Welcome to Amsterdam Skyline

Welcome Dear Fellows,

On behalf of the European Section of the International College of Dentists, I am both honoured and excited to invite you to celebrate the 66th Annual Meeting of the Section the last weekend of June 2023. It is now almost a quarter of a century since Amsterdam was chosen to host such a meeting of the ICD. The time has come to revisit, or perhaps experience for the first time, this beautiful and in many ways extraordinary city. 

The city’s motto is I’ amsterdam, and you can be too. It symbolises the open character of the multicultural city where people still feel free and safe, connected, and tolerant towards everything and everyone.  

The congress is organised in such a way that no precious time is lost on transfers. Everything can be reached on foot or by readily accessible public transport. Moreover, there is free time in the program to visit the city of Amsterdam and its surroundings as you wish.

Hopefully this annual meeting, planned to build and strengthen the fellowship of the College in Europe, while providing an educational programme, an update on the humanitarian activities of the Section, and a celebration of the induction of new Fellows, will contribute to realising the mission of the College – recognising outstanding professional achievement and meritorious service while advocating for humanitarian and educational initiatives.

I trust that the inviting attractions and renowned hospitality of the Benelux District, together with the programme of the Annual Meeting will entice you to set the conference dates aside in your diary and attend the meeting in Amsterdam.

Warmest regards,

Walter van Driel
