The Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG) is the only research organisation in the Australasian region with a focus on gastro-intestinal cancers.
The AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting is widely known throughout Australasia as the premier meeting in the gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer space. The three day meeting provides gastro-intestinal cancer clinicians, researchers and allied health specialists with the opportunity to present their research and discuss current challenges and innovations, as well as to hear from international and local leaders on the latest in research and treatments. The exchange of knowledge and expertise is strongly encouraged in our friendly and collegiate meeting environment. The meeting also provides an opportunity for involvement of health professionals in the scientific activities of the AGITG.
The program structure consists of three days of dedicated program which include keynote sessions featuring international guest speakers, plenary and symposia sessions, trials presentations, poster session, new concepts symposium and workshops. On Thursday 5th October, the AGITG program will be combined with the Australia and New Zealand Gastric and Oesophageal Surgery Association (ANZGOSA) Annual Meeting.
“I have found that the AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting consistently provides a very informative and engaging forum for clinicians, trainees and researchers with an interest in the management of gastro-intestinal cancers to meet, learn and interact. The meeting offers a wide variety of educational opportunities, including symposia and plenary sessions featuring international speakers and interactive case-based workshops. Researchers are provided with the opportunity to present their research and new clinical trial concepts in the Best of Posters session and New Concepts Symposium. The discussion and feedback that follows is both thought-provoking and educational. The AGITG study sessions keep me updated on the progress of current clinical trials, and provide valuable lessons and insights into important considerations and challenges faced in clinical trial design, recruitment and translational sub-studies. I highly recommend the AGITG meeting to other gastro-intestinal cancer clinicians, researchers and advanced trainees.”

“The diversity of the AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting program is what makes this meeting enjoyable.The educational component of the meeting, led by international and local key opinion leaders, addresses topical issues in the management of GI cancers and is highly informative. The Poster session showcases various aspects of GI research projects in Australasia and is a good opportunity to foster discussions and collaborations”.
