What Do You Think?
DDW is the largest GI convention in the world and now we have a logo to reflect our global reach.
DDW is comprised of four societies:  AASLD, AGA, ASGE, and SSAT.  Each D in the logo represents one of the four societies by their organization's color.

Exhibitor Resource Center
Tip of the Month
Are you spending time with every show visitor? Stop that!  One of the hardest concepts for some exhibitors is to understand is that everyone at the show is not a prospect.  At any show, there are really only three types of prospects for your product or service. Handling each one correctly will save you time and save them time.  Read More
