ECVS Annual Scientific Meeting 2021 and COVID-19

The ECVS is dedicated to holding the Annual Scientific Meeting 2021 - in whatever format will be possible at that time.

With so many months yet to go until July 2021 we very much want to believe that we will be able to meet in a fairly normal manner in Antwerp. But during the course of 2020 we have all had to re-think what several months can do or undo and how rapidly, profoundly and uncontrollably a situation can change within just a few weeks.

The ECVS is planning ahead to the Annual Scientific Meeting 2021 with positive thoughts for an in-person meeting, but also with a plan B: During the next months we will prepare three different versions of the congress: in-person, entirely online, and hybrid. The final format will be decided in spring 2021, when, hopefully, we have a better idea of what kind of global situation we will find ourselves in by July.

There will be an ECVS Annual Scientific Meeting 2021. We cannot, at this stage, tell you what the exact format will be, but we will make it happen one way or another. We will prepare in the best possible way and make all the necessary provisions to also be able to react flexibly to short-term developments.

The ECVS thanks all speakers, sponsors and delegates for their understanding and support in this rather uncertain situation. We are confident that the many months yet to go and the new ideas and developments in the meeting industry will give us ample time and possibilities to create a format that will allow the ECVS community to meet. It may not be entirely in the way that we are used to and have come to appreciate so much; but we are dedicated to making it the best possible way under the conditions at that time.
