AFAS Open Meetings

ESSKA-AFAS holds an open meeting every two years, the most recent being 21-22 September 2017 in Bordeaux, France.

Open meetings are open to members and non-members alike.

The next open meeting will be at the ESSKA Speciality Days to be held 8-9 November 2019 in Madrid.


In 2019 ESSKA is launching a brand new meeting concept “ESSKA Speciality Days”. This exciting new format will bring together the four specialist Sections of ESSKA (AFAS – Ankle and Foot Associates, EKA – European Knee Associates, ESA – European Shoulder Associates and ESMA – European Sports Medicine Associates) and will take place on 8-9 November 2019 in Madrid.

This meeting will offer a ‘best of both worlds’ scenario: There will be four distinct scientific programmes for each Section, there will be zoned areas for networking within the Specialist Sections yet there will be a joint Industry exhibition and many opportunities for networking and educational exchange with your peers from all the Specialist groups.

View the programme overview here. More information will be available in due course.

Mark your calendars now for 8-9 November 2019!
