King's Live 2020
10 - 14 November 2020
It gives us great pleasure to announce the initial details of King's Live 2020.
This year King’s Live is bringing you the same great programme, educational content and chance to interact with some of the leading experts in the field of endoscopy in a virtual environment.
The lecture day ‘Lower GI endoscopy at a glance: diagnosis, treatment and future advances’ is an excellent programme showcasing the basics and technological advancements in lower GI.
The Masterclass will show case a wide spectrum of techniques from live streamed surgery with an expert discussion panel and the opportunity to pose your questions to them.
Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to postpone the King’s Live 2020 hands on courses due to the current uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and future lockdown restrictions. We are currently looking to reschedule in January when we hope the restrictions have been lifted and will share details with you as soon as they are confirmed. The hands-on Masterclasses, give you a chance to get hands on training with some of the best surgeons in the UK. Details will be shared as soon as possible on the new dates.

Alongside the live programme we are pleased to this year announce the launch of the King’s Live Community. Whilst not all elements of this year’s programme will occur face-to-face, we’ve taken this opportunity to expand our virtual presence through the creation of an online platform dedicated solely to knowledge-sharing, educational development and general networking.
With the platform now officially live, this will give you the chance to follow and contribute to exclusive content, as well as grow your professional network by connecting with industry experts and fellow endoscopy professionals, in turn creating a valuable, tailored experience of King’s Live 2020. With 2020 proving to be a year of adaptation, we’re keen for you to join us in being amongst the first to establish a digital legacy, and so invite you to Join the Discussion, Engage with the Virtual Event, and Continue the Conversation in 2021 onwards.
The Community is entirely free to sign up to, too – so be sure to share it with your colleagues and wider network!
To access the community, please click here. Once you’re in, why not get the ball rolling by adding a profile picture, and introducing yourself on our welcome post with who you are, where you work, where you’re based & your area of expertise? The community is very much all about the people at the heart of the profession, so we’d be delighted for you to join us. We look forward to connecting with you there!
