Dear Delegate,

In these very challenging times, our first thoughts go to all individuals and health care providers that are fighting the current Covid-19 global pandemic all around the world.

IUA and MCI regret to announce the cancellation of the XXIX IUA World Congress, due to take place in Rome, Italy from 23-27 April 2020.

The organizers have taken the time to collect reliable information, to carefully review the current and foreseeable future situation and to evaluate all potential options and this decision is taken in the context of the current Covid-19 global pandemic.

Due to these extraordinary circumstances beyond the control of the event organizers, the staging of this event as foreseen is now impossible.

Please find attached a list of FAQ’s together with responses, which we hope may be helpful in terms of answering any questions that you may have.

IUA and MCI would like to wish all delegates and their families the very best of health at this difficult time.

We hope to see you at another event in the near future.


Best wishes,


IUA 2020 Registration & Hotel Secretariat c/o MCI
