Dear Members, Colleagues,
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has kept most of us very busy throughout 2020 and will continue to do so. In order to provide the best possible planning security for all involved, the DGTI Board of Directors has decided to also hold the 54th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Transfusion Medicine and Immunohematology in digital format.
We will incorporate your feedback and the experiences of last year's congress in order to provide you with a unique conference experience once again. The program is currently being adapted to the digital format, including shortening the scientific sessions to 60 minutes.
Detailed information will be successively made available online over the next few days. As usual, we will also provide daily updates at www.dgti-kongress.de or simply use our conference newsletter: www.dgti-kongress.de/index.php.
We look forward to an exciting professional exchange with you in September!
Your DGTI Board
and your Conventus Team
