Barcelona, Spain

Join us, and your international colleagues, for this important milestone highlighting more than two decades of groundbreaking research and innovation.

The ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer represents the year’s most important gathering designed to focus on reversing the current global statistics that rank gastrointestinal malignancies as leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide.

As the premier global event in the field, the Congress brings together leading gastroenterology, oncology, pathology, and hepatology experts, clinicians, and surgeons, as well as clinical researchers from across the globe to share pioneering research, approaches, and best practices in treating patients with cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.

The program provides all stakeholders with opportunities to learn, debate, discuss, and network in this very active scientific field where recent progress has led to improvements in patient outcomes.
