Dear colleagues,

After the fulminant re-launch of our on-site event during the 25th Anniversary Congress with again more than 2,000 participants on site in Düsseldorf, it is now our great pleasure to cordially invite you to the 26th edition of our International Endoscopy Symposium!

The congress can take place on site like before the pandemic. It offers all opportunities for personal meetings with colleagues, business partners and friends from all over the world. In recent years, we have further developed the digital infrastructure of our congress with the introduction of our interactive new web platform and the new congress app, which enables exclusive later on-demand access and active participation in discussions and TED questions for registered participants. Furthermore, the platforms offer the possibilities of direct interaction with speakers and other participants, the exchange of information on new developments and technologies, and participation in virtual satellite symposia.

The symposium will be complemented by a certified hands-on training course. This includes basic techniques as well as training on advanced endoscopic therapies. Due to the overwhelming demand at last year’s congress, we will offer additional seats this year – however, based on experience, we recommend early registration!

As with our previous symposia, renowned experts from different parts of the world will be on site in Düsseldorf, allowing us to learn from each other on an international level. Participants can ex- pect a varied program with live demonstrations from the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Düsseldorf, mini and satellite symposia, a satellite symposium for nurses, state-of-the-art lectures, and snack with the experts, using the latest AV technology to provide an ideal professional environment for learning and sharing knowledge and experience at the Maritim Hotel Düsseldorf Airport City.
It is designed to encourage your active participation and stimulate discussions. The high number of participants and the very positive survey results of our previous symposia prove the success of our concept.

The faculty, the congress organization, LUX AV and our team are looking forward to welcoming you personally on site again and wish you an interesting and enjoyable stay in Düsseldorf!

Torsten Beyna and Horst Neuhaus
