The ESA Conference Bureau is supported by Congrex, a leading company in international professional conference organisation.
As a contractor onsite Congrex has been an ongoing presence within ESA since 1989 initially managing the reception area and the conference facilities, and later offering administrative and logistical support to directorates needing event or meeting management.
In the years since the ESA Conference Bureau has organised well over 1500 conferences and meetings, held at nearly every ESA facility and at independent commercial venues abroad in many of the 18 member nations and beyond.
Quite appropriately in 2003, the role of Congrex as what was originally know as the ESTEC Conference Bureau shifted into that of a full professional conference organiser for the entire Agency, and gave the bureau a new name: ESA Conference Bureau, or ECB.
