In addition to the World Congress of Gastroenterology held by the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) every two years, there has been increasing interest shown by WGO Member Societies to secure the endorsement and support of WGO for smaller meetings with a regional focus, including both broadly themed meetings and congresses and also monothematic workshop offerings. In order to meet this growing need, WGO is collaborating with its Member Societies and regional associations to host joint meetings in-between World Congresses.



Future Meetings

For those societies interested in exploring the potential to partner with WGO for a meeting in a non-Congress year (i.e. 2018 and 2020), please contact Caley Mutrie, WGO Executive Director, at for further details. More information about bids for WGO International Conferences is also available here.
