It is with great pleasure to invite you for the 13th Congress of the European – African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association in Amsterdam in 2019. The meeting will be held right in the city centre of Amsterdam in the Netherlands from Sunday June 2nd till Wednesday June 5th 2019.
The Netherlands is known for its evidence based research and high-quality, practice-changing nationwide randomized controlled trials in HPB surgery over the last decades. Besides this high quality research Amsterdam is known for its free way of thinking and open minded way of living. This combination gives all possibilities for an exciting E-AHPBA meeting in summer 2019 and an excellent opportunity for active interaction between HPB specialists and leading industrial partners on cutting edge technology and other innovative treatments.
The congress venue is the Beurs van Berlage which was built as stock exchange at the end of the 19th century and hosted the marriage of the king and queen of the Netherlands. It is located in the heart of Amsterdam city centre and therefore has a great accessibility via Schiphol airport and Amsterdam central train station from all major cities in Europe.
We will provide a scientific programme containing state-of-the art lectures and symposia organized by the E-AHPBA programme committee.
Looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam.
Prof. Olivier Busch, congress chairman
Prof. Marc Besselink, treasurer
