17th Congress of ECCO, February 16-19, 2022, Vienna/Austria

Group registration process

Please be informed that all ECCO Congress delegates need to be vaccinated and show a valid vaccination proof upon first entry into the congress center.

In addition, all ECCO Congress delegates are asked to provide identification together with their vaccination proof during the entrance checks.

Make sure that the vaccine you received has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Information on approved vaccines within the European Union can be found on the homepage of the European Commission or EMA directly.

We recommend to use the EU Digital COVID Certificate in order to facilitate the entrance checks at the congress center. ECCO Congress delegates from non-EU countries are required to provide a vaccination certificate issued by a national or state-level public health authority in English or German. Further, as a minimum it needs to include: full name, date of birth, vaccine brand and manufacturer, date of vaccination and country or territory of vaccination and/or certificate issuer.

For more information, please check the current travel information here and government requirements in Vienna here.

How to buy e-Vouchers for a group:

1 - You need to have an ECCO Account. You can create a new account, or retrieve the log in details of your current account directly through the ECCO Portal.

2- You need to know how many ECCO Members 2022 you would like to have in your group so you can benefit from the reduced member fees.

3- You need to make sure to enter the correct invoice details during the registration process and indicate the correct VAT No. or Tax ID. If you require any changes to the invoice after it has already been issued, it will result in an administrative fee of 5% of the total invoice amount.

4- Group coordinators can buy e-Vouchers for members/non-members/exhibitors (1 to 250 within one registration / no upload of certificates required / selection of 3 fee alternatives).

5- A group confirmation and its corresponding invoice(s) are sent to the group coordinator after the group registration is complete. Your invoice(s) will also be available under the respective registration on the ECCO Portal. If a registration deadline has passed before we receive your payment, the next applicable registration fee shall automatically apply and a new invoice will be issued.

6- You need to provide the e-voucher codes to your delegates and invite them to activate their e-Voucher in the ECCO Portal by clicking on “Congress Registration” and “Activate e-Voucher”. Your delegates will appear on your final registration list. You will be able to download your registration overview in excel format.

Voucher codes are unique and will reflect the registration fee purchased. For instance, a non-member cannot use a member’s voucher code. A non-member voucher can be used for a member.

7- Each delegate needs their own ECCO Account so they can activate their e-Voucher under the registration button. Once a delegate activates their e-Voucher code, a registration confirmation is sent directly to this delegate.

8- Any Educational Courses on behalf of your delegates can be added to your registration directly under the respective delegate (who needs to be an ECCO Member and attends in person in Vienna) and needs to already have activated their e-voucher. Button: Add extras.

9- Track/edit your group registration in the ECCO Portal. Group coordinators can download an excel file of their group registration overview showing all the e-Vouchers codes. Group coordinators need to make sure that all their delegates have activated their e-Vouchers by January 26, 2022 and that the registrations are fully paid.  The full name of a delegate will show in the registration, once they activate their e-Voucher.

10- A cancelled registration can be allocated to another delegate at the same registration fee, free of charge until January 26, 2022 (name change). Button: Remove & Change e-Voucher, afterwards the e-Voucher code can be sent to another delegate.
