EU Emergency Services Workshop 2011
Under the patronage of the Hungarian Presidency of the EU Council
Date: 13-15 April 2011
Venue: Hotel Gellert, Budapest, Hungary
The four star Danubius Hotel Gellért was erected on the right bank of the river Danube between 1916 and 1918 in the Art Nouveau style. Rooms are furnished in a traditional middle-Europe style and most of them have a view on the Danube or the Gellért Hill.
This hotel is one of the most famous historical hotels in Europe, especially because of its spa that is one of the most beautiful in Europe. The Gellért Spa, located under the hotel, is a special attraction and its indoor and outdoor swimming pool, wave bath, sunbathing terrace and thermal spa can be used by the hotel guests free of charge.
Context of the event:
Once a year, the EENA organises the EU Emergency Services Workshop that gathers European emergency services, public authorities and industry representatives. This 3-day conference aims at fostering sharing of best practices between the relevant stakeholders.
In 2011, the event also hosted the Next Generation Emergency Services Workshop (ESW8 - an international emergency service standards coordination group) that looks at Next Generation, IP-based emergency calling, with a focus on coordination between different specific efforts and standards development organisations (SDOs).
The Workshop gathered around 250 participants, including around 100 emergency services and public authorities' representatives from more than 30 European countries.
