Annual AGA Tech Summit Returns to Boston in 2017

Jan. 4, 2017

Attend the only GI-centric forum dedicated to helping medical innovation evolve in the GI space.

AGA is excited to return to Boston, MA, for its eighth annual Tech Summit on April 12–14, 2017, at the InterContinental hotel. We've assembled prominent individuals in the physician, medtech and regulatory communities to lead attendees through a program that’s both informative and inspirational.

This is an ideal opportunity to explore critical elements impacting how GI technology evolves from concept to reality, including what it takes to obtain adoption, coverage and reimbursement in a continually evolving health-care environment.

  • Get important updates on the digestive health world.
  • Review medtech successes in GI and metabolic diseases from 2016.
  • Explore opportunities and challenges in personalized medicine, improving patient outcomes and more.

We hope to see you this spring in Boston for a truly unique experience. Learn more and register.
