When?

The International Liver Congress™ 2019 will take place from 10-14 April 2019. EASL welcomes the interest of the media in matters relating to hepatology and is happy to provide assistance to journalists who wish to attend ILC 2019.

Why attend?

ILC 2019 is the annual EASL meeting and the flagship event in EASL's educational calendar. Every year in April, scientific and medical experts from a broad range of fields including hepatology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, cell biology, transplant surgery, infectious diseases, microbiology and virology, pharmacology, pathology and radiology, and imaging come together from around the world to learn about the latest in liver research. Specialists share recent data, present studies, and findings, and discuss the hottest topics on liver disease. The annual Congress attracts around 10,000 delegates and 250 media representatives from all over the world making this a truly international networking opportunity.

The ILC 2019 press kit will be available in March 2019. Please contact the ILC 2019 press office to be added to the ILC 2019 mailing list, or if you have any questions regarding ILC related media, press registration, and audio or video recordings.

Free registration for press members

Registration fees will be waived for members of the working press who wish to attend to cover the ILC. EASL defines "working press" as reporters, writers, editors, publishers, photographers, videographers, or webmasters who work for or produce publications, news services, broadcast outlets, or news websites that are issued regularly and primarily for the dissemination of news, and who will be attending the event for news reporting purposes. To avoid delays in obtaining credentials on-site, we strongly encourage you to register in advance. Your press badge will be available on-site at the registration desk. EASL reserves the right to deny a press badge to any person at the discretion of EASL staff.
