We are pleased to announce that the International MPS Network and MPS Spain have approved the new dates for the 16th International Symposium on MPS & Related Diseases, which will take place from Friday, July 30 till Sunday, August 1, 2021.
The International Symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower, the same venue where it was scheduled to take place this year.
Registration to attend the Symposium will reopen after the summer. Exact dates will be announced through this newsletter and the International MPS Network.
During this week we contacted all attendees who had already registered and reserved their accommodation for this summer. Please allow us time to process refunds for all who have requested it.
As you know, protecting the health, safety and well-being of all the attendees was at the heart of the decision to postpone the MPS International Symposium. Thank you all for your support and understanding.
We would like to use this opportunity to send special thanks to all the sponsors of the Symposium for their continue support and for standing by the MPS community in this difficult decision.
Dear MPS Patients, Families, HCPs, Scientists, Industry representatives and general attendees,
We contact you regarding the current situation with Covid19 and its impact on the normal development of the 16th International Symposium on MPS & Related Diseases planned for this summer.
Over the last weeks, we have been monitoring the coronavirus situation closely and, given that this is an unprecedented situation whose development is hard to foresee, after careful considerations the International MPS Network and MPS Spain have decided that the safest option for all the attendees is to postpone the Symposium for 2021.
Protecting the health, safety and well-being of MPS Patients, their families, and all the other attendees is paramount and at the heart of the decision to postpone the MPS International Symposium.
Although new dates have not yet been defined, they will surely fall around the same weekend next year. New dates will be confirmed as soon as possible. We look forward to your attendance at the Symposium in 2021.
In the coming days, we will contact all attendees who have already registered and reserved their accommodation for this summer. Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t receive an email from us in the next few days.
We thank you for your support and understanding of this decision that has been adopted with the aim of protecting the health of all the attendees.
