Obesity is a Pandemic, too

Dear friends and colleagues

The COVID-19 Pandemic is still affecting our lives and the lives of many worldwide.
Hence we must not forget to care for our obese patients, who are currently at
high risk for developing severe symptoms of the disease which may contribute to increasing mortality rates.

In Germany, it has been proven that strict management is important and effective for the confinement of the disease, and therefore, careful instructions of hygiene are strictly applied everywhere.
Therefore, we look enthusiastically forward to holding the 11th Frankfurter Meeting as a live-event. We have booked the entire location of Kap Europa, which normally allows up to 4000 people, and we are pleased to announce that we are allowed to have a limited capacity for 300 participants, speakers and industry representatives, onsite.

We look anxiously forward to meeting all our friends and colleagues who are invited to attend either our live event or our virtual livestream, which is designed for our guests that might be affected by travel restrictions.

We will offer a hybrid-meeting: Live-Transmissions via online platform and also an onsite meeting.

In addition, we will perform live surgeries from our clinic, as well as have live transmissions from all over the world.

For all registered participants we have a special highlight for you:
At the end of the event all oral sessions of your booked days will be available for streaming online for 30 days.

Maximum percussions for protection and care will be followed during the entire event and safe distances of 1,5 meters will be carefully considered within our seating plans, sessions, and social events.

We hope to see as many of you as possible. Until then, Let’s stay strong!

Sylvia Weiner & Moustafa Elshafei
