ABOUT THE AHPBA
The Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary
Association (AHPBA) will host the 2017
Annual Meeting at the Loews Miami
Beach, Florida March 29 – April 2, 2017.
The Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary
Association, an incorporated, nonprofit
organization, was created with a vision
of devoting itself to relieving the human
suffering caused by HPB disorders
throughout the world, by improving
education, training, innovation, research
and patient care.
Join more than 700 specialists from over
40 countries in an interchange of clinical
and scientific knowledge. Attendees will
include clinicians, surgeons, hepatologists,
gastroenterologists and scientists all in the
hepatic, pancreatic and biliary disciplines.
As an event sponsor or exhibitor, you will
have direct access to the decision makers
in this very specialized field. Access
includes:
• Breaks and meal functions in the
Exhibit Hall to drive more
traffic and help you build strong connections with attendees.
• Program listings, web site links and opportunities for printed and
electronic sponsorships.
BENEFITS OF
EXHIBITING/SPONSORING
The AHPBA Annual Meeting attracts more
than 700 medical professionals from all
over the world. As a sponsor or exhibitor
you will be networking with the experts in
HPB surgery and meeting the top decision
makers in the field.
The AHPBA serves as the American
Chapter of the International HepatoPancreato-Biliary Association (IHPBA).
The AHPBA has grown from a handful of
surgeons interested in HPB surgery to a
membership of over 1,200 strong.
Through annual meetings, educational
sessions and courses, the AHPBA
increases awareness of what is happening
in our field of surgery. Patient care
changes every day, and the AHPBA helps
surgeons keep up with these fast paced
changes.
Extensive face-to-face time with attendees
is built into the program. Meal functions
and networking events in the exhibit hall
draw influencers and keep them here. Networking receptions and group activities
provide time for concentrated relationship
building. In addition, you will have the
opportunity to hear from leaders in the
industry and learn about current challenges
and the most innovative technologies in
the field.
• Networking opportunities during sessions, receptions and activities.
AHPBA attendees include
professionals with a wide
variety of experiences:
• Unprecedented access to the most cutting edge developments and
challenges in the HPB field.
Our sponsors and exhibitors provide
an invaluable foundation to our meeting
and we hope to include you in this event.

OVERALL EDUCATIONAL
OBJECTIVES
The AHPBA Annual Meeting has been
structured around various tracks,
representing the liver, pancreas, biliary
system and transplant. At the conclusion
of the Annual Meeting of the AHPBA, the
Association expects its attendees
to have gained knowledge and skills that
will lead to changes or enhancements
in their own practices and improve
physician training. The AHPBA expects
that the Scientific Program’s educational
interventions will result in measurable
improvements in patient care.
The specific focus of the meeting will
be on Research, Education, and
Mentorship in HPB Surgery.
Following the meeting attendees should
have a better understanding of:
• The role for new technologies in liver
replacement therapy for patients with
liver failure
• The role of advanced imaging,
molecular testing, and new therapies
for complex HPB problems
• The design and implementation
of clinical trials in HPB surgery
• The state of the art care for pancreas
cancer, including the role of
chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
• The role of technology and research to
optimize the safety, quality, and
outcomes in HPB Surgery
• The next frontier in application
and techniques of liver and pancreas
transplantation

INVITATION TO EXHIBIT
Over the past several years, the AHPBA has offered a pre-meeting course
on HPB Ultrasound and Advanced Technology. This course has grown
continuously in its success, and this past year we were not only able to sell
out the course, but also had a waiting list of over 30 additional registrants.
Support for the Ultrasound Course will be limited to key providers and
opportunities for this high level sponsorship are exceptional.
Pre-Congress Symposium
The Pre-Congress Symposium, previously named the Postgraduate Course,
is one of the meeting highlights each year, and is a full day course coordinated
by the president-elect with key faculty in the HPB field. Previous topics
include Cases, Complications & Controversies, as well as Controversies in
HPB and Transplant Surgery. This year’s Pre-Congress Symposium will be
another exceptional educational offering, all in debate-style format, and will
focus on Controversies and Conundrums in HPB Surgery.
Video & Poster Sessions
In addition to the scientific sessions, state of the art lectures and educational
symposia, the AHPBA Annual Meeting offers a number of opportunities to
sponsor focused video sessions, a video lounge in the exhibit hall and themed
poster sessions. Any of these offer a unique opportunity for sponsorship,
specific to your company’s key target audience and product.

South America. Each fellowship is $5,000 and is used to offset
the costs of travel and accommodation for the Traveling Fellow.

The AHPBA Distinguished Service Award is the pre-eminent
award of the AHPBA. The award was established to recognize
highly distinguished physicians who have provided leadership and
made significant contributions in the field of hepato-pancreatobiliary surgery.

goal of these fellowships is to assist trainees and members from
