It is our pleasure and honour to invite you all to the 20th B.E.S.T. Congress. The venue will be the brand new BMCC Congress hall ( in medieval Bruges, Belgium. 

The B.E.S.T. (Bariatric Endoscopic Surgical Trends) meeting has become a scientifically highly recognized congress in the field of bariatric and metabolic surgery. The quality of the faculty with some of the most renowned bariatric and metabolic surgeons worldwide guarantees the meeting will be highly successful. The main goal of this year's 20th edition will be to discuss: "2013-2023: What are the critical changes in bariatric and metabolic practice?" 

Proudly referring to the past, the meeting will focus on complex and revisional bariatric and metabolic procedures as well as on new developments in our still rapidly evolving field. The congress days will include around 16 deferred live surgical procedures in accordance with the IFSO guidelines, high standard lectures and interactive debates. As for the socio-cultural part, Bruges is the ‘Venice of the North’ and needs no further explanation.
