25 -28 August 2023 Hong Kong

It gives me great pleasure and honour to welcome you all to the 18th Congress of Asian Society of Transplantation, which we believe will be the first face-to-face regional transplant meeting after the COVID pandemic.

We have brought together renowned experts in the region in our Scientific Committee, with the aim to develop a broad program, covering from cutting edge science to ethical issues in transplant. As the biannual transplant congress of Asian Society of Transplantation, issues related to challenges in developing transplant program and promoting organ donation in Asia will also be a highlight of this meeting. Transplant related infection is an important topic and we are delighted to have the co-badge symposium with TTS-TID for the first time in CAST meeting. This congress will offer you an excellent opportunity for networking, reconnecting with old acquaintance and making new friends, after a long period of social distancing and isolation.

Hong Kong is an exciting destination, a perfect meeting place, reflecting the cultural mix of old and new, East and West. We plan to hold the congress at Convention and Exhibition Centre, which is located on the magnificent and renowned Victoria Harbor. There is no attraction in Hong Kong that is more iconic than the skyline of Victoria Harbour! Hong Kong is a vibrant, dynamic city. In a fast-paced city like Hong Kong, there’s always something new happening. There’s never a dull day in Hong Kong!

Together with our entire organizing committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong in 2023!

Dr. Maggie Ma
President, Hong Kong Society of Transplantation
