What is ObesityWeek?
The American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and The Obesity Society (TOS) joined resources to co-locate our respective annual meetings under one roof. ObesityWeek is the preeminent annual scientific and educational conference covering the full scope of the obesity issue, from cutting edge basic science and clinical research to intervention and public policy discussions that can impact the quality of life for millions who suffer from obesity. Programming will cover the full interdisciplinary spectrum and feature the world’s leading experts in their respective fields.
The ASMBS 2020 Annual Meeting
While we’ve had seven successful years co-hosting ObesityWeek with The Obesity Society (TOS), ASMBS will go back to conducting our own Annual Meeting beginning in 2020. This will enable us to be more responsive to the specific needs of ASMBS members, exhibitors, and corporate partners. We will have greater flexibility in determining the dates and locations of future meetings and create a more intimate environment for idea sharing and networking. Members can look forward to this relaunch of the ASMBS 37th Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in November 2020.
As always, you can expect the highest quality educational experience and new opportunities for networking with colleagues and friends, plus a few surprises that will enhance the overall meeting experience. We are confident this strategic decision will provide greater value and higher relevance to our members. While we will no longer be business partners with TOS on ObesityWeek, we will continue to be strong allies and work closely with them and other groups in advancing the science and treatment of obesity and metabolic disease care for patients everywhere.
The future looks bright for the ASMBS Annual Meeting and for increasing the number of patients who could benefit from this life-saving and transformational surgery.
