Welcome words from ISBT
As you can imagine, we have also prepared a social program of the kind that you have come to expect from ISBT and that we have all missed during the pandemic! By connecting the young and not-so-young clinicians and scientists, transfusion practitioners and donor experts plus many other categories of delegates, we help to bring together the teams required to answer tomorrow’s questions in transfusion medicine.
After the congress, we hope that you will also find some time to explore this unique city and its lovely Scandinavian surroundings. Gothenburg offers 18 hours of daylight the week before midsummer so prepare to be enlightened. For the brave, midnight sun experiences are awaiting you after the meeting, just a bit further north.
Looking forward to seeing you in Gothenburg!
