Child care at FEMS2019 – registration is open until Friday 7 June!


If you are a parent you may have experienced this dilemma more than once: you want to go to a meeting abroad, but it is difficult to arrange child care. We are therefore happy to take away this hurdle that many scientists face and pilot child care services for delegates at FEMS2019.

We have teamed up with Nipperbout and Crowne Plaza hotel to provide a childcare facilities for all children between the ages of 0 to 12 year. The childcare facilities are located at the Jura Suite at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, which is connected to the congress venue. Whether you use the child care we offer or have arranged child care elsewhere, your children are allowed to access the exhibition area SEC so you can join each other for lunch.

Book your ticket now

You can register for child care at FEMS2019 until Friday 7 June. Please follow the information described here so we can ensure the care you need is provided.
