Message from the Presidents
It is with great pleasure that the World Endoscopy Organization (WEO) invites you to ENDO 2020, the 2nd World Congress of GI Endoscopy. ENDO 2020 will be held on March 7 - 10, 2020, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and for the first time brings together experts from around the world and the Americas to connect the world of endoscopy. WEO has joined forces with the Brazilian Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SOBED) to host the second edition of this unique event. The Interamerican Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SIED) has also joined as collaborating partner holding the 24th Pan American Congress of Digestive Endoscopy within ENDO 2020.
As a result of this joint effort, and with the support of our international scientific partners around the world, ENDO 2020 will present a 4-day comprehensive and innovative scientific program. With more than 30 specialized symposia, including the symposia for our global scientific partner societies, ENDO 2020 expects to attract more than 5000 delegates from all over the world.
At ENDO 2020, you will have the opportunity to attend lectures and debates addressing relevant local and global topics related to gastroenterology, hepatology, and oncology from the endoscopist’s point of view. A highlight of the ENDO 2020 program will be the live endoscopy demonstration sessions over 3 full days of the congress broadcast to the venue from Hyderabad, India and Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In addition, you will be able to join comprehensive hands-on training sessions that will cover basic and advanced procedures during two consecutive days. Other educational events include the advanced diagnostic endoscopy and the video capsule endoscopy training courses and other expert meetings. ENDO 2020 will also offer a 1-day nurses program and a 2-day pediatric digestive endoscopy course.
The official language of the congress is English and certain sessions will have simultaneous translation into Portuguese and Spanish.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2nd World Congress of GI Endoscopy and the 24th Pan American Congress of Digestive Endoscopy, ENDO 2020 in Rio de Janeiro!
