Important announcement regarding the 2021 EEBA Annual Meeting
The European Eye Bank Association regretfully announces that the 2021 EEBA Annual Meeting has been cancelled.
In view of ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the local organising committee for EEBA 2021 felt that the momentous and unpredictable public health crisis didn’t proffer them with a realistic chance of organising a safe and successful meeting and as such they called for the event to be postponed until 2022. This unwelcome but understandable appeal was accepted by the EEBA Committee and as a result the European Eye Bank Association formally affirms that the XXXIII Annual Meeting, scheduled to take place in March 2021, will now take place in Liverpool in March 2022.
As you can imagine, the decision to cancel the 2021 EEBA Annual Meeting was not an easy one and one which was not taken lightly and the EEBA Committee recognizes the magnitude of this outcome for the Association and our Members. Nevertheless, in the face of this unprecedented and precarious crisis, the Committee felt that it was important to focus on our collective health and safeguard the welfare of those who travel to attend the Annual Meeting. To this end, EEBA hopes that everyone will understand and support this decision.
