Can you advance the highlights for the next edition?

Professor Michael Manns, President of UEG, comments, “For scientists and researchers, UEG Week provides a unique platform for exchanging knowledge and information on all areas of digestive health. I am personally looking forward to the presentation on new diagnostic criteria for gastrointestinal disorders, and other highlights include the very popular live endoscopy sessions and ‘Today's Science; Tomorrow's Medicine' series."

What is the participant's profile?

We encourage a variety of delegates from all over the world to attend UEG Week, and the topics covered will be of interest to the entire gastrointestinal community. The congress provides innovative seminars for both experienced medical practitioners and the experts of tomorrow, and delegates will be granted access to all scientific sessions and congress materials.

The strength of the event is its Scientific programme; do you recommend us a session in particular?

Sessions at UEG Week 2016 will cover all areas of gastroenterology and hepatology. The scientific programme includes all aspects of this speciality, ranging from basic science to clinical practice guidelines. Every year, the top five abstracts submitted to UEG Week are awarded a prize of €10,000. These exciting topics, along with an array of other new developments that are due to be presented during the congress, will provide delegates with a fantastic insight into the world of digestive health.

Finally, can you give us some participation results from the last edition?

Last year, UEG Week Barcelona 2015 saw over 13,200 delegates attend from 114 countries around the world. UEG Week will return to Barcelona next year and will be held between October 28 and November 1, 2017.
