NEWS: EUROSPINE 2021 is going hybrid
We are excited to announce that EUROSPINE 2021 will be held as a hybrid meeting which will allow people to join the in-person conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 13–15 October 2021 and/or to participate virtually.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that we cannot plan for an exclusive in-person event if we want all of our members and stakeholders to have the chance to join us. On the back of our successful EUROSPINE 2020 virtual meeting, we’ve decided that EUROSPINE 2021 will be hybrid – which means you can attend virtually and/or in-person.
We know that nothing can really replace personal interactions. However, the hybrid meeting format will also allow people to attend EUROSPINE 2021 who may not be able to travel due to the pandemic or its economic impact. Making the Annual Meeting more accessible helps EUROSPINE achieve its underlying mission to provide and support best practice lifelong learning and research in spinal disorders as well as bring together all spine-related European stakeholders across disciplines, cultures and countries.
At this point, we are confident that the physical part of the meeting will take place as planned with an appropriate health & safety concept. We will take all necessary measures to provide a safe, productive and enriching experience. We know that all of you would appreciate the opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues and make new connections at a face-to-face meeting. However, if circumstances demand it, we will be ready to transform it to a virtual event.
EUROSPINE 2021 will be hosting one event with two experiences – both giving you live access to the entire scientific programme. If you decide to join us in-person, we’d love to welcome you to the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden from 13–15 October 2021.
Don’t worry you don’t have to decide now – if you change your mind you can always switch to the virtual event or vice versa. Don’t miss out! Registration opens in March 2021.
We’re excited about the new format and look forward to welcoming you both virtually and in-person!
