Dear friends and retinal specialists from Brazil and the world,
We are delighted to host our Brazilian Retinal and Vitreous Congress (BRAVS 2020) in Sao Paulo.
This year, the Congress will be held at the São Paulo Bienal, an art pavillion, inside Ibirapuera Park, in one of the most charming places in the city.
The Bienal building was designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, who also designed our capital, Brasilia, in the shape of an airplane.
Sao Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world, financial center of our country, with the best and largest medical schools in Brazil, centrally located in the country and with a rich cuisine compared to cities like London and New York. We have the largest community of Japanese descendants outside Japan in the world, with over 1 million people in greater Sao Paulo alone.
We are sure it will be a unique event, gathering about 2,000 people, in an innovative and very comfortable space, with a high level of discussions and, for the first time in Brazil, with the presence of doctor Stanislao Rizzo. Welcome to Sao Paulo and to our Retina 2020 (BRAVS 2020).
Magno A Ferreira
