ObesityWeek... known by no other name


During the past several years, a trend has emerged where for-profit companies started reaching into the nonprofit world to host scientific meetings on obesity research and treatment. Some of these meetings are named so similarly that many in the field are confused into attending the wrong meeting. Given the concern, ObesityWeek partners aim to ensure our members, colleagues and other potential attendees recognize ObesityWeek 2016 as the combined annual conference of TOS and ASMBS – rather than by any other name.

Per TOS past president, Patrick O'Neil, PhD, "Misled attendees also pay an opportunity cost, as they likely miss attending the authentic scientific conference they were looking for, which would have probably cost less."

Here are some of the meetings not be confused with ObesityWeek:
  • OMICS 6th World Congress on Obesity, Aug. 8 – 12, Toronto, Canada
  • 7th Obesity & Endocrinology Specialists Annual Meeting, Oct. 10 – 12, Manchester, U.K.
  • 8th Global Obesity Meeting, Nov. 14 – 15, Dubai, UAE
  • MomentEra Global Congress on Obesity, Nov. 21 – 23, Dubai, UAE
  • 9th International Conference on Obesity Medicine, Nov. 28 – 29, Melbourne, Australia
  • 10th International Conference and Exhibition on Obesity & Weight Management, Dec. 8 – 10, Dallas, Texas
ObesityWeek 2016 is the only annual meeting of TOS and ASMBS, Oct. 31 – Nov. 4 in New Orleans, Louisiana. more
