ISDE World Congress

Join us #ISDE2024

Congress Bid

The ISDE is an international, multispecialty society founded in 1979 for the study of the esophagus in disease and in health. The goal of the congress is to promote the exchange of scientific and medical knowledge among specialists in the field, to maintain interchange with organizations and industries, and to encourage basic and clinical research in fields related to the esophagus. 

In order to promote the professional and educational development of individuals interested in the esophagus, the ISDE sponsors its own journal, international congresses, and other educational programs. The ISDE is managed under the auspices of International Conferences Service, Ltd.

The ISDE accepts applications from destinations and members to host the annual World Congress for Esophageal Diseases. The ISDE Congresses rotate among three global regions: Eastern (Asia/Pacific/Middle East), Europe, and Western (Americas).

An active ISDE member may support the Bid Proposal as a Regional Organization Committee (ROC) Chair, however, this is not a mandatory requirement. ISDE will coordinate introductions with members upon invitation to submit a full bid.

The Request for Proposals for ISDE 2027 Congress will be released in March 2024.

ISDE Members interested in supporting a bid from their city of residence are requested to contact the Congress Manager before contacting their local tourism office.
