Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is indeed our great honour to warmly welcome you all to the 2nd International Spine care Conference SPINE20, which will be held 17th and 18th September 2021 as a hybrid event, in Rome, Italy. The Conference will be organized around the theme “Spine20: Care for People’s  Health and Prosperity” and aims to promotes top level research and to learn and discuss some of the latest trends in these research fields through close interaction with distinguished and prominent leaders who excel in the spine care field. 

SPINE20 can best be described as a global spine alliance think tank. It brings spine interested professional societies from all over the world together aiming to promote a spine care of excellence. 

SPINE20 Inaugural Meeting is created to establish a sustainable advocacy and policy group that will result in improved understanding of global spine health issues, the need for improved inter professional education, access to care, treatment and prevention of disability for spine patients. The goal is to optimize spine care options for patients throughout the world by making recommendations to G20 members and Sherpas

Please note that as the number of lives affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the world is still high, the health and safety of our congress attendees remains our primary concern. The pandemic changed almost everything. During the last year we have learned a lot about virtual communication as well as found some advantages of on-line meetings.

Although  we all would be happy to meet each other face-to-face, together with the local authorities in Italy, we have concluded that it is safe to organise our hybrid meeting in hybrid format  (Onsite event&Online event) and have adopted the necessary safety measures.

For regulatory reasons, the capacity of the venue has been reduced to about 50%.

For those of you who will not be able to travel, we are putting in place the option to participate virtually to the congress, thanks to an online platform, where sessions in digital format will be made available for both the live and the online attendees. We are building on the positive experience of last year, we will enhance online interactivity and participation, with a new digital platform with improved functionalities.
