About World Congress 2022

It is my pleasure to invite you to RCOG World Congress 2022, where we can all exchange ideas and catch up on the latest advancements in women’s health.

I am thrilled to see the innovation and versatility being used to deliver this special hybrid event. The bespoke virtual platform means you can switch between streams and watch all the ground-breaking talks you want. Not to mention, the virtual platform and Congress app have been designed to support networking and the sharing of knowledge throughout the event.

This year’s programme covers the hottest topics in women’s health, lively debates, and presents research from across the globe. In case you are unable to watch all the talks live, I am pleased to let you know you will be able to access all Congress content on-demand so that you can go back at a time that suits you.

I look forward to seeing you at this special three-day event in June.

Why hybrid?

RCOG World Congress 2022 will be our first ever hybrid World Congress, with a 350 in-person event running alongside an interactive virtual platform.

Accessible and inclusive

We want to ensure that a vital educational event such as RCOG World Congress remained inclusive and accessible to anyone who wants to attend.

 

With unpredictability around travel restrictions and other pandemic-related issues, we wanted to provide a flexible model that enables people to join the Congress from wherever they are in the world.

Feedback

RCOG World Congress 2021 saw over 2,800 participants join across four days and feedback for our bespoke platform was overwhelmingly positive. Virtual delegates said they appreciated the flexibility and on-demand nature, as well as the positive environmental and sustainability impact.

 

Others told us that they value in-person events and were looking forward to face-to-face networking. 

Digital transformation

Utilising state-of-the-art digital technology is a strategic aim of the College to ensure we are delivering first class services for the global O&G community.

 

Since the start of the pandemic, the RCOG has delivered a series of hugely popular digital events and the successful digitalisation of our exams.

 

Following the success of our first virtual World Congress in 2021, we wanted to ensure we continued to provide the opportunity to join this event remotely.
