WORLD CONGRESS OF GASTROENTEROLOGY

September 21 to 24, 2019

The next World Congress of Gastroenterology will be organized with World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) and Turkish Society of Gastroenterology (TSG). It will take place in Istanbul, Turkey.

Istanbul, the only city in the world built on 2 continents, has a strategic setting forming the city’s destiny as an imperial capital for nearly 1600 years, for Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. This metropolis proud of its rich history and unequaled natural beauty offers a friendly welcome and genuine hospitality. It will be hard to imagine a more historic part of the world as a focal point for the meetings and congresses in Istanbul. Seated on the Bosphorus, some of the most fascinating history will unfold before your eyes, as you visit this magnificent city.

Recent years have seen dramatic developments in the clinical investigation of digestive function. In relation with those developments, the WGO-TSG Istanbul 2019 congress will include keynote presentations, oral presentations, poster presentations, and exhibitions.
