Welcome Letter

Dear colleagues, friends, and partners from countries nearby and from places far away, from smaller practices, bigger hospitals, and across the entire spectrum of our field.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the forthcoming 56th Annual Meeting of ESPGHAN, taking place between 15-18 May 2024 in Milan, Italy.

Milan, the city of arts, history, and sports, will give the perfect background to a stimulating meeting of healthcare professionals, scientists, patients, parents, and industry partners in the fields of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition.

We expect delegates from across the globe, creating a space to foster meaningful interactions and collaborations. All lecturers and chairs will join our global community onsite to ensure the highest quality of presentations and interactions.

The scientific programme will include a wide range of sessions and symposia, clinical tracks, postgraduate courses, and rapid-fire sessions, as well as the popular hands-on learning zones.

Participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and expertise in an international framework, meet colleagues from all over the world, and listen to lectures delivered by prominent leaders in their fields. 

We are truly looking forward to welcoming you to ESPGHAN 2024 in stunning Milan so that together, we can continue advancing our collective pursuit of excellence in Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition!
