The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) has announced that it will return to London in 2020. The five-day event is to be hosted at ExCeL London and is expected to bring together over 10,000 hepatologists, doctors and medical professionals, to share recent data, present studies and findings, and discuss the hottest topics on liver disease. Delegates attend from all over the world, making it a truly international networking opportunity in the capital.
London is home to hubs for scientific excellence including the Francis Crick Institute, Imperial White City, the Institute for Cancer Research and The Alan Turing Institute. The strength of the London’s medical sector has been shown with the city welcoming more and more prestigious medical events over the past few years. In 2018, the city played host to Diabetes UK, the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP), the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) Annual Congress and the British Geriatrics Society Autumn Meeting. The city is also celebrating the return of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) who are returning in 2020, in addition to financial services event, Sibos, set for this summer.
Laurence Verhagen, Managing Director, EASL said: “EASL is delighted to host the next International Congress in London in 2020, a truly global event gathering stakeholders in liver diseases for 5 days of the best science exchange, knowledge transfer, education, public health and patient support. London’s position as an international hub is an important factor in attracting a large audience of experts in the field.”
