Dear friends of the ESHA Biennial Conference, we hope that this message finds you all healthy and safe. After careful consideration of all the parameters regarding outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and following discussions we had with epidemiologists and the ESHA board members, we have decided to postpone the ESHA 2020 Conference to new dates. The new dates are: 18-21 May 2022.

Initially we scheduled the conference to take place in October 2020. However, during the first wave of the pandemic we decided to move the dates in October 2021 and now, taking into consideration the ongoing reality of a second wave, we decided to postpone the dates in May 2022.

The various restrictions set by health authorities and local governments, the possibility of another outbreak during the next months and – above all – the values of health, safety and security of all participants were the main reasons behind our decision.

We are pleased to inform you that all arrangements have been made so that the conference is transferred for 2022. 


For those who have already registered at the Conference, the registration is automatically transferred and applies for the ESHA 2022 Conference. A letter of confirmation will be sent from the Conference Secretariat office as well.

Hotel Accommodation

For those who have already booked and paid for their hotel accommodation via the Conference website, their booking is automatically transferred and confirmed for the respective dates in May 2022. Accommodation bookings will be adjusted based on the exact dates of stay of each participant. The Conference website will be updated and frequent updates will be posted to keep you up to date. The Conference Secretariat will contact all who have registered and/or booked hotel accommodation in order to update them individually on the status of their registration/booking and to send them the respective letter of confirmation.

For any inquiries feel free to contact the Conference Secretariat Office who will be happy to assist you and answer to any questions you may have.
