Rotterdam host of the 2020 European Economic Association Congress

Erasmus School of Economics

From 24 to 27 August 2020 Rotterdam will be host city of the European Economic Association Congress. This international association honoured the bid, made by Erasmus School of Economics in close cooperation with Rotterdam Partners, the official Convention Bureau of the city. This esteemed congress follows on the 2019 European Winter Meeting of the Econometric Society, which will also be held at Erasmus School of Economics.

Philip Hans Franses, Dean of Erasmus School of Economics and General Congress Chair, is very pleased: ‘With an expected attendance up to 1,000 economists from all over Europe it is wonderful news for Rotterdam and a recognition for our School. I would like to thank Rotterdam Partners for their support in composing a successful bid!’

Also Joyce Wittelaar, Account Manager at Rotterdam Partners, is contented: ‘It is fantastic news that Rotterdam is granted to host this congress, a result of a successful and ongoing partnership between Erasmus School of Economics, Rotterdam Partners and the European Economic Association. The Erasmus Expo & Conference Centre on Woudestein campus is a perfect venue for this 4-day congress. We are looking forward to welcome the European Economic Association and its delegates to Rotterdam.’
