Thank you!
The Cape Town Convention Bureau will fund a delegate from Africa once there are 1,600 registered delegates and again when we hit 1,700, so complete your registration now!

With this and other donations from all those that contributed to the Bursary programme, 19 delegates will be supported to attend the congress. This is a wonderful demonstration of what it means to be connected as a global profession and an investment in the future, ensuring the benefits of the congress reach far and wide.

Thank you to all who donated.

We look forward to profiling the recipients and their congress experiences.

Networking in your field of interest
Over half of all WCPT congress delegates cite networking as one of the main benefits of attending. If you are presenting in a specific field, remember to look out for the relevant networking sessions as a way to connect with others who share a common interest and to connect with WCPT’s related subgroups and networks.
