It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join the BSG for our Annual Meeting, BSG LIVE at the ICC, Birmingham on the 20th – 23rd of June 2022.

Prof Adrian Stanley, BSG Senior Secretary

After over two years without a face-to-face meeting, we are excited to be able to bring the gastroenterology and hepatology community to Birmingham for an in-person event so that together, we can look forward to the future of our speciality. The aims of this meeting are:

  • To educate our members on state-of-the-art investigation and management, as well as new developments in all fields of gastroenterology and hepatologyv
  • To provide high quality CPD for our members
  • To allow researchers in all gastroenterology related fields to present, share, and discuss their findings
  • To encourage and enable collaborative working and research in all fields of gastroenterology and hepatology

We are bringing back popular features such as the Monday Masterclass, Endoscopy Village, and Meet the Experts sessions. A number of exciting new initiatives such as a Wellbeing zone and a dedicated space for Digital Health and Innovation will also be launched. In addition to our Plenary and section-based sessions covering the breadth of our speciality, we will also run several major new symposia including Sustainability in Gastroenterology, Mentoring, and “How to avoid Burnout”.

Our abstracts submission portal is now open and I encourage everyone to consider submitting their work to this event. Presenting an abstract at our annual meeting is an exciting opportunity to showcase your scientific achievements, research and audits to a large and knowledgeable audience.  Submit your abstract by 15th February for your chance to get onto the national stage and have your research published in our highly respected journal, Gut. There are also a number of abstract awards and bursaries available.

After two years like no other, we are delighted to welcome you to BSG LIVE this year and hope you will join us as we come together to make this the very best BSG Meeting yet.
