29 September–3 October 1999, AMSTERDAM – NETHERLANDS
® “Let’s make skin better!” A very impressive motto for the 8 th EADV Congress that took place at the RAI Congress Centre in Amsterdam in 1999. The Congress President, Prof Willem van Vloten, with the invaluable assistance of Prof Jan Bos and the local organising com- mittee, put together all the necessary details that made the event a big success. A record high of over 4000 participants enjoyed an interesting scien- tific programme and this was evident by the well-attended lecture rooms. The participants also had the opportunity to experience the beautiful city with its canals, enjoy a boat trip and visit the most famous museums, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum and the house of Anne Frank. Apart from the impressive scientific programme that was well received, the 8 th Congress also proved successful economically and contributed a net benefit of more than €1.25 million Euros towards the Academy.
