Eventcenter in Antwerpen - Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp -  Eventonline

Dear colleagues,

Thomas Somers and I have the great honor and pleasure to invite you to our annual Congress of the Belgian Society of ORL, Head and Neck Surgery on December 17-18, 2021 at the beautiful venue of the Flanders Convention Center in Antwerp. The Convention center unique location is next to the Belle Epoque railway station and the Antwerp magnificent Zoo.

This Congress will finally take place "life" again and we hope to see many of you at this annual scientific highlight event.

The topic of the congress will be: "In a world with Covid, let's think out of the box".

As the title suggests, we will not only deal with the classic topics, but we will also present you some interesting themes of reflection, new visions of the future in ENT and medicine as well as some unusual but surely very instructive sessions.

We will have an ethic session on both congress days, important for your accreditation.

We will also have the pleasure to host at the same time the joint congress of the Belgian and Netherland Audiology Societies.

To ensure the safety of us all, the Covid safe pass will be requested.

Many companies have already agreed with their presence and sponsorship and will contribute by the renewed contacts with the ENT-colleagues to make this event interesting and most enjoyable.

So please save the dates of 17 and 18 December 2021 in your diaries, talk about it to your ENT-colleagues, and we hope to see you all again in a warm and safe atmosphere.

You will be able to make online registration from november 1th

We will do our very best to make this first meeting in "life" as pleasant and interesting as possible.

See you soon in Antwerp,

Sincerely yours

Thill Marie-Paule
Somers Thomas
