Post-ENETS Newsletter: Highlights of the 16th Annual ENETS Conference 2019
This year’s annual conference attracted 1,537 participants from 60 countries from as far afield as Columbia, New Zealand, South Africa and Hong Kong! Moreover, this year our Postgraduate Course attracted a record number of participants – with more than 830 visitors, we had to increase the room size to accommodate everyone.
In this first post-ENETS newsletter, we would like to focus on some of the conference highlights. More coverage of the conference will follow in the next few weeks, so please stay tuned.
ENETS and its scientific organising committee would like to express gratitude and thanks to all the participants who took part in this year’s conference. We would also like to sincerely thank our Scientific Faculty for 2019 for their important contribution. And last, but not least: ENETS is indebted to our many generous sponsors – without their help, the 16th Annual ENETS Conference would not have been possible.
To date we have received very positive and constructive feedback on this year’s conference.

This year, the international faculty organised a well-received scientific programme, which included interactive workshops, live MDT and a nurse symposium. The participants this year were presented with many opportunities to interact with the speakers and take part in poster walks, which focussed on both basic and clinical science.
