BUSINESS Events Sydney (BESydney) has secured the rights to host the 12th Congress of the International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement in Sydney in 2013.
This will be the first time the bi-annual congress is held in Australia, and the event is expected to attract over 400 delegates to focus on all aspects of organ and tissue donation and procurement.
BESydney ambassador, Professor Jeremy Chapman, said: “This congress will bring the field’s leading academics, doctors, researchers, government and professional organisations together to debate, discuss and innovate.”
“Securing the event for Sydney is a huge success and I eagerly anticipate the outcomes of the congress for the future of organ donation and transplantation.”
Professor Chapman, a renal physician with a special interest in transplantation, had previously worked with BESydney to secure the 9th International Donor Registry Conference and WMDA Working Group Meetings for Sydney in 2012.
