International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association
The IHPBA hosts its international meeting, the "World Congress" every second year. The location rotates around our three geographic regions, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe-Middle East-Africa in a six year cycle. The last World Congress took place in São Paulo in 2016 and was attended by over 2,300 participants.
National chapters who are considering bidding to host a future World Congress should contact the Management Company for details of the bid guidelines.
In the intervening years the three regional associations hold their own meetings.
IHPBA also encourages consensus meetings hosted by the regional associations and meetings of our national chapters as well as other related meetings within the HPB specialty.
