This is a great opportunity for BOMSS to make an impression on the world stage of bariatrics. We are a Society that promotes high quality in bariatric surgery thanks to the work on constitutional issues, practice standards and data collection by our past and current president.


The venue – the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre in the heart of London and in the shadow of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey – will certainly prove a big draw.
