Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG) 25th Annual Scientific Meeting, 2023​

Message from the Convenors

The 25th AGITG ASM will be held in Aotearoa New Zealand for the first time. We are delighted to be welcoming you to Te Pae The Christchurch Convention Centre.

The theme of this year’s meeting is Navigating a Path to Equity in GI Cancer Research, stemming from the pressing need to extend access and increase equity to therapeutic options across regional, rural and remote (RRR) areas, as well as culturally diverse and First Nations population.

Since 1991, the AGITG has been the only research organisation in the Australasian region with a focus on all gastro-intestinal cancers. The ASM is a major highlight of the year, providing an opportunity for increased involvement in the scientific activities of the AGITG and encouraging subsequent ongoing participation in the group’s research. This year’s ASM will be no different and will encourage collaboration between members across Australia and New Zealand.

The four day meeting will provide extensive engagement opportunities for members and sponsors. Day one offers several dedicated workshops, followed by an insightful and collaborative three day program featuring international and local invited faculty, symposia and trial presentations.

We look forward to you joining us in Christchurch at our 25th ASM!
