Annual Meeting

2018 Annual Meeting
July 7 - 12, 2018
Lisbon, Portugal

Registration for the 2018 Annual Meeting is now open! Register online or fill out the registration form and fax it to the IADC office at 1.312.368.1854. 


The room block at the EPIC SANA Lisboa is full. The IADC room block included essentially every room in the hotel, and the number was based on attendance and room numbers from both our Vienna and Barcelona meetings. There has been a lot of enthusiasm for this meeting, and people are bringing more of their family members and the hotel has sold out quickly.

We are making every effort to obtain additional rooms at nearby hotels for our attendees. While we work to secure room blocks, if you still need a hotel room, we encourage you to make reservations near the EPIC SANA through your travel agent or a third party vendor like or There are many excellent hotels in walking distance or a short cab ride from the EPIC SANA that have individual rooms left, but those are going quickly. To see where the EPIC SANA is in relation to surrounding hotels, click here.

The Annual Meeting will be a fantastic experience for everyone and in addition to the CLE at the hotel, it will include our major parties and social activities offsite of the hotel and tours offered around the city of Lisbon. So even if you are at a nearby hotel, you are going to have a wonderful time exploring and enjoying Lisbon with the IADC. We look forward to seeing you in July in Portugal.

If you want to be on the waiting list for hotel rooms at the EPIC SANA, please email Rebecca Zurcher Foltz, Meetings Director, at Please include your housing needs and arrival and departure dates in your email. Please also contact Rebecca if you have questions on hotel room options or if you find you have an extra room in your EPIC SANA reservation that you do not need.


Interested in playing golf in Lisbon?
Due to the number of tours the IADC offers daily during European Annual Meetings, we do not host golf tournaments. However, if you are interested in playing golf while in Lisbon for the 2018 Annual Meeting, please email Cory Gilmore, wife of member Timothy Pinos. She is looking to put together some foursomes to play golf. You can email her directly at
