Aside from the scientific programme you will be able to network and enjoy the extensive social programme at EMS2018.
The EMS2018 Welcome Reception: It takes a system to save a life Parade
Help bring attention to It takes a system to save a life, and that more could survive if laypersons is an important and integrated part of the EMS system.
EMS2018 delegates are invited to the official It takes a system to save a life Parade. After the last keynote session Monday we will all gather in front of the Tivoli Congress Center and together with ambulances, we will march through the streets of Copenhagen. The parade is to show our support for the EMS system and raise awareness of bystander CPR.
Midway through the walk we will be joined by a huge number of TrygFonden heart runners. Heart runners are laypersons who volunteer to provide CPR or bring out AEDs when out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrest (OHCA) occurs. Heart runners download the app ”TrygFonden Heart runner” and an alarm will sound from their smartphones when there is an OHCA nearby.
Together we will walk to the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, where there will be speeches and a social networking.
The parade is open to all EMS2018 delegates, all you must do is sign up through the registration system.
TrygFondens Morning Run
Experience Copenhagen slowly waking up while you get moving before a long day at the conference center.
The 5 km route (3,2 miles) takes us through the old part of the city and down the pedestrian street, which is one of the oldest in the world. We will run by some of the most beautiful historical buildings, castles and churches in Copenhagen and through cosy parks. We will take a look at the Danish Parliament building, the royal residence Amalienborg, the Opera House, and Nyhavn (New Harbour), the latter being the most popular place for tourists to enjoy the sun and a traditional Danish lunch.
If we are a lot of runners, we will divide into groups by speed – if we are fewer runners, we will run with a speed of approximately 5:30-6:30 minutes per km (7:45-8:15 minutes per mile).
The morning run will take place on the second day of the congress. Registration is possible through the same system as used to register for the congress. You can register at the same time as you register for the congress or you can do it later. For all you guys that has already registered for the congress, you can just look in to the system at any time if you wish to sign up for running.

The Gala dinner will take place at the famous Circus Building, right in the middle of Copenhagen. The Circus Building is the oldest of its kind in Europe. It was inaugurated with an enormous public celebration in Copenhagen on 8 May 1886. Since then, the building has played host to a wide variety of Danish and international circus troupes. Today the Circus Building is used for professional and social events.
