As previously announced the Tripartite Colorectal Meeting planned for November 2020 in Auckland has been postponed to 21 - 24 February 2022.
The decision was made following discussion and consultation about the impact of COVID-19 with all the Tripartite Societies and acknowledging the challenges that communities around the globe continue to face.
While our focus is to plan for an in-person meeting in Auckland, New Zealand, we will also offer a virtual option for conference content. We anticipate a hybrid format will allow for continued international participation if travel restrictions are still in place.
If you have submitted an abstract for the Meeting you will receive updates from The Conference Company regarding the further submission processes when confirmed.
We look forward to highlighting a comprehensive programme in 2021.
