The AGITG ASM 2022 was a unique opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues across the APAC. Due to Covid-19 pandemic this was the first face-to-face conference for me in the last three years. Presenting a poster and receiving a feedback from the experts in the field of GI oncology is extremely helpful for the future career development. I especially enjoyed sessions about New Concepts and Breakout Sessions on mCRC. It was great to listen/see presentations by prominent scientists like Chris Karapetis and to get familiar with current major hurdles in GI oncology. Finally, the Gala Dinner was brilliantly organised and the food was awesome. Thank you AGITG for the great conference and I am looking forward to the next ASM in New Zealand.
