NEW for 2019: It's my first time at congress!
Will you be attending your first WCPT congress in Geneva?

4,500 people have registered to attend congress - for more than 60% of delegates this will be their first WCPT congress, and some people may be visiting Europe for the first time.

If you're a first-timer, make sure you visit the WCPT stand in the exhibition hall and pick up a sticker to let people know 'It's my first time at congress!' And remember to join us at the WCPT Friends session in the Indaba Zone on Saturday 11 May, 10:45-11:30, to meet other delegates who are new to the congress experience and get some tips and advice from more experienced congress delegates.

You can start connecting with other delegates NOW on the Congress Connect Facebook group.
