On behalf of ESAG I would like to wish each and everyone to be safe and healthy!
For the last weeks we have been closely monitoring guidance from international, European and local governments, as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). The recent COVID-19 outbreak is touching many of our friends, family and colleagues around the globe, with public health measures requiring doors and borders to close to a full "lock down".
As the safety of our delegates, faculty, and exhibitors is our utmost priority, today and in light of the current pandemic with COVID-19; in an effort to help contain the spread of this virus and following directives of local authorities for a complete lock down of all activities; anticipating and adapting as fast as we can to the information coming every minute we are forced to postpone ESAG 5th World Congress that was initially scheduled to take place in Athens, Greece during the dates May 24th to 27th 2020.
Following all required communications, we have now finalized all requirements and we would like to inform you that:
New dates of ESAG 5th World Congress are the following:
ESAG 5th World Congress

Adhering to the below program:

- Tuesday, 1st June 2021 2nd Official Congress day & Gala dinner & Awards' night
- Wednesday, 2nd June 2021 ESAG Master Class by the World Experts
In light of the above we would like to inform all of our delegates, faculty and exhibitors that all registrations, exhibition & sponsoring agreements, as well as faculty arrangements will be honored as already agreed & arranged.
Until this time, the ESAG Team continues to monitor the situation, remaining as motivated as ever to reach out beyond the boundaries for the continued medical learning of our community members; working uninterruptedly to bring everyone the best structured, informative & educational sessions; for which you will be soon informed about.
ESAG's priority lies in the safety and health of our community and we look forward to staying connected during this challenging time.
