ESCP 2020 will take place from 21 Monday to 23 Wednesday September and those interested in attending can register here. For the first time, ESCP 2020 is free to attend, however those who are, or become, members of ESCP will be able to access all of the invaluable conference resources after ESCP2020, so that they can continue to learn from and benefit from them. The three-day, large-scale event will be jam packed full of cutting edge research, the best in training and panel discussions, covering key themes including Gender influences on Colorectal Cancer Treatment, IBD and Meeting the Covid Challenges.

It’s the most anticipated event in the colorectal calendar and an absolute must for those working in, interested in or training in the Coloproctology field. We’ve been working hard to deliver a world-class programme this year and hope that, in its online format, ESCP 2020 will be even more exciting and accessible for surgeons across Europe and beyond,” said ESCP President, Willem Bemelman. “Our profession has been called on this year in a way that we could not have predicted – and now, more than ever, we must communicate with each other, learn from one another and work together to overcome challenges ahead and emerge stronger.  Virtually Vilnius is the setting to discuss the path ahead for our profession and mustn’t be missed.”

Virtually Vilnius is expected to be ESCP’s biggest conference to date as industry bodies from across the world join for this once-in-a-lifetime, reimagined three-day event. The conference and annual meeting was initially planned to take place in Lithuania’s capital city, Vilnius.
