Foreword



Dear Friends and Colleagues,

for the 7th we are again committed to bring in Milano the latest developments of Endoscopy and Gastroenterology.

As per our tradition we have gathered a stellar International Faculty with scientists coming from all over the world to renovate the link of our meeting with passion, innovation and attention to patient care. Our International Faculty will demonstrate and illustrate with live-cases and lectures what is more advanced, cutting-edge and innovative in both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, in few words the Next Generation of Endoscopy.

For the first time in Europe several new devices and technologies will be introduced to us with plenty of details on indications and future applications.

To keep going with an innovative and always transforming model of education this year we are going to be connected with 3 among the best, most technologically equipped and largest volume Endoscopy Division worldwide. We will have the chance to get inside their rooms, see how they practice and discover the endoscopy beyond our own boundaries.

Altogether with the Co-directors, the Endoscopy Staff and the entire Hospital Organization we want to offer a very warm welcome to our city, our meeting and our philosophy of patient care.
