ESDE 2017

Dear members of the ESDE,

 It is with great pleasure that we present Utrecht as the venue for the Congress of the European Society for Diseases of the Esophagus on November 8-10, 2017. 

On behalf of the organising committee we welcome you to the city of Utrecht, located in the middle of the Netherlands close to Amsterdam airport. We hope you will experience the Dutch hospitality in the medieval city centre of Utrecht. The venue of the congress, the “Winkel van Sinkel”, has been selected to specifically facilitate exchange of knowledge in esophagology in this environment.

ESDE 2017 has been accredited by the Association of Surgeons of the Netherlands (ASN)! In total 23 credits can be collected: 

Pre-course: 7 credits
Welcome reception: 2 credits

The multidisciplinary congress program has been designed in close collaboration with the Dutch Upper GI Surgery Group, the Dutch Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and the Dutch Upper GI Cancer Group.

 We are very proud to host the ESDE meeting 2017 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
