Welcome to the 20thInternational Conference on Behçet’s Disease

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to join us in Marrakech for the 20th International Conference on Behçet’s Disease. It is the first time for Morocco to host the International Conference on Behçet’s Disease organized under the auspices of the International Society for Behçet’s Disease and Moroccan Society of Internal Medicine. We are honoured and proud to welcome you to our beautiful and vibrating Marrakech. Known as Morocco’s southern pearl, Marrakech maintains its position as a hotspot for international tourists. Marrakech stands out for its “community” and “creativity” and has a ranking in the top-10 of most exciting city of the world. Most importantly, its welcoming and hospitable culture and people make every visitor feel at home.

Congress Center (Savoy Hotel) is at 15 minutes from the center city of Marrakech, from the railway station and from the international airport.

As the main event in the world of Behçet’s disease, the conference provides high quality contributions on a wide range of topics including basic immunology, genetics and clinical innovations. The Conference Steering Committee has planned to provide an excellent scientific programme covering all topics of Behçet’s Disease aiming at bridging new development in basic and clinical science. There will be the “Meet the Expert” breakfast sessions, which will give the opportunity to young doctors to share experiences with the experts.

There will also be a one-day meeting for patients and families, which has been prepared together with the patients’ associations.

You are cordially invited to the Welcome Cocktail on Wednesday 18th September and to the Social Dinner on Friday 20th September (on registration only).
