The largest medical exhibition and
conference to be hosted by the
UK comes to the capital this month.
Taking place at Excel London, Gastro
2009 will cover all aspects
of gastroenterology, and for the first time will bring together
the associations: The
United European Gastroenterology Federation, the World Gastroenterology
Organisation, the World Organisation of Digestive Endoscopy and the British
Society of Gastroenterology.
Managing director of Excel London,
David Pegler, says the
city has much to attract events of this type and scale. “We sell London, not Excel. The city has
unrivalled social experience, is seen as a centre of learning in the medical world, is
affordable and easy to get to.”
The event, which takes place 21-25
November, includes a 28,000 square metre exhibition and will attract 15,000 delegates over five
days. It is expected to
bring £30m to the capital.
