Antonio Awaits SABCS 2021!
here are always a lot of " firsts " to be experienced at
the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. First
looks at new breast cancer therapies.
First results of late-breaking clinical trials. But
attendees of this year's SABCS will experience
a " first " of a different sort.
" Last year, we successfully presented the
first ever all-virtual SABCS to a global audience,
and this year we will be presenting the first
ever hybrid SABCS - in person in San Antonio
and online around the world, " said Virginia
Kaklamani, MD, who serves as SABCS CoDirector
alongside Carlos Arteaga, MD.
" As proud as we are of what we accomplished
in response to the pandemic last year, we are
so excited and looking forward to seeing people
in person, in good health, and in San Antonio, "
Dr. Kaklamani said. " While we've all adapted
to attending online conferences and virtually
connecting with friends and colleagues, there
is nothing that can compare to being in person
where-in one place, at one time-we can learn,
share ideas, and experience together all that
SABCS has to offer. "
Whether you'll be attending virtually or in
person, Dr. Kaklamani said all SABCS attendees
will have access to all the great science they've
come to expect from the world's largest and
longest running symposium designed specifically
for breast cancer clinicians and researchers.
" No matter how you attend, you do not want
to miss the hot topics and hot-off-the-press
PROSPECTUS | Support and Exhibitor Information and Policies
trial results that will be presented this year, including the latest
findings on oral selective estrogen receptor downregulators
(SERDs) for the treatment of ER-positive breast
cancer, important updates on immunotherapy,
and emerging data on new anti-HER2 therapies, "
Dr. Kaklamani said.
" We will also hear a lot about progress in
precision medicine, including ways to potentially
tailor our treatments based on genomic
information of the tumor. And, of course, we will
once again have a COVID session exploring how
the pandemic has impacted our patients and
ourselves over the past year. "
As always, she said, SABCS 2021 is designed
to not only give attendees what they want to
learn, but also a variety of options for how they
want to learn, with four days of cutting-edge
science presented in plenary and award lectures,
mini-symposia, poster presentations, debates,
educational sessions, workshops, forums, and
panel and case discussions.
" And you'll definitely want to stick around till
the end of the meeting for the always popular
'Year in Review' session for summaries of what
the literature has shown and what advances
we've made over the last year, and the 'View
from the Trenches' session for a review of some
of the most important data and study findings
presented during SABCS 2021 along with clinical
pearls that you can take home and put into
practice, " Dr. Arteaga noted.
COVID safety at the San Antonio Convention Center
Breast Cancer Symposium attendees, exhibitors, and
staff is a top priority.
SABCS continues to monitor the Coronavirus
(COVID-19). Our priority is always on the health and
safety of our community. SABCS will base its onsite
protocols on the latest guidance from the CDC in
addition to local regulations in San Antonio. At this time,
the City of San Antonio requires masks indoors in all
its public facilities, therefore SABCS will require masks
for all in-person attendees. SABCS is not legally able to
require vaccinations but recommends everyone that is
attending the in-person event be vaccinated. Meeting
space will be set to accommodate those attendees who
prefer more personal space as well as those who prefer
to sit closer together.
Here's what you need to know:
Enhanced sanitation-SABCS will work with venue
partners to ensure the highest standard of hygiene
and cleanliness throughout the Henry B. Gonzalez
Convention Center.
* Increased hand sanitization stations throughout
the event.
* The SABCS team is working closely with our host
venue to monitor local infection rates and capacity
limits in San Antonio. SABCS plans will be in
response to these and other relevant data, as well
as to guidance from the CDC.
SABCS reserves the
right to update this plan,
as necessary, in accordance
with science
and any new guidance
issued by federal and
state authorities.
information about
onsite safety protocols
will be posted as it
becomes available. We
encourage you to visit to stay abreast of the latest updates. ■
