2021 World Cancer Congress

2021 World Cancer Congress Brandmark

Please note that due to the global coronavirus pandemic, the World Cancer Congress has been delayed to 16-18 March 2021 (it was originally due to take place in October 2020). For more information, visit worldcancercongress.org.

The Oman Cancer Association in collaboration with the National Oncology Centre of the Royal Hospital Muscat will be hosting the 26th edition of the World Cancer Congress. The 2021 theme "The Way Forward" sets the tone of the Congress to serve as a platform for the cancer control and NCD communities to move advancements in cancer control in the right direction. 

Over 3,500 delegates are expected to gather in Oman, where they will exchange best practices in an effort to make headway in the global fight against cancer. They will share lessons learned from the challenges they have encountered, build on successes and exchange useful and innovative tools that have had a marked impact at a regional, national and global scale.

The 2021 Congress Programme will be articulated around eight themes covering the full cancer spectrum.

Based on feedback from the last Congress, some new features have been introduced in the 2021 Congress intended to enhance the delegate experience. Those include:

  • The Cinema which aims to inspire delegates with the screening of powerful stories.
  • The introduction of a dedicated theme room to draw greater attention to science-based topics.
  • Increased time for networking opportunities in a warm and relaxed environment, designed to be more conducive to “experience sharing”.
  • The addition of  short “Meet the Expert” sessions which will follow the already popular “Big Debates” and Plenary sessions
  • Newly designed session formats to ensure participants are better engaged in discussions taking place on stage.
  • A range of new and exciting activities in the Global Village. We will reveal more soon, so please stay tuned to www.worldcancercongress.org

The Hosts are putting together a memorable agenda of events so that delegates leave Oman more inspired than ever.
