“Technological advances in endoscopy over the past years have been spectacular” states Dr Nageshwar D. Reddy, congress president. “WEO’s congress will recognize these achievements and in parallel address the increasing complexity faced by endoscopists today”.
Dr Jean-Francois Rey, WEO President-Elect, has been appointed scientific chair of ENDO 2017. When asked what he personally felt about the congress, he enthused “A global platform for dialogue is essential and India the perfect location. It is time to bring together the endoscopy community, to stimulate international exchange and to establish best practices. That is why ENDO 2017 is so important”. Societies from all areas of the world partner with WEO in the development of the program.
Hyderabad: the perfect setting to kick-start change
Hyderabad, capital of the newly appointed state of Telangana, is home to the world-renowned Asian Institute of Gastroenterology (AIG), which will act as co-partner in this endeavor and head the local organizing committee. AIG organizes bi-annual international symposia and participants from previous events can attest the quality of the events
Furthermore, Hyderabad is the ideal location in view of its proximity and direct connectivity to many Asia-Pacific cities, with a wellestablished network of hotels and a top-quality airport. With such promising features, ENDO 2017 will be a landmark event and will set the stage for future world endoscopy congresses, achieving both immediate and lasting change.
