BeSARPP Annual Meeting 2023

On behalf of the BeSARPP Board and the Scientific Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the BeSARPP Annual Meeting which will be held at SQUARE in Brussels on 17-18 November, 2023.

Each year, our Society succeeds in designing a truly magnificent scientific program during our Annual Meeting in November. The topic of this year’s meeting is: The Faith of Perioperative Care.

Looking at the number of anesthesiologists attending the meeting each year, this has proven to be a highly successful format for many years. This will undoubtedly also be the case for this year’s edition: World renowned experts will share knowledge and provide science-based opinions about key topics in anesthesia.

As last year, we will schedule the ethical program on Friday.
