16th International Gastric Cancer Congress (IGCC)

May (7) 8 – 9 – 10, 2025
Maritim Hotel, Amsterdam


We feel privileged to have the opportunity to organize the 16th International Gastric Cancer Congress in Amsterdam.

The International Gastric Cancer Congress, which is held every 2 years, has always been a place where all experts on Gastric Cancer come together to share and discuss the latest insights of diagnosis and treatment of this often deadly disease.

Fortunately, new developments occur rapidly in all involved disciplines. New Gastroenterology techniques lead to earlier detection and better endoscopic treatment. New Radiology features lead to better staging, whereas new Surgical techniques, like sentinel node, laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures, lead to less invasive operations and quicker recovery. New Pathology techniques lead to a better definition of each tumor and give rise to targeted and other systemic therapies. Furthermore, radiation therapies improve and are applied pre- and post-operatively and for palliative settings.

Due to the international character of the congress, different views and experiences can be shared and can easily lead to worldwide collaborations and fellowships.

The organization of the International Gastric Cancer Congress will provide an interesting program that addresses the topics mentioned above in the atmosphere of a brand new congress venue in the dazzling city of Amsterdam.

We welcome you all to join us and fight Gastric Cancer together.

Henk Hartgrink
Congress President
