This year's Radiology Congress not only focused on AI when it came to content. Co-hosted by robot Ameca and featuring plenty of other surprising highlights, the ECR set a new benchmark for the congress experience of tomorrow for its 19,000 visitors.

Menschen gehen auf ein Gebaeude zu. Ein verglaster Eingang mit LED-Wand. Menschen auf einem Messegelaende, in Vortragsraeumen und Lounges. Ein Koch gibt Essen aus. Menschen erklaeren medizinische Geraete. Ein TV-Studio. Ein Saal voller Menschen und eine Buehnenshow.

Hall A opening show-Opening Ceremony with S.H.O.C.K

A capacity crowd in Hall A, and a supposed technical failure. Or was it part of the show after all? Robot Ameca took to the stage to welcome the participants. Together with Congress President Carlo Catalano, the instantly-likeable robot hosted the evening’s proceedings. Zucaroh, Austrian acrobatics & dance show group (2018 America's Got Talent Golden Buzzer Winners), delivered a jaw-dropping show.

Surprising video installation -A real eye-catcher in Hall X5

The outside wall of Hall X5 – opposite Entrance 1 – featured a giant robot head. With moving eyes that looked like they were watching participants, it turned out to be a popular selfie spot. Meanwhile, compelling content was cast in the starring role in the AI Theatre, which served as a hub for machine learning and big data in Hall X1.

ECR 2024 was certified as a Green Meeting in accordance with the Austrian Umweltzeichen ecolabel. From regional catering to event technology, and from LED lighting and green electricity in our building, right through to procurement, material and waste management, this event had all the sustainability angles covered.
