Invitation letter:

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the European Society of Paediatric Endoscopic Surgeons (ESPES) we have the honor and great pleasure to invite you to the 8th Annual Congress of our Society that will be held in Brussels, Belgium.

Our Society interests more and more surgeons all over Europe and even elsewhere. This would say that ESPES has proven to have important impact for paediatric endoscopic surgery development. Our annual Congress is the ideal place for exchanging and sharing our experience, listen to expert opinions, participate in round tables and, last but not least, look for new collaborations and friendships.

We will try to make from this 8th Congress an outstanding scientific and social experience. We are very much looking forward to receiving many interesting papers and to establish an exciting program. Several National Endoscopic Societies will join the pre-congress program and this is fantastic news because attendees will participate in colorful topics from over Europe!

And finally there is Brussels: “With a child peeing as a tourist symbol, and famous for its French fries and waffles, it manages to create a nice balance in between the seriousness brought to it by the European institutions and the entertaining aspects it surprises you with daily.
A complete and appropriate conclusion would be: Brussels helps you to open your mind.” We are delighted to have you as hosts in Brussels between 26 and 28 of September 2018.

Ciro Esposito
ESPES President

Henri Steyaert
Congress Chairman

Paul Philippe
