2021 GI Symposium

NCSCG 2021 GI Symposium web banner regis

Dear Colleague,

The Northern California Society of Clinical Gastroenterology (NCSCG) Board and Meeting Planning Committee are pleased to announce that this year’s hybrid meeting will be held live, in-person as a two-day event at the Intercontinental The Clement Monterey, CA and will also be offered as an interactive virtual platform that is accessible via the conference website and a mobile app on June 26-27, 2021. As Monterey county moved into the less restrictive orange tier on April 7th, and as we look ahead to the likely ‘reopening’ of California businesses on June 15th, we are able to safely move ahead with a live, in-person symposium. 

The symposium will provide a unique opportunity to receive a comprehensive update on gastrointestinal diseases from nationally renowned faculty. You will also have ample opportunity to interact with your colleagues, our expert faculty members, and industry representatives, as well as time to partake in the many attractions and recreational activities that Monterey has to offer.

We have reserved a block of rooms for NCSCG members at InterContinental the Clement Monterey, the location of the 2021 GI symposium.  As the worlds of continuing medical education and Northern California tourism cautiously return to pre-pandemic form, we have reached an agreement with the InterContinental to ensure that rooms are not left empty on June 25-27.  Our block of rooms will be reserved exclusively for NCSCG symposium attendees until Thursday, June 3rd.  After this date the hotel will begin opening the rooms up to the general public, and anticipates being able to easily fill them all by the end of the month.  As a result, we hope you will look at your calendars as soon as possible and make your reservations in the next few weeks.


We hope you are as excited as we are for in-person learning and networking, and to enjoy the beautiful surrounding Monterey and Monterey Bay.  For those who cannot attend in person or who prefer to attend virtually, our entire conference will be viewable online just as it was last fall, including live webcasts, real-time question and answer and interactions with exhibitors through our conference app.  Attendees can register for a virtual experience at the same website as those attending in-person
