India welcomes the 19 th Scientific Congress of Asia Pacific Endodontic Confederation, 2017 to New Delhi.

The APEC Scientific Congress is a bi-annual and much anticipated event on the endodontic conference calendar. The 17 th Scientific Congress of Asia Pacific Endodontic Confederation was held from 22 nd March to 24 th March, 2013 in Seoul, South Korea. The conference entitled "The New Horizon in Endodontics" highlighted the top scientific and translational discoveries in Endodontics in 15 major scientific sessions. This conference was the largest and most diverse to date, with over 800 participants from 19 countries around the world. Conference delegates soaked up the latest opinions, trends and insights from conference presenters, shared experiences with colleagues, made new contacts, strengthened existing relationships, and honed their ideas and the latest knowledge about Endodontics.

Inspite of having one of the biggest pool of students, researchers and practicing endodontists, India has not hosted an international endodontic event for decades. Upon my request to bid for APEC 2017, the Head Office of IES wholeheartedly supported the idea. It was decided to prepare the bid document under the able guidance of Dr. Anil Kohli and I was entrusted with the responsibility of presenting the bid at the APEC General Meeting.

The bid for the 19 th Scientific Congress Asia Pacific Endodontic Confederation, 2017 was held at the 14 th Biennial General Meeting of confederation on 23 rd March, 2013 at Coex Convention Centre, Seoul, Korea. After the bidding process, the house unanimously resolved to have the 19 th Scientific Congress Asia Pacific Endodontic Confederation, 2017 at New Delhi, India.

We look forward for your kind help and support to make this event a mega success and make India proud.
