This meeting was held from 20-24 August 2007 at the congress and concert centre “De Doelen”, Rotterdam.
The Welcome Ceremony was a Dutch evening in the Cruise Terminal of Rotterdam Harbour.
The Gala Dinner was held in the historic 15th century St Laurens Church, one of the only buildings still standing in Rotterdam after the Second World War. It is still an active church, so it was unusual to be drinking and eating and being entertained inside. It was a very good evening.

- ICS Holland House: roof top hospitality area with daily special presentations and prizes.
- For the first time ICS workshops and educational courses were accredited within the EU-ACME programme of the European Board of Urology
