Dear Members of the Press & Media,

We are delighted to announce that press registration for the 7th European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC 2021) is now open.

ESOC 2021 will be held virtually on 1-3 September 2021 and feature world-class science, research, and discussion from our dynamic field.

ESOC is the leading forum in Europe for advances in research and clinical care of patients with cerebrovascular diseases and the meeting is moving from strength to strength. ESOC is recognised for its excellent scientific programme, which includes presentations of major clinical trials, state-of-the-art lectures by renowned clinicians and researchers, and updates on the latest guidelines. Building on the success of ESO-WS0 2020 – online – ESOC 2021 will be utilising an improved virtual conference platform that will enable more live sessions and networking possibilities.

We recognise the huge value that journalists and media members bring to ESOC 2021, helping us to bridge the gap between major scientific advancements and healthcare professionals or members of the public. With this in mind, we have developed a comprehensive programme of activities dedicated for registered press members at this year’s conference.

Two virtual press briefings will be held prior to the conference on 30 and 31 August 2021 respectively, featuring the most exciting research due to be presented at the meeting. Holding these press conferences, under embargo, prior to ESOC 2021 will provide press members with a unique opportunity to gather information and conduct one-to-one interviews with investigators and researchers before the conference begins.

In addition to gaining exclusive access to the virtual press briefings, registered press members will gain access to the full scientific programme and receive a pre-conference press pack, containing tailored information for journalists and the official ESOC press releases.

Press registration is free of charge and strongly encouraged ahead of ESOC 2021, as registering during the conference may result in delays in obtaining accreditation and access to the scientific programme. Press registration can be obtained by emailing the below information to
