COMFA 2022 Annual Meeting dates confirmed: 10-12 October 2022

We are happy to announce that the Annual Meeting is scheduled to take place on 10-12 October 2022 (Monday to Wednesday) in Porto, Portugal. Please pencil in these dates before we provide you with the final confirmation of the venue.

The meeting will serve a monumental purpose in terms of scientific goals of the Action serving as a kick-off point for the upcoming Delphi process bringing together researchers, clinicians, patients, their carers, and the industry for consensus on the core outcomes for food allergy. Please look out for future newsletters, as we will be sending further information on the matter in due course.

Please be advised that these dates were selected to avoid overlap with the World Allergy Congress 2022 taking place in Istanbul on 13-15 October 2022.
