TRAUMA: 'A GLOBAL DISEASE'

Improve outcomes, work together
 


Organized by the Dutch Trauma Foundation (Stichting Traumatologie Nederland - STN)

Scientific partners:

Invitation
As a valued colleague in trauma care, we would like to inform you about the upcoming 1st Triennial Conference of the International Orthopaedic Trauma Association (IOTA), which is being organized by the IOTA in collaboration with the Dutch Trauma Foundation (STN).
The IOTA is an international and increasingly growing organization, initiated by the OTA, where 24 members from 23 different countries from 4 continents join in sharing and spreading knowledge and cooperation in the field of Orthopaedic Trauma Care worldwide.

The first IOTA Triennial Conference will be incorporated in a three-day International Trauma Conference, where the international program is combined with a significant part of the annual Dutch Trauma Conference. Well renowned keynote lecturers from the member societies will participate in this three-day high standard conference. This meeting will be held at the RAI Conference Center in Amsterdam, 14 - 16 December 2022.

We expect over 1,000 trauma surgeons and orthopedic trauma surgeons from all over the world, of which around 75% will come from the Netherlands and another quarter from 24 other IOTA member-countries from four continents. They will meet to exchange knowledge and facilitate international projects in trauma research and education in the first Triennial meeting of the IOTA , and will also actively participate in the Dutch “Traumadagen” yearly event. Of course, we will keep you informed in the upcoming months of the program and any other matters that may be of interest to you.
We invite you to a sneak preview on the website, where you can find the progress of the program, as well as other items, such as the program topics, available hotel accommodation, and more.

We would be pleased to welcome you to this special conference. Should you need any other information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Email: secretariaat@trauma.nl.

On behalf of the conference committee, we express the hope to welcome you at the 1st Triennial IOTA & International Dutch Trauma Meeting!

AMSTERDAM
 

> City to Meet
Let us welcome you to Amsterdam, a place of many inspiring and surprising faces. No other city mixes cosmopolitan style and relaxed atmosphere quite like Amsterdam, where our hospitable nature attracts an excitingly diverse population. We invite you to join us and make our metropolis your own during your stay. Whether admiring the Golden Age gabled merchants’ houses of the old city centre or marvelling at the sleek skylines of the new Zuidas and harbour areas, you will see that Amsterdammers pride themselves on the city’s rich history while keeping focused on the future. Creative energy and innovation abound, strengthening and inspiring the established international business community. Home to some of the world’s most acclaimed works of art, with more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris and nearly 7,000 monumental buildings, our compact floating city offers a variety of historical and cultural treasures. It’s no wonder Amsterdam’s historic canal ring has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Maybe you will visit our world-famous diamond factories, discover the city’s tradition as a jazz hub or simply soak up the local nightlife in a casual café – whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy our vibrant, open spirit. Welcome to Amsterdam.

The City of Amsterdam


> Accessible & compact
Amsterdam is a national and international gateway. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is considered one of the best in the world and is just 20 minutes from the city centre. Amsterdam’s compact city centre has an outstanding public transport service and therefore most facilities and sights are within walking distance of each other. The city’s network of canals also offers a unique opportunity to transport your delegates via the water.

> Historic heart
Amsterdam was founded in the Middle Ages near a dam on the River Amstel. The city truly blossomed in the early 17th century, when it became the world’s largest centre for trade and art. The historic heart of the city known as the ‘Grachtengordel’ (canal ring) has remained beautifully intact to this day. The area is by no means an open-air museum, but rather the warm, friendly and vibrant heart of the city.

> Stable economic climate
Though recent publications indicate price increases in the capital and in the Netherlands, the Amsterdam congress and conference market has, in general, remained stable. The relationship between price and quality has passed official international testing with satisfactory results.

> Outstanding culture
The Netherlands capital city has been a centre of creativity and culture for centuries. Works by 17th century Dutch Masters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer grace the walls of Amsterdam’s famous Rijksmuseum. The Van Gogh Museum houses several of the artists’ masterpieces. Other cultural treasures include Anne Frank’s House, the baroque Royal Palace on Dam Square and the Rembrandt House. Amsterdam can even satisfy the cultural pallet of the most experienced visitor.

> Knowledge centre
During the 17th century Amsterdam was a stockpile of trading goods; today knowledge is also being generated. With two highly developed universities and several laboratories, Amsterdam is now firmly on the world map as a centre of knowledge. The city attracts many prominent academics and has become an attractive meeting place for those involved in science and research. Due in part to its central location on the edge of Europe, Amsterdam now offers a new ‘market place’ for the free and efficient exchange of ideas and knowledge.

> Dazzling nightlife
Amsterdam is home to an array of bars, nightclubs and cafés. Authentic 19th century pubs or ‘brown cafés’ can be found all over the city, alongside their contemporary counterparts: designer grand cafés and sleek lounge bars. The most popular bar areas are around the Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein. The hottest new dance music is played in trendy Amsterdam nightclubs by some of the top DJs in the world. There are also jazz cafés, late night bars and a large casino in the city. Best of all, nightlife venues are located less than a few square miles of each other.

> Striking events
Some 30 to 40 festivals take place in Amsterdam each year, many of which have come to be world-renowned. The Holland Festival showcases the very best in theatre, opera and ballet; the Canal Festival features classical music played on floating stages; the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival screens art house to mainstream masterpieces; and the theatre season is opened every year at ‘Uitmarkt’, with stages across the city. There are also several weekly events, including great Ajax football matches at the futuristic Amsterdam ArenA Stadium.

> Superb surroundings
Most people think of the Netherlands as the land of tulips and windmills. In just 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam you can experience this side of the Netherlands. The villages of Marken and Volendam are an open-air museum with an unrivalled display of authentic Dutch houses and windmills. In springtime, tour the spectacular bulb fields or take in the blossoming flowers at the world’s most photographed location: the Keukenhof.

> Colourful people
Amsterdam has always set itself apart from other European capitals. During the 17th century ‘Golden Age’ the city was a centre for trade and art. In the 60s it was Europe’s ‘magical centre’. People are what make Amsterdam the unique city it is. The city’s character is highly individual, spirited and young at heart. Its inhabitants are traditionally friendly, tolerant and cosmopolitan by nature: a mindset illustrated by the fact that most speak more than one language. With 174 different cultures, Amsterdam is amongst the most diverse in the world.

> Business with pleasure
Home to the world’s first multinational company, the Dutch East India Company, Amsterdam is also the new address for Google and AKZO Nobel headquarters. A consistent high score in the European Cities Monitor for companies may be a reason why several international companies have their head office in Amsterdam. Advertising and design firms prefer Amsterdam for its ability to attract creative people. Because of its compact size and excellent infrastructure, Amsterdam combines and does business on the level with other European capitals, but with the ambience of a small town. The city of Amsterdam is in the top ten of the world’s most preferred conference cities.

Venue: Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre

The history of Amsterdam RAI dates back to 1893, when the Bicycle Industry Association was set up. In 1900 the name of the association was lengthened to include an "A" for Automobile. Nowadays, with more than two million visitors yearly, Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre is one of Europe's most important international exhibition-and conference venues. Each year, some 1.000 national and international conferences and cultural functions are held in the Congress Centre, which is flanked by the RAI's three exhibition complexes. Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre is situated in one of Amsterdam's green areas, only some three kilometres from the historic city centre and ten kilometres from Amsterdam International Airport Schiphol. This modern congress centre, the largest of its kind in the country, is professionally equipped, serviced and staffed to meet all the needs of successful international meetings. Amsterdam RAI is best measured in terms of the expertise of its management and staff, and the advanced and sophisticated amenities that enhance the programme and assure the comfort of the delegates.

Accessibility

Amsterdam has excellent accessibility by air, by rail and road

>By air
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of the world’s most modern and efficient airports, which is why is designated ‘Best Airport in Europe’(and fourth best in the world) in the 2010 Business Traveller Awards. Scheduled services fly into Schiphol from at least 128 destinations within Europe and from 108 non- European destinations. Some 110 airlines fly from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to more than 265 destinations worldwide. In 2010, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol served 45.2 million passengers. Schiphol trainstation is located directly below the airport and by train you arrive at Amsterdam Central Station within 15 minutes. Via Schiphol Plaza, you can walk straight to the departure or arrival hall. There are also 15 to 20 trains a day to destinations such as Brussels, Paris and Frankfurt.

> By train
The Dutch Railway company transports some one million travellers a day over the busiest railway network in the world. The NS Group comprises a number of operating companies which ensure the transportation of travellers and the development and exploitation of transport junctions. NS International operates the international transport of passengers by train. Thalys Nederland, ICE International, IC, Benelux and CiyNightLine transport passengers to various destinations including France, Germany and Belgium.

>By bus
Long-distance Euroline busses connect Amsterdam with most European cities. Within the country, buses are used for regional transport rather than for long distances. They do, however, fill the rail gaps in the north and east of the Netherlands. Bus stations are typically situated next to the main railway station in a town. In towns with no rail service they are usually located in the town centre.

> By boat
Most travellers go overland through Belgium and France to catch a boat to England, however ferries also run between the Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland) and Harwich, UK; Europoort (near Rotterdam) and Hull, UK; IJmuiden (near Amsterdam) and Newcastle, UK; and Ijmuiden and Kristiansand, Norway.

> Local infrastructure
The compact size of Amsterdam means that almost everything is within walking distance of each other. Nevertheless the public transport network of buses, trams and metro is efficient, modern, reliable and inexpensive. The GVB is the public transport company of Amsterdam. One million passengers within greater Amsterdam travel by tram, bus, metro and ferry every day.

> Various
The city of Amsterdam has 750,000 inhabitants and 600,000 bicycles. It is rare to have a moment in the city when a bicycle does not zip by you. The Dutch use their bicycles as a means of transportation - to go shopping, commute to work and so on - rather than for recreational purposes. With beautiful scenery, flat landscapes and some 15,000 kilometres of specially designated bicycle paths and routes, cycling in the Netherlands is not only practical, but also very enjoyable.
