DEADLINE EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 30, 2019

2023 Congress of the Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Association

Letter of Intent Submission Information

For our 2023 Congress we will be accepting bids from North America.

WHY NORTH AMERICA?

Our council seeks to achieve geographically balanced exposure at our Congresses. Our last Congress was located in Europe and the next will be held in Oceania. Therefore, we would like to bring the 2023 Congress back to North America.

If there are no suitable candidates from North America, then we will consider opening up the Congress bids to other regions.
