6th Annual Consensus Conference of the MGB-OAGB International Club

Price: see website

Organisers: MGBOAGB International Club | Official website

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is an honor and pleasure for us to invite you to the 6th Annual Consensus Conference of the MGB-OAGB International Club. Please note that this 2019 event will take place in Cologne, Germany, on Thursday June 20th and Friday June 21st.

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. There are many questions and controversies which we want to discuss together with you during this consensus meeting. For the first time in the history of this conference, we will integrate a live-operation along with the traditional oral and poster presentations, panel discussions and industry exhibits. 

Cologne is Germany´s fourth most populous city, founded by the Romans about 2,100 years ago, later part of the Frankish Empire, until the French occupation 225 years ago under Napoleon. The city extends on both sides of the river Rhine within one of Europe´s major metropolitan areas. You will find a growing and lively city, rich in historical buildings, museums and cultural events (such as the famous carnival), film and media production, trade, beer brewing and education (including two medical schools). 

The venue is only 10 minutes from the Cologne-Bonn International airport and within walking distance to the Rhine,  the famous giant cathedral (highest twin-tower) and the city center.    

We look forward to welcome you to Cologne!

Karl Rheinwalt

(Congress President)
