ISDE World Congress

Join us #ISDE2024

Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues

After two very successful virtual events in 2021 and 2022, we are delighted to now invite you to join us in person for the 19th ISDE World Congress for Esophageal Diseases. The Congress will be taking place in Toronto, Canada on September 8 – 10, 2023 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.

The 2021 and 2022 Congresses saw close to 600 participants and speakers each, representing 55 countries. The program covered a wide range of subjects, including benign as well as malignant diseases, with discussions on epidemiology, fundamental molecular mechanisms, diagnostics and novel therapies, to name just a few. There were special sessions organized by the JES, CSDE and ESDE, the newly formed Young ISDE committee, and the DOTE Festival.

It is the ambition of the ISDE to maintain and even further increase diversity within the Society in the broadest sense of the word. For the upcoming Congress, ISDE aims to attract stakeholders from all disciplines, who can contribute to better understanding, resolving, and sharing of the knowledge of the diseases of the esophagus. It is therefore a great honor to invite gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, biologists, nurses, patient representatives, and industries from different parts of the world to this 19th ISDE World Congress.

We are looking forward to having the Congress in Toronto. This vibrant metropolis, located at the shores of Lake Ontario, has much to offer – from soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower, to the many green spaces, trails, a wide selection of museums, theatres, restaurants, sports facilities, and a state of the art aquarium.

Looking forward to seeing you in Toronto!

Simon Law
ISDE President
