Well, not completely cancelled; just deferred for a couple of years. The ESA-SRB-APEG-NZSE meeting was scheduled for November 1-4 in Christchurch, New Zealand. As a result of COVID-19 induced working restrictions in New Zealand, construction was delayed and the new convention centre will now not be completed until 2021. Combined with ongoing uncertainties surrounding international travel, the decision was made to cancel the 2020 meeting.
In 2021 ESA is scheduled to meet with it’s usual conference partners in Melbourne. However, on 13 – 16 November 2022 NZSE once again plans to meet jointly with the Endocrine Society of Australia, the Society for Reproductive Biology and the Australasian Pediatric Endocrine Group at the Christchurch Convention Centre for an awesome combined meeting – fingers crossed!
