicine. To achieve this, ESHRE organises (among other things) an Annual Meeting to promote international exchange between experts in reproductive medicine and biology, to advocate universal improvements in scientific research, to encourage and evaluate new developments in the field, and to foster harmonization in clinical practice. Therefore, the Society, in good faith, welcomes participants from around the globe and assumes that they will respect the non-political nature of our Annual Meeting.

Participants registered for ESHRE main scientific programme – 26 to 28 June 2023 - will be entitled to a 3-day transportation ticket.
The 3-day ticket covers metro, bus, train and the harbour bus.
General information regarding the public transportation can be found here: You can download a metro map via this link.
Contrary to previous years, the ticket is not a physical ticket, but an e-ticket.

One week prior to the start of the congress, participants will receive an e-mail from ESHRE with a unique code to download the ticket.
This code allows for three pre-paid transportation days within the period starting from Friday, 23 June to Thursday, 29 June 2023 inclusive, two days must be consecutive.

It will be possible to add additional days, to the three pre-paid days, at the participant’s own expense. 36 DKK/day which is approx. 5 Euro.
A credit card (except American Express) or passport is required to obtain the ticket. The participant will need to make sure to carry the same credit card or passport on them when using the public transportation: this will be used to identify the participant in case they get stopped and their ticket checked by a conductor.

There are limited transportation tickets available, these will be issued on a first come first served basis and one per participant.

The registration desk will be located in the entrance hall of the BellaCenter and will be open at the following hours:

Smoking is strictly forbidden within the entire Bella Center building. There are designated smoking areas outside the building.

Furthermore, Denmark has a smoking ban in all public indoor areas along with most other western European countries.

In Copenhagen, smoking is forbidden in public buildings and private businesses - including restaurants, shops, transport, entertainment venues, workplaces etc.

The only exception from the ban is for establishments with an area less than 40 square metres, that do not serve fresh food - so you can still enjoy a cigarette in some smaller pubs. Some places have installed special smoking rooms but most refer smokers to the streets.

Likewise, if you visit a Danish home - smoking and non-smoking - it is expected that you step outside if you need to smoke.

The time zone in Denmark is Central European (Summer) Time CE(S)T, 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +1).
