2016 World Cancer Congress

An award winning conference dedicated to empowering UICC members by building capacity for change

We are thrilled to announce that UICC has won the “Best Conference Development” award at the 2016 International & European Association Awards. 

The award recognised the development of the Congress over the past few years, including some of its innovative features aimed at building capacity across UICC membership.

The award was presented by the Society of Association Executives, which represents one of the largest community of associations and has been established to facilitate excellence in leadership, development and service in membership organisations. In this year’s edition, the World Cancer Congress was recognised for strengthening its focus on cancer implementation science, while also increasing essential features such as best practice sharing, education and training initiatives, as well as networking opportunities.

Take advantage of the "Springtime in Paris" registration offer for UICC members – Save up to EUR 110 by registering before 31 May
Make sure that you enrol on a Master Course too, and sign up for one of the exceptional social events whilst there is still availability.

Building Capacities of our Members
The “Best Conference Development” award highlights the focus that the conference has placed over the last few editions on developing a programme that stimulates interaction amongst the international cancer community. Renowned for being an exceptional educational platform attracting the world’s leaders in cancer and public health, the conference facilitates best practice sharing in an inspiring and unique set-up.

Amongst the many opportunities available, we will focus on two unique features, specifically designed to meet the demands of our Members...
