Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC) *HONG KONG, HONG KONG Visit the Venue to read more
It is my great pleasure to announce that the 26th International Congress of The Transplantation Society will be held in Hong Kong from the 18th to the 23rd August 2016. This meeting marks a major milestone for the Society as we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary. The Society has recognized for some time that from a transplant perspective, this is definitely the Asian century. In demonstrating a TTS commitment to worldwide access to transplantation, we can think of no better place to hold this meeting than in one of the major gateways to Asia.
We have brought together a high profile program committee with the aim of developing a broad program covering a diverse range of topics, from the best cutting edge science to the latest controversies in ethics and public policy. Issues relevant to developing transplant programs and organ donation will be a highlight for many of you.
Hong Kong is an exciting destination, as the perfect meeting place between East and West, reflecting the cultural mix of the territory's Chinese roots with influences from its time as a British colony. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, located on the magnificent and renowned Victoria Harbour, is a wonderful venue adjacent and connected to two renowned hotels and in close vicinity to several others, in the Wan Chai neighborhood right in the heart of Hong Kong Island.
TTS 2016 will mark a new era for TTS educational congresses; join us for what promises to be a stimulating gathering of great minds and forward-thinking ideas. Together with TTS Council and our entire organizing committee, we look forward to meeting you in Asia's world city!
