Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee of the 13th Asia-Pacific Primary Liver Cancer Expert Meeting (APPLE 2023), we cordially invite you to the annual conference, which will be held on July 6–8, 2023, at the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas in Seoul, Korea.

We are excited to announce that the venue for the APPLE Meeting will return to Korea in 2023, after the 9th APPLE Meeting which was held in Seoul in 2018. Following the great success of the previous APPLE meetings hosted by various countries, it is our hope that the forthcoming meeting will also serve as an important platform for sharing valuable research results for the treatment of liver cancer.

Although we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 situation, it is currently improving, and various social distancing and travel restrictions have been lifted. We believe that we will finally be able to meet again, face to face, at the next meeting. In this regard, We would like to express my deep gratitude and respect to all of our members who have endured these difficult times and continued with patient care and research nevertheless.

Under the theme of “Novel Insights into the Evolution of Liver Cancer Management,” APPLE 2023 will focus on fostering and promoting intellectual collaboration and exchange between physicians, scientists, and industry leaders that will lead to common discussions pertaining to the latest advanced innovations in Liver Cancer Treatment.

We will provide all the participants with an excellent opportunity to engage in a dialogue with distinguished scholars and experts as well as industry leaders so they can play a crucial role in developing solutions to the most pressing issues in Liver Cancer, generating another consensus on various perspectives of its treatment that will build a brighter today and tomorrow in our profession.

Thank you, and we look forward to meeting with you all in Seoul!

Yours sincerely,
