A MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIRS

 

FNM2020 will be the first meeting of the Federation of Neurogastroenterology & Motility to be held in the Southern Hemisphere. The meeting offers an exceptional chance to present latest research in neurogastroenterology and facilitate discussion and interaction with active researchers and clinical colleagues from Europe, Asia, Australasia and the America’s.

The meeting will be held in The City of Adelaide, located in the State of South Australia. The meeting venue will be held in the new Adelaide Convention Centre, which is situated in the centre of the city next to the River Torrens. Adelaide is home to one of the largest health and medical research precincts in the Southern Hemisphere, with the new South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Adelaide is famous for its outstanding wine, food and arts culture. The City of Adelaide is located about 15 kilometres from the pristine beaches of popular summer tourist destinations, such as Glenelg. FNM2020 will be held at the end of summer, providing the ideal climate to enjoy the meeting and the attractions that Adelaide has to offer.

On behalf of the local organizing committee, we look forward to see you in Adelaide for FNM 2020.
