Dear Friends and Colleagues,

MGB and OAGB have become internationally accepted bariatric and metabolic operations – the fastest growing procedures, now in 3rd place among surgical options against severe obesity and associated diseases.

Please note that this 2020 event will take place in New Delhi, India from Friday 1st to Saturday May 2nd. This would be preceded by a pre conference MGB-OAGB Masterclass on 30th April 2020.

The masterclass will include live surgery transmission and a structured, standardized, protocol based teaching program for bariatric surgeons who wish to start or update themselves. This program will be based on the consensus guidelines of the MGB-OAGB Club.

New Delhi is the capital city of India and has direct flights from all major countries across the globe which will make it easy for you to travel. The venue of the conference is at Taj Vivanta Hotel close to the airport. Taj is a world renowned group of hotels famous for its 5 star hospitality.

A trip to India cannot be completed without a cultural tour. So kindly keep plan your trip to include a trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. For those who are more adventurous, a trip to the world’s highest mountains Himalayas / one of the best beaches in the world at Goa can be arranged.

We look forward to welcoming you to India !
