“Dear Colleague;

I am delighted to invite you to the 17th Düsseldorf International Endoscopy Symposium. Since our first meeting in 1998 it has been our goal to highlight latest developments in endoscopic imaging and minimally invasive approaches to gastrointestinal and biliopancreatic diseases. With our varied program of lectures, discussions and live video presentations by experts from different schools we believe to have created an ideal professional learning atmosphere. The increasing attendance and very positive results of a detailed evaluation of the previous symposia prove that we were successful in doing so. The faculty, LUX AV, the congress organization, our team and myself are pleased to welcome you. We wish you an interesting and enjoyable stay in Düsseldorf.”
