DDW TV Returns to Digestive Disease Week® 2017

  

Jan. 9, 2017 — Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) is pleased to announce that DDW TV will be returning once again at DDW 2017 in Chicago, IL. DDW TV brings a different element to the conference using video and is a great platform to learn about best practices in gastroenterology, hepatology, GI endoscopy, gastrointestinal surgery and related fields.

Partnering again with international film and broadcasting company WebsEdge, DDW TV will produce a new episode each day of the conference featuring:

  • Conference News: On site, DDW TV will film expert interviews, capture session highlights, and hear delegates’ insights and reactions from around the meeting.
  • In-Depth Reports: Five-minute documentary style films from universities, institutions and organizations looking to highlight programs, case studies and ongoing initiatives that are making a difference.

At the conference, DDW TV will be playing on screens around the venue, in selected delegate hotels on dedicated TV channels, and on the DDW Blog and other social media channels. 

In the lead up to the 2017 conference, WebsEdge will be reaching out to organizations to discuss the opportunity to produce a film about their work, to be included in the DDW TV 2017 program. DDW TV 2017 has a limited number of In-Depth Report spots available for organizations. If you are interested in learning more about being part of the 2017 program, please contact Sally Nelson at sally@websedge.com.
