Book your place on a congress course
Pre- and post-congress courses are selling fast - register by 31st January. 

Courses give delegates the opportunity to make the most of attending congress and learn directly from experts via a range of learning formats. They focus on applied knowledge and skills, giving an additional opportunity to explore issues in depth and gain practical experience.

A wide range of subjects are on offer with half, one and two day courses available. A number of courses are also offering support in other languages.
See the full list: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/courses. If you are planning to attend a course make sure you register by 31st January as the viability of all courses will then be decided. Those with low numbers may be cancelled.

If you have already registered you can still add a course to your registration via the online registration system.

If you are registering from a low or lower middle-income country, WCPT has reserved at least three spaces on each course that will be available at a reduced fee for those delegates. To apply for one of these places enter the course lottery by 31st January: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BZJDFJR. No pre-booking is necessary, but you must be registered for the congress.
Tickets now available for opening ceremony
Tickets are now available for the opening ceremony and welcome networking reception. If you are not registered for the full congress but would still like to attend these events, you can now purchase a ticket via the online registration system. Tickets may also be bought for accompanying colleagues and friends who may not be attending congress.
