Digestive health will be in focus next year as Copenhagen is set to host the United European Gastroenterology Week 2023. Held in Copenhagen for the first time in 2005, the congress will take place at Bella Center and is expected to attract 10,000 delegates.

Organised by United European Gastroenterology (UEG), the congress is leading in its field and gathers gastroenterology professionals from across the continent.

“We are very excited that UEG has chosen to return to Copenhagen. We are thoroughly enjoying the close collaboration with the organisation and look much forward to welcoming both UEG and its delegates next year,” says Bettina Reventlow-Mourier, Deputy Convention Director from Wonderful Copenhagen. 

UEG is the leading non-profit organisation for excellence in digestive health in Europe and beyond. It represents over 50,000 professionals from national and specialist societies, individual digestive health experts and related scientists from all fields. It aims to improve the prevention and care of digestive diseases in Europe by providing top-tier education, supporting research and advancing clinical standards. 

“UEG is thrilled to again hold our annual congress for international digestive health professionals in the wonderful city of Copenhagen. We look forward to inviting our #myUEGcommunity to such a welcoming location to ingest the best science and to meet, exchange and evolve," says Helena Cortez-Pinto, UEG President. 

United European Gastroenterology Week 2023 will take place at Bella Center from 14 to 17 October next year.
