Information updated June 8, 2020: DDW Virtual™

There’s no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the course of in-person conferences, and we are taking a proactive approach to make sure you get the latest advances in gastroenterology and hepatology for years to come. DDW Administration is already working hard to plan the May 2021 meeting and will keep you updated on this page for any changes in the upcoming months for the introduction of a DDW Virtual™ platform. We remain committed to producing a high-quality event.

We can’t wait to see you again next year at DDW 2021, May 22-25 in Washington, D.C., where we will continue the tradition of bringing the digestive disease community together for four days of the best science, education and networking – whether it be in person or a new virtual setting.
