President's Welcome

Dear Members

As you will know, E-AHPBA has recently decided that the E-AHPBA 2021 Biennial Congress will be a fully virtual meeting from 15th-17th September 2021.

The prevalence of the pandemic is still high and even though these is a decline in transmission numbers across the region, we would not want E-AHPBA 2021 to become a spreader event. A face-to-face meeting will also still be limited by both social distancing measures, vaccination rates and also by travel frequency and costs. These are unknow entities at the moment, and sadly it is just too much risk for the Local Organisers and the E-AHPBA, therefore meeting virtually is the safest most efficient way for us to hold the E-AHPBA Congress in 2021.

Your safety is the E-AHPBA’s first priority, and it goes without saying that we strictly follow all advice by authorities and governments. With this in mind, E-AHPBA 2021 Bilbao will be an entirely online event. As you cannot come to Bilbao, we will bring it to you!

The Local Organising Committee in Bilbao will be the Congress hosts and the Spanish flavour will be felt throughout. The theme for the E-AHPBA 2021 Biennial Congress is FOCUS ON INNOVATION and an outstanding scientific programme that combines current evidence and state of the art technology is being prepared.

Our Scientific Programme Committee have been working tirelessly to develop an exciting and INTERACTIVE experience and will include leading keynote speakers, engaging breakout sessions, meet the professor opportunities, exclusive product updates from industry, and much, much more.  Best of all, plenaries and breakout sessions will be easily accessible on-demand for conference attendees to view at their own convenience.  It really is an invaluable opportunity to become INFORMED about the latest updates from the HPB Community and a chance to educate and INSPIRE yourself, we look forward to having you join us!


Kindest Regards,

Professor Kevin Conlon
E-AHPBA President
