European Seating Symposium postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Originally set to take place in Dublin this June, the European Seating Symposium’s committee has confirmed that the conference has been moved to 2021 in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Europe’s leading event for promoting research, education and practice in the fields of seating, assistive technologies and mobility, the European Seating Symposium’s seventh event was scheduled to be held from the 10th to the 12th June 2020 in Dublin’s Croke Park Stadium.
With the outbreak of coronavirus across the world, however, the organisers have moved the date to the 15th to the 18th June 2021 at the same location.
Communication from the European Seating Symposium said: “The ESS Organising Committee have evaluated and exhausted all options for delivering the conference within 2020 and have concluded that unfortunately there is no viable date for the Symposium to take place this year.”
Held annually, the event is visited by healthcare and industry professionals in seating, mobility and assistive tech from across the globe to see the latest technology, hear from leading expert speakers and discover the latest research in the sector.
The postponement comes as almost all assistive technology events planned in the spring and summer of 2020 have been either delayed, including Naidex, Warrington Disability Partnership’s Disability Awareness Day, several OTAC conferences and Kidz to Adultz South.
