Dear Colleagues,

After a careful evaluation of the COVID-19 Omicron and Delta plus variants spreading across the globe, the Barcelona Breast Meeting organizing committee is forced to make the decision of not celebrating the BBM 2022, scheduled on 9th – 11th March 2022, to avoid possible future restrictions.

We have consulted the celebration of BBM 2022 with a number of distinguished medical experts and, unfortunately, all of them has advised us against holding an indoor, in-person event next March. Beyond the uncertainty of the next few months, their biggest concern is the rise of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, coupled with a growing understanding around the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines after six months.

The safety, health and well-being of our participants, faculty members, and industry partners will always be the highest priority for us. This is why we believe that canceling BBM 2022 is the most prudent decision at this time.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants and industry partners for their understanding, continuous support and flexibility.

.

It goes without saying that anyone who completed and paid their registration for BBM 2022 will be fully reimbursed.

The new dates scheduled for the 2023 meeting are 8-10th March 2023. Hopefully, in 2023, we will have recovered our normal lives and we will be able to organize our meeting again.

Looking forward to see you all again in Barcelona in 2023.

Yours sincerely,

J. Masià & J. Farhadi
BBM 2022 Co-Chairmen
