The BSGE ASM 2017 will take place in Kingston upon Hull.
Kevin Phillips announced the meeting at the recent ASM in Cornwall. Kevin was BSGE president from 2012 to 2014 and is now one of four trust medical directors at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. He enthused about the vibrant Yorkshire city, which is to be the UK’s City of Culture in 2017.
The very first full meeting of the new BSGE was held in Hull, hometown of the first president Alan Gordon, in September 1990. Back in 1990, Jacques Donnez from Brussels was the keynote speaker. The meeting took the form of a two-day presentation of scientific papers with a dinner in the hotel on the first evening. The meeting was very successful with about 50 participants, many of whom have since become leaders in the field. More than a quarter of a century later, next year’s meeting will hopefully be just as innovative and influential.
Hull was recently named by the Rough Guides as one of the top ten places in the world to visit, alongside Amsterdam, Nashville and Mexico City.
“Brimming with new hotels and restaurants, and even more of that distinctive home-grown creativity the city has always had. There are atmospheric old-timey pubs, eight excellent museums and a picturesque Old Town with cobbled streets.”
With excellent transport links, great meeting locations and a packed programme of lectures, debates, education, research and the odd chance to socialise too, Hull 2017 is not to be missed.
So, make a note in your diary; BSGE ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING 2017, HULL from the 17th to 19th May, 2017 and watch this space for further information.
