What is Winners Meeting?
The winners project was initially founded by Prof. Arnaud Wattiez. It was established in conjunction with his clinical fellows with the concept of creating a platform where high quality endoscopic training and education could be freely accessible to all, on both a national and international scale.
The Winners project has continued to push boundaries and exists in many different forms notably winners day, winners corner, winners bingo and the winners meeting.The Winners Project has been well aware of the growing need and demand for a recognized, structured educational program incorporating both theoretical and practical skill sets.
The annual winners meeting developed as a natural progression in a bid to create a unique meeting far removed from the classic congress models. The concept was to bring together young people with a common interest in minimal access surgery where ideas could be exchanged and experiences shared whilst at the same time establishing strong foundations for the next generation of endoscopists.
