Belgian Week of Gastroenterology

  • BWGE 2021

    Dear Colleagues and Friends,

    We are happy to announce you that the Belgian Week of Gastroenterology 2021 will take place, if circumstances allow, at the Hilton Hotel in Antwerp from Wednesday 3 until Friday 5 March 2021.

    The practicalities of the meeting will of course largely depend on the Covid-19 situation at that time and the rules and regulations that will be applicable, based on the decisions of the authorities. The steering committee closely follows up the situation and will decide on the format of the conference in due time, with a possibility to switch to a digital conference or a hybrid conference format.

    This 33rd Edition should bring us again together, whatever the format will be, for an exciting scientific and clinical event, meeting our goals of reconciling research and clinics in a professional as well as warm and friendly ambiance, with the continuing support of our industrial partners.

    As our professional landscape and the world around us is constantly evolving, the BWGE also evolves to remain at the frontline of meetings where we can exchange knowledge and experience. In collaboration with the many scientific societies of several disciplines, illustrating the multidisciplinarity of gastroenterology and hepatology, the steering committee is working hard to put together a program that is both innovative and respects the tradition that made this conference the number One meeting in gastroenterology and hepatology in Belgium.

    The website is open for abstract submission as from October 1, 2020! Abstract submission closes on December 1, 2020 at midnight. Registrations will open as soon as the format of the congress will decided.

    More details will follow in due time!
