Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Barcelona Breast Meeting (BBM 2020) held in Auditori AXA in, Barcelona on October 8th-9th, 2020.

We have an exciting scientific program that we are sure you will find dynamic and diverse. The focus for 2020 is searching for the ideal results with maximum patient safety, with Faculty from all over the world providing their expertise, tips and tricks on surgical technique.

We are planning to perform live surgery to highlight trends and innovations in these fields and there will be a video-surgery session showing tips and tricks of some of the leading world experts. We are sure you will find this year´s program particularly motivating and inspiring.

In conjunction with the Barcelona Breast Meeting 2020, this year we are holding the 9th World Symposium on Lymphedema Surgery (WSLS). We are organizing this symposium together with Prof. David Chang (Chicago University Hospital) and Prof. Ming Huei Cheng (Chang Gun Memorial Hospital) and Prof Isao Koshima (Hiroshima Hospital) who will

.

discuss the indications for this highly complex procedure and present the techniques used and progress to date.

After the COVID-19 crisis, we have realised that more than ever, the desire to meet and socialise is inherit to human beings. Nothing will replace the impact of face-to-face events.

We know that on-site BBM atmosphere could never be replaced by an online event. For this reason we have decided to organise the BBM following all the post-pandemic prevention measures: limited capacity, protective measures, disinfection spaces, individual catering, and much more…

Looking forward to welcome you all in October!
Yours sincerely,

J. Farhadi & J. Masià
BBM 2020 Co-Chairmen
