As practitioners we are driven to seek out the most appropriate medical and technological solutions available in order to provide our patients with the best long-term treatment possible. The ITI supports this process through its educational offerings, of which the ITI World Symposium is its flagship event. In 2017, the theme of the ITI World Symposium is “Key factors for long-term success” and is directly linked to the importance the ITI places in evidence-based information for application in daily clinical practice.

For well over 35 years, the ITI has focused on supporting and promoting evidence-based science and has built up a deservedly strong reputation for rigorous examination of new methods and technologies. The ITI World Symposium serves as a regular meeting point for all those who are eager to hear about and experience these latest findings within the field presented by an international faculty of top speakers. The last ITI World Symposium in Geneva drew more than 4,200 participants from 80 countries.

By holding its World Symposium in Basel, the ITI has turned a full circle and gone back to its roots. The organization was founded in nearby Waldenburg and held its very first World Symposia in Basel in 1988 and 1992. Basel itself is very welcoming with a charming old town and the river Rhine that weaves its way through the city and into neighboring Germany. The meeting will be held at Messe Basel, with its newly refurbished and extended infrastructure and facilities, thus ensuring a great event for participants.

We look forward to seeing you.
