As you are aware, the situation has worsened rapidly as the number of infections has increased in numerous countries worldwide, leading to travel bans and restrictions on hosting of events and congresses by governments and health authorities.
Official statements have now been released recommending suspension of all congresses, conferences and seminars in Dublin involving healthcare professionals. In accordance with this decision and the guidance provided by health authorities around the world, The ASOI, EASO and WOF Executive Committees have decided to postpone the conference at this time.
The European and International Congress on Obesity, ECO-ICO 2020, is being postponed until the the 1st to 4th of September 2020, at the Convention Center Dublin, Ireland.
