As you know, FNM2020 – the Federation of Neurogastroenterology and Motility meeting – had to be postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.  We are excited to announce that we will hold the rescheduled meeting in 2021, at the Adelaide Convention Centre  from 14 – 17 April 2021.

Everyone who can travel to Adelaide for the meeting in 2021 will be enthusiastically welcomed. However, we recognise that long-distance air travel may not resume in time and many of our registrants and speakers may not be able to attend in person.

To address this situation, we are presently developing a new, purpose-built virtual conference portal, which will run in parallel with the live, face-to-face conference. 

The virtual conference portal will feature videos of lectures, posters and poster presentations, as well as a range of other interactive features. The portal has been custom designed to meet the needs of our conference community, and we look forward to sharing more information about this with you in the near future.

The two satellite meetings, on the Enteric Nervous System and Visceral Pain will also be included in the website, so that again, anyone who cannot attend in person can still watch all the presentations at their leisure.

The Postgraduate Course will continue to be an interactive panel discussion, which will be both live-streamed and recorded. It too will be accessible through the same website.

All registrants will receive instructions for logging in and accessing the website closer to the meeting.

What this means for speakers and poster presenters
Speakers will be required to submit a recorded video of their presentation. Poster presenters will be required to submit a PDF of their poster, and, optionally, a 3-minute presentation video. We will be providing further information about how to submit presentation files in the coming weeks.

Thank you again for your continued support and we look forward to sharing more details with you soon.

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.

21 CPD points can be claimed for attendance. 

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