The 19th IOTOD conference offers a range of exciting and interactive sessions, involving thought-provoking talks and expert-led panel discussions.

Date: 26th – 27th April 2021

In light of ongoing restrictions to travel and public gatherings and our commitment to the safety of our delegates, exhibitors and staff, this year’s conference will be delivered as a virtual experience.

The digital event will deliver the same thought leadership and education via interactive seminars, workshops, satellite symposia and a virtual exhibition. All content will be available to attendees on-demand, allowing you to reflect on learnings or catch up on any missed sessions at your leisure.

The European Accreditation Committee in CNS (EACIC) has granted 7 CME credits to this event.
