Da Balaia 2020, 28 September – 1 October – CANCELLED due to Covid 19

With a very heavy heart, we have to announce cancellation of Da Balaia 2020 meeting.

We have delayed our decision about going ahead with the conference up to now as the pandemic situation and the level of restrictions have been changing every week.

Having taken all the current information and guidelines available into account (travel, social distancing, potential second wave etc) and also the result of our survey among previous participants of Da Balaia conferences – cancellation and postponement to 2021 is the only option.

We are sorry to disappoint people who have started making arrangements, hopefully you can have a nice holiday instead or get your money back. The Travel Designer promises to honour any of their deposits to roll over to the meeting next year, if you wish to participate then. We are trying to book Club Med for similar dates in 2021.

DOCTORSUPDATES have been providing ‘EDUCATION IN A PERFECT LOCATION’ for over 25 years. The meetings take place in the Alps in winter and in the Algarve in autumn. The first Anaesthesia Update was held in 1989 in the beautiful French Alpine resort of La Clusaz with less than 50 delegates and very little snow. The winter meeting was subsequently moved higher in the Alps, first to Belle Plagne and then in 2008 to Val d’Isere, one of the world’s premier ski resorts. We now regularly welcome more than 500 doctors from UK and other countries to its superb purpose built conference centre.
