Dear friends and colleagues,


It is with deep sadness that we announce the postponement of the 3rd Balkan Rhino Forum, that was scheduled to take place in Athens, 7th to 9th April 2022.


We know that this will come as a big disappointment, not only to the speakers, participants and attendees but also to the whole Balkan rhinologist community.


This is not a decision we have taken lightly, on the contrary, it was forced upon us: the recent unleashing of a war “in our doorstep”, with one million refugees and devastation affecting friends and relatives, makes the planning of a Balkan congress more than a challenge – probably irrelevant. Since safety and well-being of all participants remains our top priority during such an unprecedented global situation, we feel that this is the right way to proceed.


We would like to thank you once again for your continued and strong support. Congress secretariat will be reaching out directly to participants providing full refunds of any registration fees paid.


We will be holding the event in Greece next year, hopefully in a safer and more peaceful environment. Stay tuned for updates.


On behalf of the Organizing Committee
