Reasons to Attend


Nothing beats a real life, face-to face meet up. Meet new colleagues from all over the world and catch up with old acquaintances – it’s not just about you meeting the right people – it’s also about the right people meeting you.

Knowledge and Takeaways

FFN 2020 provides a unique platform to learn about new technical developments, state-of-the-art interventions, international research and to interact with leading clinicians, researchers and other professional health workers and stake holders. If there is something specific that you want to know, there are many opportunities for you to get the answers you seek.

Meet Like-Minded Individuals

There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. When you sit in an auditorium, you discover that you’re not alone in wanting to disseminate globally the best multidisciplinary practice in preventing and managing fragilty fractures. That energy is lacking in all online learning channels, regardless of how much chatter there may be around a hashtag.

Learn Something new Outside your Field
