Sydney International Endoscopy Symposium 

Through live demonstrations and ‘State of the Art’ lectures, we will take you abreast of all the latest developments in gastrointestinal endoscopy and their implications for future practice. Unsurpassed high definition interactive transmission from the Westmead Endoscopy Unit will take you into the procedure room. The program has been carefully designed and will be relevant and informative to all those involved in Endoscopic practice, be that community based, complex interventional or surgical. 

SIES continues to grow in popularity and attendance, year on year. 2018 saw the event move to the premier meeting venue in Australia, the stylish Sydney International Convention Centre (ICC) in the exciting Darling Harbour precinct. This has proven to be a fabulous success and has taken the meeting to yet another level. 

SIES is conducted over 3 days. Thursday and Friday are the core meeting days, with six 1-2 hour sessions of live endoscopy, interspersed with keynote lectures. The Wednesday morning is dedicated to the Westmead Endoscopy Nurses’ Workshop. The day concludes with the very popular 3-hour satellite symposium for all delegates, "Topical controversies in GI Endoscopy".  The content, delivered by some of the world’s foremost international experts, deconstructs some of the most important advances in the field. 

SIES provides all stakeholders with an opportunity to engage with a wide range of leading clinicians and decision makers in the fields of gastroenterology and endoscopy within Australia and the Asia-Pacific. SIES is now firmly entrenched as the second largest gastroenterology and largest endoscopy meeting in Australia, surpassed only by AGW. 

We accept this educational opportunity with great humility and devote all our energies to ensuring the best possible outcome for all involved, our patients, our delegates and our sponsors. 

On behalf of our Department, Nurses and Doctors alike, I thank you in anticipation of your support and for allocating your valuable time and resources to join us for these three special days. We look forward to meeting again in Sydney in March 2019.
