31st World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology to be held in Korea in 2021
The event will take place in Seoul for five days, sometime in late September to early October of 2021, welcoming approximately 2000 clinicians, academics, and industry experts from 75 countries.
The decision was unveiled during the culmination of the 2018 World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology held last week at Singapore, following a competitive bid process against other Asian cities including Japan and India.
“Hosting the World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology presents an opportunity to showcase Korea’s advanced developments in the ultrasound sector to a worldwide audience,” said Dr. Moon Young Kim, president of the Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (KSUOG).
“More so, it is a step forward for KSUOG as it will promote active academic exchanges with overseas medical practitioners and academics, and strengthen the knowledge expertise in the domestic region.”
Korea Tourism Organization convention marketing team director In Sook Lee said the bid win was a result from the successful hosting of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
