It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 9th EUGA Annual Meeting in Amsterdam. The EUGA Congress is a flagship conference for Urogyneacologists in Europe and represents one of the largest gatherings of researchers and industry professionals in the field. This year’s conference is no exception and brings together more than 600 delegates from around Europe to discuss the latest advances in this vibrant and constantly evolving field. Latest advances will be discussed and presented through a diverse range of topics from innovative diagnostic and therapeutic options, basis science, as well as physiology of the vagina and pelvic organs are featured in the conference. In addition to the stimulating program of the conference, Amsterdam, with its tourist attractions, the diversity and quality of its cuisine, and world-class facilities, is an unforgettable place to visit. It is my hope, therefore, that you get a chance to explore Amsterdam and its surroundings, and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of our city. It is a great privilege for me as the EUGA 2016 Chair to invite you to attend the Meeting in the hope that you find it stimulating, inspiring and enjoyable. Wishing you a pleasant experience in the EUGA 2016, Amsterdam and I am looking forward to welcoming you.
