It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Newcastle on behalf of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and its IBD Sub-Committee. We have sought to bring together recognised experts in all matters relevant to IBD specialists from across Europe in order to provide all of us with an insightful and innovative day of collaborative learning. We have a diverse group of speakers, with representation from surgery, gastroenterology and radiology, in-keeping with the multidisciplinary nature of the patients with IBD that we have the privilege to treat. Newcastle will no doubt provide us with a fantastic professional and social programme, and we look forward to meeting with you during the meeting.
