Due to escalating health concerns and logistical problems related to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, after consultation with the local organizing committee, the ESPE Council members made the difficult decision to cancel the ESPE 2020 meetings in Barcelona. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold the meetings this year.

Thank you again for your interest and we hope to see you all in 2021. Further details will be forthcoming.

We hope you are keeping well and safe in these extraordinary times.
