Meetings information

In the current crisis, medical associations must lead by example.

The health and safety of our community is our top priority and our thoughts are with affected patients and healthcare staff. The rapid spread of the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) poses unprecedented challenges to all of us. We proceed in parallel with national and international health authorities. 
We have decided not to hold meetings for the remainder of 2020. We will conduct virtual meetings wherever possible.

Nationwide lockdowns imposed on many countries have required the cancellation or postponement of several congresses. 

UEG Week Virtual 2020 will take place from October 11-13, 2020

Best of Postgraduate Teaching from UEG Week will take place from November 27-28, 2020

Let’s meet, exchange and evolve virtually for the best gastroenterology congress in the world!
