c13_welcomeWelcome to the SIETAR Congress website. The preparations for the 19th SIETAR Europa Congress to be held in Tallinn are well underway and we are really proud that we are holding this event for the first time in Estonia.

The dates for the event are: September 18th to September 21st 2013 (Wednesday Evening to Saturday Night). A special 'how to' day of workshops to enhance your business offering to your clients will be held on Wednesday 18th.

The working theme of the congress is "Global Reach, Local Touch" promoting the need for inclusionary thinking, the valuing of diversity and the synergistic performance of people working together across the globe - reflecting the reality of our everyday lives.

Different from before, this event will be a 'glocal' congress where we will be using the latest technology to be wired to the rest of the world for broadcasting and receiving live presentations from partner organisations across the globe. We will have live interaction from our audience via Twitter, Facebook, etc. There will also be TED-style presentations and workshops.

Similar to the previous events there will be closed meetings, committee meetings and plenary sessions. Once again we will have a chance to discuss the most important issues, new research data and exchange ideas.

Tallinn, one of the most beautiful cities in this part of Europe, is a dynamic and radiant city that features stunning architecture and a vibrant cultural life. You will have plenty of touring and shopping opportunities to take advantage of in the city. In 2011, Tallinn was the European Capital of Culture. Take time to wander through the Tallinn's many historical landmarks and enjoy the grace of scenery. It's a little-known city with a big heart.

You can find more information about Tallinn and the venue under "About Tallinn and the Venue".

We will be delighted to welcome you to Tallinn in September 2013.
