Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are honoured that the 30 th SECEC Annual Congress will be held in Ireland in 2021. This is the first
time that the Annual Congress has been held on our island and we look forward to welcoming you to
our capital city. We are very pleased to be able to host the meeting at the Dublin Convention
Centre, a truly world class venue.
Shoulder and elbow surgery in Ireland has been growing rapidly as a subspecialty and 2016 saw us
establish our national society, the Irish Shoulder and Elbow Society. We are therefore a relatively
“young” country in terms of national societies and we are looking forward to further growth in the
coming years. The opportunity to host one of the most important scientific meetings in this
subspecialty in the world will surely inspire our current and future generations to continue to
advance the science and art of shoulder and elbow care.
Dublin is a lively European city with its own distinct history and has much to offer our visitors. A
multitude of bars and restaurants cater to all tastes. Conference delegates will also enjoy many and
varied cultural offerings within the city and surrounding area. The local organising committee will
ensure an entertaining and engaging social programme makes your visit to Dublin memorable.
We look forward to renewing old friendships, forming new ones, hosting enlightening discussion and
debates and most of all celebrating the world of shoulder and elbow in 2021.
On behalf of our local organising committee colleagues and the Irish Shoulder and Elbow Society, we
invite you to join us in Dublin for SECEC’s 30 th Annual Congress.
