Here are 5 great reasons why should you attend WHC2024

19 March

The World Hospital Congress programme advances global healthcare leadership

Don’t take our word for it – delegates at last year’s Congress in Lisbon confirm the value of attending.

95% of respondents to the post-event survey agreed or strongly agreed that the content promoted improvements and good practices in healthcare leadership, management, and service delivery. And 94% were satisfied or very satisfied with the sessions in the programme.

Learning and networking is truly global at the World Hospital Congress

Feedback consistently tells us that our members value our activities which allow them to connect with others around experiences in other countries and regions and take that learning home to apply in their own contexts. And the World Hospital Congress is the only global forum for hospital and health delivery executives.

Last year, we welcomed representatives from 90+ countries and territories. Don’t miss your chance to engage in the international conversations and find creative solutions to the variety of challenges faced by today’s healthcare leaders.

Share your knowledge and forge collaborations with peers across the globe

There are opportunities to exchange and make new connections throughout the Congress. You can ask questions, share ideas, and join the discussion in scientific sessions across the programme. And there are workshops and dedicated networking events to engage with other delegates too. In the breaks, there are posters and exhibitions to explore.

The app helps you to participate in discussions, connect with presenters, exhibitors, and other attendees, enabling you to build relationships for future collaborations.

Celebrate success and take inspiration from proven projects and innovations

The scientific programme is packed with innovations, models, and examples of leadership practice in action. But the inspiring ideas don’t stop there. At Congress, we put excellence in the spotlight when we announce the winners of the IHF Awards. And we showcase innovations that are proven to work in healthcare delivery settings at the i-to-i Innovation Hub.

It’s not too late to submit your projects in the 7 categories for the IHF Awards, or your innovation for the Innovation Hub showcase – entries are open until 19 April.

Go beyond the main programme to take your Congress experience further

Adding to all the knowledge you will gain in the main programme, you can pack your schedule with extra learning. Stay tuned – we will soon announce pre- and post-Congress hospital visits and masterclasses that you can sign up for.

Finally, don’t forget to round-out your visit by taking in some of the extraordinary cultural highlights that the host city, Rio de Janeiro, has to offer.
