Novel Coronavirus Update | March 10, 2020

In yesterday's post, we advised you to cancel your hotel reservations. At this time, we have heard from several individuals that they have received push back from the hotel. SRS staff are working diligently with the hotel to manage the situation and allow attendees to receive refunds for the reservations.

Conversations with the hotel are ongoing, and we hope to have a resolution by the end of the week. At this time, we recommend delaying your hotel cancellation and refund request. SRS will provide an update by the end of the week.

Novel Coronavirus Update | March 9, 2020

Ensuring the health, safety, and security of our attendees is our top priority. Today, the Greek Government has issued a ban on all meetings for the next four weeks due to the ever evolving Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Due to these issues that are outside of our control, the SRS leadership has made the very tough decision to cancel the 27th International Meeting on Advanced Spine Techniques (IMAST).

At this time we are still exploring a variety of options to bring you the excellent education that was planned, and will provide details as we have them.

Anyone who was registered for IMAST will have their registration automatically cancelled and refunded at 100%. As there are a number of refunds to be issued, please be aware that cancellations may take up to three weeks. Registrants will receive confirmation of cancellation within 24 hours of it being processed.
