In-person Networking

On-site networking after two long years of solely virtual events? Your wish is our command. 

Get networking on-site in Vienna!

We are delighted to provide our in-person UEG Week delegates with a wide array of exciting opportunities to meet, network, engage, and truly sit down together to reconnect or perhaps connect for the first time! 

We give you many possibilities to bring your online myUEG Community relationships into real life by meeting face-to-face with other myUEG Associates and myUEG Young GI Associates alike!

Make sure to utilise My Connect (UEG’s free, exclusive and secure networking feature for searching and linking with international digestive health professionals) prior to UEG Week to further develop your connections and then meet in-person at the congress!

myUEG Community Area 

This is your area, myUEG Community! We want you to use it to your advantage by utilising all of our available in-person offerings. 

Meet UEG, Member societies, other associations, and patient organisations! We are truly all part of the same myUEG Community, and now is your chance to embrace the opportunity to connect and relate to those within the vast and diverse field of digestive health.

Take the time to sit down at our many, easily accessible My Connect Boxes! Our brand new My Connect Boxes can be used for informal get-togethers or meetings with a bit of privacy. As a bonus – no reservation is needed! They are available on a first come first served basis.
