The 2013 Congress in Croatia was hosted by the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) and drew more than 300 members from over 30 countries. On the first full day of the conference outdoor demonstrations were held, with conference sessions and commission meetings on the remaining days. Simultaneous translation was provided for all major sessions in English, French and German with the latest equipment and headphones, as well as sound proof booths for the translators. Delegates were housed and fed at the Elaphusa Hotel and the general meetings were held in a first class conference hall at that location. There was a vendors exhibition with displays of outdoor and rescue equipment available to all the delegates.
