Dear Colleagues,

The Mumbai branch of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (MBIAP) is pleased to host PEDICON 2019 – The 56th Annual Conference of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics at MMRDA Exhibition Grounds from the 6th-10th February 2019. The city of Mumbai, synonymous with industry, innovation, grit and glamour has served as the official secretariat of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics since inception. After hosting successful PEDICONs in 2003 and 2007, we are gearing up to host yet another memorable PEDICON in 2019.

MMRDA Exhibition Grounds is the most sought-after venue in the city. Located at the heart of the new business hub, Bandra Kurla Complex, it is easily accessible from various parts of the city. Rooms across various hotel categories have been blocked at competitive rates for the convenience of participating delegates. The event arena itself is spread over 6 lakh square feet. The entire arena is covered, sound insulated and air conditioned with well-appointed zones and ample parking facilities.

The event is expected to surpass all earlier PEDICONs in terms of registration, scientific content and industry participation. Our early-bird campaign has attracted over 4,000 registrations and we expect to register 10,000 delegates by the end of this year. Our theme for 2019 is ‘Illness to Wellness’ and with this in mind, we have programmed the scientific sessions of the conference. We start PEDICON 2019 on the 6th of February, 2019 with 25 focused pre-conference workshops at various institutes across Mumbai. 7th of February, 2019 will be dedicated to CME and the conference will be on 8th, 9th and 10th February, 2019. Over the four days, we have 600 faculty members presenting simultaneously across 8 scientific halls. Great care has been taken to design the program in a way that interests everyone from a post-graduate student to the seasoned consultant. Interaction and discussion has been given greater priority over didactic lectures. We also expect to have over 1500 academic submissions for free papers and e-posters.

Apart from the rich scientific program, we plan to introduce a novel concept ‘PEDIFEST’ that is designed to provide value engagement for the accompanying delegates through the day. In addition to this we will be hosting two star-studded banquets on the 8th and 9th of February, 2019. All conference details are available on the official website www.pedicon2019.in and the conference mobile application is available on the Android and Apple app stores.

With great programming, a world-class venue, delicious meals and enthralling entertainment, we are confident that PEDICON 2019 will be an avenue for you to learn, share, network and get inspired. We whole-heartedly welcome you to join us for PEDICON 2019 in ‘आमची मुंबई’ ‘… (Amchi Mumbai)
