SSO HUB, a Dynamic New Experience 

SSO HUB is a new and interactive experience that replaces the conventional exhibit hall. The HUB features five clinical zones—Breast/Endocrine, HPB, Melanoma/Sarcoma, Colorectal/Upper GI and Immuno-Oncology—each with a theater where posters, videos and meet-the-expert sessions will take place. All of this is in addition to the HUB main stage where SSO 2020 attendees will view debates, challenging case reviews, industry spotlights, clinical trial spotlights and team competitions.
In addition to this highly anticipated, invigorating new environment created by SSO HUB, SSO 2020 will also offer the same exceptional educational programming that attendees have come to expect. With 27 parallel and symposium sessions, four Great Debates, four featured lecturers, interactive HUB presentations and a wealth of opportunities for attendees to connect with current and future collaborators, SSO 2020 will be the catalyst that enables you to push progress further.
