Postponement ECR 2020

Dear Congress Participant,
Dear Friend,

ECR 2020 is postponed to July 15–19, 2020 – please mark your calendars!

Please note that this postponement is a fully equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled for March 11–15.

It goes without saying that registration fees for the event as well as for the online services will remain in place for the new congress date. Registration to the ECR 2020 remains open.

After careful evaluation of the spreading corona virus epidemic, and considering the recent statements issued by the WHO and the ECDC, and the related evolving world-wide restrictions and crisis, the ESR was forced to make this decision. Above all, we have analysed the recommendations from the Austrian health authorities for large-scale events and came to the conclusion that we are not in a position to fulfil their requirements and guarantee a safe congress for our participants and industry partners at this time. The safety, health and well-being of our delegates and partners will always be the highest priority for the ESR.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants and industry partners for their understanding, continuous support and flexibility. The majority of our industry partners have already expressed their ongoing commitment and are fully on board for ECR 2020 in July.

Please rest assured that in these turbulent and challenging times, the entire ESR and ECR team are doing their best to respond to any query at the earliest possible time and to make ECR 2020 a spectacular and memorable event for all.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you to Vienna in July!

Yours sincerely,

Boris Brkljačić, ESR President
