On behalf of the International Headache Society we are delighted to invite you to IHC 2019, the 19th Congress of the International Headache Society. IHC 2019 will take place from 5–8 September 2019, in Dublin, Ireland.
The title of our meeting is “Dawn of new headache treatments”. This may be considered a very bold statement, but we are entering an entirely novel and exciting chapter in migraine treatment. The molecular era has arrived. Antibodies against CGRP and the CGRP receptor are on the market. This is the result of many years of hard work. It is most important for our patients, as we can now provide them with a specific molecular treatment for their migraine which has a good response rate with very few side effects. Additional novel treatments are also on the way for which data will hopefully be presented during the congress.
In Dublin, we will present delegates with the most up to date research in basic and clinical science. We will provide a broad understanding of the scientific background of primary headache disorders, thus ensuring an exciting future for headache medicine. Please come to Dublin and participate in the excitement. We invite you to share your knowledge and learn about the latest advances in headache treatment.
Ireland is a wonderful “green island” and is a place known to give a warm welcome to all visitors. The country is full of interesting history and there are many sights to see, both in Dublin and the surrounding countryside. IHC 2019 will take place at the Convention Centre Dublin which is on the river Liffey. This area is surrounded by hotels and is within a short walking distance of this beautiful and historic city. Trinity College (the Book of Kells), St Stephens Green, Kilmainham Gaol, and the Guinness Brewery are only a few of the famous attractions on your doorstep. The conference will provide an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues and make new friends.
Please join us in Dublin which we are sure will be a perfect venue for the congress.
