Dear industry partners,
The ESGE will hold its 26th Annual Congress in Antalya, Turkey on 18-21 October 2017. The meeting will also be the joint annual meetings of the Middle East Society for Gynecological Endoscopy (MESGE), International Society for Gynecological Endoscopy (ISGE) and the Turkish Society for Gynecological Endoscopy (TSGE). Furthermore, the meeting will be participated by the Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy (APAGE), Indian Association of Gynaecological Endoscopists (IAGE) and the other specialist societies of Turkey.
Antalya is a popular town on the southern coast of Anatolia which is at the crossroads between Europe and Asia. Anatolia has been home to many diverse civilisations and is a real gate between the East and West. Hence, the 26th Annual Congress will be ‘East Meets West’. We hope the Joint ESGE/ISGE/MESGE/TSGE Congress will build bridges between the clinicians, healthcare providers, researchers, innovators and manufacturers from the ‘West’ and the ‘East’ and it will be the ideal platform to exchange ideas and experience, and demonstrate technology and innovation.
During this Congress we expect to enhance the programme by providing the latest navigational technology, by offering hands-on training and testing sessions, live surgery, sponsored symposia and tutorials and the programme will be co-ordinated with parallel sessions scheduled to meet the needs of all interests. At the congress centre, the scientific sessions and exhibition area will be within easy access to each other to increase interaction between the delegates and the industry.
The beautiful town of Antalya on the Mediterranean Sea has been home to many scientific national and international meetings over the last several decades and is easily accessible from all major European and Asian destinations.
The ESGE, ISGE, MESGE and TSGE would sincerely welcome your participation to ensure that together we can make this congress a successful experience for all.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Antalya!
