As today is the last day of ICS 2019 in Gothenburg, on behalf of the ICS Board, I would like to thank Ian Milsom, Adrian Wagg and Kari Bo and the whole local organising committee for inviting us to Gothenburg. We have enjoyed an excellent scientific programme and a most hospitable city. We are proud to have hosted in excess of 1,900 delegates from over 70 countries.
We have experienced some fantastic state of the art sessions including Risk Prognostication in Prolapse and Incontinence Following Childbirth and The Urinary Microbiome. The round tables and workshops were full. Delegates also enjoyed busy product theatres within the exhibition area. We also hope that you enjoyed the social events, with special Swedish elements, which the local committee worked really hard to make a success. We must of course also mention Ralph Peeker, our local Urologist who rocked the annual dinner last night.
I would like to express our sincere gratitude to those of you who took the time to submit an abstract or workshop application. Without our scientific programme, workshop presenters and chairs there would be no meeting. We hope that you felt the meeting was beneficial and that you will consider submitting again in the future.
The Board are keen to receive your feedback on the meeting, and this can be provided in the evaluation survey here. You will also receive your certificate of attendance at the end of the evaluation.

Next year's meeting will take place on 26-29th August 2020 in Las Vegas, USA. This is the 50th ICS Annual Meeting, a very special occasion which is further enhanced by the ICS hosting the 7th International Consultation on Incontinence (ICI).
We truly hope you will attend what promises to be a most unique Annual Scientific Meeting.
