The 2016 World Cancer Congress hits new highs, the official report reveals

20 December 2016

The official report compiles the best Congress moments and highlights the key results drawn upon the answers of the survey respondents.

During almost a week in Paris, the 2016 World Cancer Congress became the centre of global exchange and education in the area of cancer control for 3260 leaders and experts from 169 countries. 500 speakers engaged audiences across 144 multidisciplinary sessions. In addition, 1,122 media articles were published, expanding the conversation beyond the exhibition centre walls. A first for the Congress!

After such an exciting time, we were keen to hear about the participants' experience through our online survey. And we haven't been disappointed...We received many suggestions that will help us shape the next Congress story in Kuala Lumpur in 2018. 

We are also delighted to reveil the first engagement figures: 85% of participants rated the Paris Congress from very good to outstanding while 96% would recommend the conference to a colleague.
