BESS 2021

Access now available until 30 November 2021

Virtual BESS is back! Delivering our annual scientific meeting, instructional course and elbow updates symposium in one fantastic virtual environment. We’re especially excited to welcome our guest nation ASES and ASSET – this will be an event to remember!

Once again the main content of the meeting will be pre-recorded and now accessible until 30 November 2021. We’ll begin with the live launch programme of our annual scientific meeting on 30 June. The main conference programme will also be released that day to view at your leisure. This will be followed a week later by our instructional course content and then later on 9 September the elbow updates symposium will launch with a live webinar, recorded content and one final post-course webinar on 7 October.

We look forward to seeing you there!
