The World Federation of Neurology invites expressions of interest from suitable core Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs) for the biennial World Congress of Neurology (WCN). ​The WCN is a live biennial congress held in rotating cities from the 6 WFN world regions, after an internal bidding process. The October 2021 WCN was fully virtual and it is envisaged that the next WCNs will be hybrid. The WCN is held over 4 to 5 days and attracts between 4000-9000 delegates

The appointed PCO will be responsible for organising three WCNs, initially 2025, and then 2027 and 2029. The first of these is to be held in Seoul, South Korea at the COEX Convention Center in the Autumn 2025.

WFN will shortlist the selected PCOs on the basis of details provided in EoI and subsequent consultation, if necessary.  A further shortlisting process will take place and the selected PCOs will be invited to bid through a Request for Proposal (RfP) process and may submit a detailed proposal with the technical and financial aspects outlined.

For more information on eligibility criteria and timelines for the selection process, please click here.

Interested parties are asked to contact the Chairman of the WFN Congress Committee at Shortlisted companies will be invited to make their presentations later in the year at a venue to be decided.

Closing date for Expressions of Interest: 12 March, 2022
