Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,
For the first time in SECEC history the organization of the meeting has been awarded to Poland and our part of Europe. We were already prepared for 2020 so can easily say that we are ready to host the SECEC family on the highest possible level. I am sure this meeting will represent Eastern European spirit and hospitality, coming not only from Poland, but all our neighbors. We are painfully aware of uncertainties regarding planning of the Congress in the current situation. We also know very well that we all miss so much meeting in real life not only virtually. We will make every effort to organize not only a successful meeting but also provide safety measures for our participants.
The venue in Poznan is historically one of the oldest in our country established in 1921 and currently serves as a modern adjustable congress center located in the center of the city. Most of the hotels will be in quite close proximity to the center and the Old Town. Poznan is easily accessible by all routes (flights, trains, cars). It is a vibrant city full of culture, history (first capital of Poland), education and sports.
WE truly hope that we will have an opportunity for real and personal participation in probably the most important shoulder and elbow scientific meeting in the world, hosting best experts and researchers. Social events will be equally attractive.
On behalf of Polish Shoulder and Elbow Society, University of Medical Sciences in Poznan, and Eastern European Support Committee of SECEC we are inviting you to join us in Poznan in 2021.

Przemyslaw Lubiatowski
Congress President
Emilio Calvo Crespo
President of SECEC
