  • PROGRAMME BOOK

ESGO is very much aware of the amount of waste that is generated during a congress, in particular when it comes to printed documents. In order to support a more environmentally friendly congress, ESGO is proposing to drastically cut its print volume by offering electronic alternatives to the final programme.
The ESGO 2019 Final Programme will be available for download to your computer, smartphone or tablet before the start of the Congress.
During the registration procedure you will still be offered the option to request a printed copy of the Final Programme Book at a fee.
Help us reduce paper wastage!
