The 20th edition of the European Society for Organ Transplantation’s (ESOT) congress has just been celebrated in-person and online from 29th August to 1st September at the MiCo Convention Centre in Milan (Italy). The biennial ESOT Congress is the largest gathering of the transplant community in Europe bringing clinicians, surgeons, physicians, nurses, scientists, researchers and patients to review the latest developments in transplantation. AIM Group International, as the appointed PCO, has supported ESOT to organise the in-person event in Milan.

The ESOT Congress 2021 is one of the first major, international congresses with a large face-to-face international attendance and for that reason it recorded a great degree of enthusiasm from the transplant community who have been waiting for the opportunity to reconvene. The 4-day event registered 1.200 in-person participants plus 1.400 online attendees, with an astonishingly broad international representation from 74 countries, including European but also overseas participants, for example, from China and the USA.

The numbers involved in the congress are huge: +850 speakers for 830 presentations (425 pre-recorded, 67 virtual delivered live and 338 on site), 1.200 abstracts were submitted, 11 break-out parallels rooms, 12 industry symposia, 3 hands-on sessions with simulation and perfusion machines and an exhibition area with +30 sponsors. All the scientific sessions were recorded and streamed online. A social program was also organised involving a President’s Dinner at the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnica cloister[1], a welcome cocktail, some networking events at MiCo and a Board Dinner.
