Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,​

ESPO Marseille Goes Virtual – 6-9th November 2021

We hope you are keeping well in these strange and uncertain times.

With the ever-changing restrictions that at present limit travel and prohibit large gatherings the ESPO Board has been forced to take the decision to pivot ESPO Marseille 2021 from a live conference to a virtual conference for November 2021. Emerging new variants of coronavirus make it likely that some pandemic restrictions will continue into next autumn/winter despite the vaccination programmes which are currently underway. Therefore we have had to accept that a virtual conference is the best way to make an ESPO meeting happen this year. We look forward to seeing you at this ESPO Virtual Conference on the same dates as previously confirmed – the 6-9 November 2021.

We will be providing a world-class selection of speakers and sessions and are still showcasing Marseille and the Provence throughout the virtual conference. The virtual conference will be CME accredited and all sessions will be recorded and available to view up to 6 months after the congress.​
Virtual Programme updates are coming soon and will be published on the conference website: . ​
Registration is now open and you can register via this link. The early bird deadline is 1st August 2021.


We look forward to seeing you all virtually!


Best wishes,
Jean-Michel Triglia
Chairman of ESPO 2021

ESPO President

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the ESPO 2020 Congress in Marseille has been postponed to 13-16 February 2021.

The deferred Congress will still be called ESPO 2020, and we hope that we shall all be able to meet in Marseille in early 2021 to celebrate the end of the coronavirus pandemic!

At the moment our main concern all over the world is to give our patients the best of care while also keeping ourselves and all our staff healthy and safe. Let us all support each other and try to come out on the other side stronger than ever.

Best wishes,

Ann Hermansson, President of ESPO

Martin Bailey, Secretary-General of ESPO

Jean-Michel Triglia, Chairman of the ESPO 2020 Organising Committee
