Gastro2019 Conference will be held at TSB Arena Wellington 27-29 November
Of behalf of the organising committee I would like to extend a warm and windy (pun intended), invitation to you all to join us in Wellington for the next NZSG ASM. We have a fantastic line up of speakers ; Prof Charles Bernstein from Canada, A/Prof David Hewitt, Laureate Prof Nicholas Talley and A/Prof Simone Strasser from Australia, Prof Mingyan Cai from China, and Dr Jeremy Woodward from Cambridge, UK. Key note nursing speakers are Dr Ann Framp from Australia and Lydia White from Oxford, UK. Our additional international speakers include Dr Nick Burgess from Australia and Prof Chris Mulder from Amsterdam.
The website and registration can be found here.
Wellington has been voted the coolest little capital in the world and it is widely known that it can’t be beaten on a good day! For all those other days, there’s still the cafés, restaurants, craft breweries, arts and culture scene, Weta workshop, Te Papa, Cuba Street, Zealandia and the vibrant Wellington waterfront which will be the location for our conference.
The conference dinner will be a highlight as usual and this year’s theme “What we do in the shadows” will be sure to bring out everyone’s dark side!
This year is “the year of the trainee” and so we will be having a special event on the Friday afternoon after the conference for our gastroenterology registrars to mix and mingle with some of our keynote and local speakers to help them further their career planning.
Look forward to seeing you all in Wellington,
