On behalf of the APPES, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 13th Biennial Scientific Meeting of Asia Pacific Pediatric Endocrine Society 2024 (APPES 2024), in New Delhi in October 2024. The APPES Scientific meeting is happening in India for the first time.
After virtual meetings of APPES in 2021 and a Hybrid meeting in 2022, we plan to meet face-to-face for this meeting. We promise to make this meeting a memorable one by offering a whole platter of academic feast and a heart-warming experience of the cultural heritage of New Delhi.
New Delhi is the capital city of India and the main business and political hub, with a perfect blend of modernity and ancient Indian culture. New Delhi has one of the busiest and most modern international airports and is well connected by many direct International flights to all major cities in the Asia-Pacific region. It is also not far from most of the countries in the Asia-Pacific region. New Delhi enjoys very pleasant weather during the October month.
Delhi is part of the golden triangle of India, “Delhi-Jaipur-Agra”, and India’s most prominent tourist attraction. The Taj-Mahal, winner of the “New 7 Wonders of the World”, is just 230 kms (3-4 hour’s drive) from Delhi, and is a major tourist attraction, visited by approximately 10 million tourists every year. There are plenty of 1-3 days tours to important tourist places available nearby for the accompanying family members, etc. There are several historical places and monuments (Qutub-Minar, Red Fort, Lotus Temple, India Gate, etc.) within the city to tour. Delhi also offers plenty of opportunities for shopping for local handicrafts.
