Welcome Message

Dear supporters and industry partners of ESPGHAN,

On behalf of ESPGHAN we are delighted to invite you to be a part of the 51st Annual Congress of ESPGHAN to be held from Wednesday 9 May 2018 to Saturday 12 May 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Every year, ESPGHAN congress attracts the key opinion leaders in the field of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition from across Europe and all five continents, turning it into the largest conference of its kind worldwide.
The previous 50th congress held in Prague was attended by more than 4.700 delegates, from 96 countries, hosting 50 industry partners at its exhibition halls. Thus, ESPGHAN provides an ideal platform for communication between healthcare professionals, researchers, innovators, and providers of products and services related to the field.

The 2018 host city of Geneva is ideally located in the heart of Europe. Nestled between nearby Alpine peaks and the hilly terrain of the Jura Mountains, the city of Geneva is situated in the bay where the Rhône leaves Lake Geneva. As a host to many international organisations including the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross, the city is known as the Capital of Peace and famous for its humanitarian tradition and cosmopolitan flair. Let the charming and international environment of Geneva be the inspiration for joining the 51st Annual Meeting and
celebrating with us the golden anniversary of the ESPGHAN society.

The 51st Annual meeting promises to be the most memorable meeting of the past years and we look forward to share with you in Geneva a glimpse at ESPGHAN’s very promising future.
We invite your participation and offer you numerous opportunities to expose your company and its products and services to leading paediatric gastroenterologists, herpetologists, nutritionists and related professionals.

We look forward to welcoming you in Geneva!
