Preliminary programme of MEDsport Symposium 2020

Dear friends,

it´s our pleasure to invite you to the MEDsport Symposium 2020 (MSS 2020) to be held from 11 to 13 June 2020 in the Congress Hotel Tereziánský dvůr in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.

Despite there being several months left until the event, the concept of the 11th symposium is ready. This year´s symposium will be a most auspicious and specialized event in podiatry from the point of view of physicians, physiotherapists and other specialists in the field. We have added an extra day to be able to share good practices and compare our knowledge with ideas emanating from the US and Europe. 

Preliminary programme:

Thursday 11. 6. 2020

The MSS 2020 will be opened by the Schein (Germany) workshop, which will introduce the new developments in podiatry (foot and motion diagnostics, insoles, shoes and other aids). Recognized specialists from Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia will present their lectures, lead workshops and provide an open space for challenging discussions. The lectures will be interpreted from English into Czech. A new PodoCam 2.0 will be introduced, among others.

In the evening we will enjoy a barbecue and live music on the hotel terrace.

Friday 12. 6. 2020

International Day. World renowned experts from the USA and Germany will present their lectures. We have arranged simultaneous interpreting from English into Czech. Among the key speakers will be Emily Splichal (NY, USA), a specialist in podiatry and foot physiotherapy, and Robert Haimerl (Grafing, Germany), a sports physiotherapist and specialist in prosthetics.  

Both are outstanding and internationally recognized lecturers who will present several unique topics. We have also prepared a few more surprises to be introduced later. 

We will enjoy a traditional evening in the Drak Puppet Theatre for adults, followed by a buffet dinner in the Puppet Labyrinth, where we will have the chance to taste excellent Moravian wines from Špillar Winery, Hodonice.

Friday 12. 6. 2020

The day will be devoted to Czech and Slovak specialists who will present invited lectures about the foot in terms of the holistic medical spectrum. Lectures will cover foot diagnostics and various other fields of medicine, e.g. orthopedics, neurology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, rehabilitation, podiatry, etc. Most of the presenters have already confirmed their participation; however, we keep looking for new topics to include. We will start revealing and introducing individual speakers at the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020.

Towards the end of the symposium there will be the traditional tombola where each participant of the MSS 2020 can win interesting prizes.

An integral part of the event will be an exhibition of about 10-15 partner companies. We also plan several small workshops in other Congress Hotel rooms.

We would like to inform you that the symposium is not sponsored by the EU or from any other funds. Our only profit is the satisfaction of our visitors, lecturers and us – the organizers.

Congress fees:

- Thursday CZK 600, Friday CZK 2000, Saturday CZK 1300 (prices valid until 31. 5. 2020, incl. VAT)

- Participants can register for individual conference days
