Our aim is to keep the professional yet intimate and personal feel of the conference, but to alleviate overcrowding and accommodate for growth. This move to Orlando will allow for that." - Dr. Stephen B. Hanauer, conference co-chair
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and Imedex are pleased to announce that the 2014 “can’t miss” event for healthcare professionals and researchers who study and manage patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) will be moving to its new location, Orlando, FL.
Though the conference has been held in Hollywood, FL for many years, its ever-expanding audience has necessitated a move. “We’ve simply outgrown our existing space and want to ensure the experience and quality of the event remains intact,” said conference co-chair Dr. Stephen B. Hanauer. “Our aim is to keep the professional yet intimate and personal feel of the conference, but to alleviate overcrowding and accommodate for growth. This move to Orlando will allow for that, and bring greater opportunities to expand the content and offerings.”
The conference will again be held over three days, and offer a two-track format designed for clinicians, researchers, allied health professionals, nurses, and pediatric gastroenterologists. Expanded Meet-the-Experts sessions, increased symposia, larger presentation rooms, and networking event space will all benefit from the relocation.
Co-chaired by Richard P. MacDermott, MD, MACG, FACP, AGAF and Stephen B. Hanauer, MD, FACG, AGAF, the conference will take place on December 4-6, 2014 at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, FL. More information will be available in early 2014 at http://www.advancesinibd.com.
