The idea to have a joint meeting bringing together several spine societies at the same time and at the same place originated around the turn of the century.
The SpineWeek committee was mandated with the practical organization of such a conference, and this led to the first SpineWeek meeting which was held in Porto, Portugal in 2004. It was well received by individual participants, the involved scientific spine societies and by the supporting MedTech industry. Two more SpineWeeks followed: Geneva (Switzerland) in 2008 and Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in 2012.
One of the remarkable evolutions noted from one SpineWeek to the next, was the increase of participants coming from Asia. In fact, in Amsterdam more than half the attendees were Asian. This incited the SpineWeek committee to move east for the 2016 SpineWeek meeting, and we are pleased to announce the conference from 16 to 20 May, 2016 in Singapore.
Next to the usual participating spine societies such as the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS), the North American Spine Society (NASS) and the Latin American spine societies (SILACO and BSS), we now welcome an array of Asian spine societies. SpineWeek meetings have been at the origin of many a scientific collaboration bringing together clinicians and scientists from around the world and from very different scientific societies.
We look forward to a truly exciting week in Singapore, both at scientific and social levels.
Join us for this first Asian SpineWeek meeting, and spread the word!

Marina Bay Sands
The Marina Bay Sand Convention Centre is located at the famous Marina Bay in the heart of Singapore’s city centre and Financial and Central Business District. It takes only a 20-minute’s taxi ride to Changi Airport.
The Marina Bay Sands complex contains the MBS Hotel offering 2,561 hotel rooms, a mall, an Art & Science museum, two Sands Theatres, seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating pavilions and a 340m-long SkyPark that features a 150m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world’s largest public cantilevered platform.
The Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre is Asia’s leading destination for congresses. It is located opposite the street of the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel to which it is connected by one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore.
It goes without saying that Marina Bay Sands iconic design dominates Singapore’s skyline.
SpineWeek will use the whole third floor of the convention centre for the congress part and level 1 for the exhibition. Escalators connect both floors directly.

Dear Company Representatives,
It is our honor to announce Spineweek 2016 to be organized at the iconic Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in Singapore 16-20 May 2016.
After three successful editions of Spineweek, the 4th edition will be organized in Singapore thanks to the increased interest from Asia-Pacific region for this congress and with participation of important societies as the Indian and Chinese national spine societies.
Thanks to the above we might expect a further growth in the number of participants in SpineWeek also taking into account that the selected venue is a world-renowned iconic location.
We look forward to welcoming you all at SpineWeek 2016
The SpineWeek Committee
