SPAEN Annual Conference: Broad range of contents, one common objective
Since 2010 SPAEN is holding an annual conference bringing together sarcoma groups, experts, pharma and research from all over Europe and around the globe. In the last years a growing number of participants demonstrated the increasing interest in the sarcoma field, a rare cancer. In 2018 SPAEN and European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) had agreed to combine their meetings and SPAEN held its Annual Conference just before the ESMO GIST & Sarcoma Symposium. Approx. 70 participants from over 25 countries including patient advocates, leading European sarcoma experts and representatives of the healthcare industry joined the two-day meeting.
The two day SPAEN Conference 2019 (1. - 3. February in Athens/Greece) will focus on research and treatment, advocacy and capacity building. The SPAEN conferences have become a great opportunity to learn, share and grow - for patient advocates and experts. During the last years, it became clear that there is a common sense between patient advocates, sarcoma experts and the industry: By working together, research in sarcomas can be conducted more quickly and new treatments can be introduced faster. Irrespective of the their role, all stakeholders are highly committed to playing their part in “Changing the World” and doing all that they can to achieve our common belief and objective: Together We Can Make A Difference for Those Affected By Sarcomas!

- 8th SPAEN Annual Conference 2018 Milan/Italy
The SPAEN Annual Conference 2018 was held - for the first time ever - in conjunction with a professional meeting. SPAEN and European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) have agreed to combine their meetings and hold the SPAEN conference just before the ESMO GIST & Sarcoma Symposium (4-7 Feburary 2018, Marriott Hotel Milan). It is known as an excellent congress for international networking and collaboration, featuring discussions with the key opinion leaders in these rare tumours. Combining the patient advocates' meeting with the experts' congress was of great value and brought a lot of synergies for both parties. Further collaboration is agreed.
