Annual GEST 2024 Conference

May 16-19, 2024 | New York

Each year, our global network of IR's and IO's meet to advance embolotherapy. It is the place to learn the most innovative techniques and launch the newest products.

"The GEST meeting continues to be a truly unique venue where the latest innovation of our field is presented by global thought leaders. The energy and the excitement of the meeting is palpable and thrilling. I always walk away having learned new information and formed lasting friendships. It's one of my all-time favorite meetings!"

Professor and Chair, Department of Radiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


Highlights from GEST 2023

Dr. Marc Sapoval & Dr. Jafar Golzarian

May 18 – May 21, 2023

More than 800 members of the Interventional Radiology and Interventional Oncology community packed conference rooms at the Sheraton New York Times Square to learn about the latest products, procedures, tools, tips and tricks in this space.

Physicians repeatedly state how this is “THE” conference they come to for learning from their peers, a place where they never fail to pick up ideas and tips that they can weave into their practice immediately.

We are so humbled by the feedback on this meeting and look forward to bringing many more educational opportunities in the upcoming year as we begin our countdown to seeing you all at GEST 2024 in NYC.

GEST 2024 will be held on May 16-19, 2024 in New York.
