EGS Congress 2020 Cancellation FAQs 

Q. I previously registered for EGS 2020 but I am unable to attend on the new dates, will I receive a refund? 

A. As a consequence of the postponement of the EGS congress caused by the spread of the SARS-CoV- 2, in case a delegate already registered will not be able to attend the congress on the new dates, the paid registration will be refunded if the refund request is received before 30 June 2020 (€ 30,00 will be deducted to cover administrative expenses).
