EAACI Digital Congress 2020

Q&A

EAACI Congress 2020 goes digital - What does it mean?


Why has the congress been transformed into a digital event?

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that our Congress venue, ExCel London was converted into a makeshift hospital, EAACI decided to deliver the Annual Congress 2020 as a digital event. EAACI's main concern is to protect the health, safety and well-being of its members, delegates, faculty, exhibitors and staff. During these difficult and challenging times, a digital Congress is the best way to bring the EAACI community together and to grant everyone flexibility in accessing the scientific content, while complying with health recommendations.

When will the EAACI Digital Congress take place?
The EAACI Digital Congress will take place from 6 to 8 of June 2020.

All the sessions indicated on our programme will be based on Central European Time (CET).
