Dear Colleagues,

we are honoured to host the 13th International B.E.S.T. Congress, Bariatric Endoscopic Surgical Trends, which will be held in Naples, Italy, on Monday December 5 and Tuesday December 6, 2016.

Each B.E.S.T. Congress is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest research and developments in bariatric and metabolic surgery. This time we will focus on Challenges in Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery. Live surgery mornings will be performed using the  new endoscopic and laparoscopic revisional procedures. In the afternoon round tables, lectures, face to face and question time on the hottest topics will be interactively discussed with the audience.

We have invited a prestigious international and interdisciplinary Faculty to conduct this intensive 2-day Congress.

As Directors of the Congress, we would like to invite all of you to attend and participate actively to this event. It will be a good opportunity to share experiences and make some progress in the management of very complex patients.

The live surgeries will be performed at “Pineta Grande” Hospital and the Congress will be at the Hotel Royal Continental, located on the beautiful Naples’ waterfront, just opposite to Castle dell’Ovo.

Naples’ Tradition, Culture and History will fascinate and enchant you just like all its visitors since the last centuries. Sunny, lively and simply unforgettable. Naples is music, theatres, churches, Vesuvius, coffee, pizza and the sea … all those colours, sounds and aromas will capture your attention, win you over and seduce you.

We look forward to meeting you in Naples to enjoy science and knowledge nicely combined to life pleasures and the traditional Italian hospitality.

See you in Naples!
