AO Trauma World Meeting

Postponed: After careful evaluation, AO Trauma has decided to postpone the AO Trauma World Meeting in Madrid to September 6-9, 2020.

Important notice:

After careful evaluation AO Trauma has decided to postpone this year’s AO Trauma World Meeting in Madrid to a date later this year.

  • AO Trauma is evaluating the possibility of a date later this year
  • All registration fees will be reimbursed for those who can not come to the rescheduled event
  • We will communicate the new dates as soon as possible

The AO has been carefully monitoring the global situation relating to COVID-19, and the potential impact on our event has changed significantly over the past few days, making it difficult to assess and mitigate any potential risks.

For AO Trauma, the well-being of our community is paramount, and any decisions regarding our World Meeting prioritize the health and safety of our members, partners, exhibitors, and staff.

That is why we have decided to postpone the AO Trauma World Meeting to a date later this year. We cannot currently confirm the exact date but will let you know as soon as possible. 

This decision was not taken lightly. We evaluated the situation from a variety of standpoints: the health and well-being of all participants, travel disruption, the current situation in Spain, and the ability to forecast COVID-19's potential impact on the region and globally for the coming months.

We understand that this is a disappointment. We want to reassure you that all registration fees will be reimbursed in full for any participants who cannot attend later this year.

If you have already registered for the World Meeting, please contact for more information. 

If you have other questions or concerns, please contact us directly at and we will be happy to answer you.

We thank you in advance for your understanding. 

While we are disappointed that we will be unable to host you in April, we hope to welcome you later this year.
