Since the last update published on the ESH website, concern related to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has continued to grow at the global level.

In view of the increasing number of infected patients in countries worldwide, many medical organizations and health authorities have decided to implement travel restrictions in order to limit exposure to the virus and ensure that patients at home continue to benefit from the presence of their medical specialists.  These measures concern many speakers and registered participants of the ESH conference cited in reference.

Our first priority is your safety and that of your patients. We also want to make sure that participants who come to ESH benefit from the presence of a complete faculty of global experts in their field. For these reasons, we have decided to postpone the meeting and to re-schedule it earlier next year, on January 28-30, 2021, at the same venue in Mandelieu-La Napoule. 

If you are a confirmed registrant in this ESH conference, please be assured that your registration in the meeting remains valid for the new dates, in January 2021. We will continue to update the information on the ESH website and also to keep you updated directly but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions. Please also kindly confirm to us if you intend to be with us or not.

Please also be informed that Air France and other airline companies have announced the possibility to rebook flights at no extra cost, provided that you do this before your current tickets expire. We invite you to make contact with your travel agency in this regard.

Also, if you have already booked a hotel room in Mandelieu-La Napoule, please contact your hotel for rebooking or cancelation as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this message will entail and we thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to welcoming you the 7th Translational Research Conference: Myelodysplastic Syndromes and we will be in touch with you with further information very shortly.
