Registration is now open

All you need to know about attending ESOT Congress 2021 

ESOT Congress 2021 offers the perfect place for transplantation professionals to gather, network and discuss new and exciting topics in the field of organ transplantation.

Registration for the ESOT Congress 2021 in Milan is now open.

The health and safety of Congress attendees is our first and foremost priority. We are taking a number of precautions to ensure the meeting will be a safe place for delegates to join us in-person in Milan. More information on these measures can be found here.

In addition, by utilising the very best technical solutions and live streaming, we will also be able to bring the Congress to delegates wherever they are in the world, offering a truly hybrid experience

Flexible Registration Offering

We recognise that during these uncertain and ever-changing times, it is difficult for delegates to decide how they would like to experience this year’s Congress – whether to join us in-person or attend virtually. With this in mind, we are delighted to offer a flexible and dynamic registration process which we hope will give peace of mind to our community.

If you register now for on-site attendance and are then unable to attend the meeting in Milan, we would be pleased to offer a refund on the price difference so you only pay for the online experience*.

In addition, if you register now for online attendance and then decide in the future that you would like to attend in Milan, you will only be required to make up the price difference in attending on-site*.

*Please note that you will need to make a decision by 31 July 2021 on whether you would like to keep or change your type of Congress registration.

Due to the restrictions we are putting in place regarding the number of attendees allowed within the Congress venue, we would encourage delegates to book early to avoid disappointment if they are hoping to join us in Milan.

We hope that this flexible registration offering provides our community with reassurance and comfort, but if you do have any queries or concerns then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
