Welcome Message

Dear supporters and industry partners of ESPGHAN,

On behalf of the ESPGHAN we are delighted to invite you to the 50th Annual Congress of ESPGHAN to be held from Wednesday 10 to Saturday 13 May 2017, in Prague, Czech Republic.

Every year the ESPGHAN congress attracts the key opinion leaders in the field of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition from across Europe and all five continents, turning it into the largest conference of its kind worldwide. The previous 49th congress held in Athens was attended by more than 4.000 delegates, hosting 40 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.

Prague, the city of a Hundred Spires on the Vltava River is known to people from all over the world and is one of the most beautiful cities and attractive meeting destinations in Europe. Prague has always been a crossroad of the most important trading routes, as well as a cultural and political center of Europe. One of its major landmarks, Charles Bridge, symbolizes the historical connection between the east & west that made Prague a place where elements of Slavic, German, Italian, and Jewish cultures merged to create a picturesque city with a unique, magical atmosphere.
Let Prague inspire you, just as it inspired many significant artists and scientists in the past without whose discoveries and inventions we could hardly imagine our lives today. With its rich cultural and historical atmosphere the capital city of Czech Republic is providing an extraordinary location for what promises to be another exciting and memorable Annual Meeting of ESPGHAN for all those attending.

We invite your participation and offer you numerous opportunities to expose your company and its products and services to leading paediatric gastroenterologists, hepatologists, nutritionists and related professionals. You will find many options and further information in this sponsorship prospectus.

We look forward to welcoming you in Prague!
