ITI World Symposium 2020: Get ready for the celebrations

The ITI is turning 40 – get ready for the ITI World Symposium 2020 in Singapore! For the first time ever, the ITI is taking its flagship event to Asia. By choosing Singapore, we wanted to highlight the increasing importance of this region to our organization. We think that everyone will enjoy Singapore, not just as a congress city but also a great destination for some time off to relax.

About the ITI World Symposium

As the ITI’s flagship event that is held every three years, the ITI World Symposium sets the benchmark high and is eagerly awaited. 70 speakers will be sharing their expertise with the 6,000 participants who are expected to attend the event. A novel approach has been taken to the scientific program of the 2020 edition that puts the patient at the center of all its deliberations. The event’s seven sessions will each be introduced by a patient scenario that sets the stage for the following presentations. Patients will tell their story in their own words, focusing on the aspects of the medical issue that are important to them. In their presentations, speakers will be responding directly to the questions and concerns raised by the patient, talking about how their quality of life is affected and the options open to each patient. Following on from its airport-themed design in 2017, the interior design setting for the World Symposium 2020 is arrival in the beautiful city state of Singapore. This custom-built interior is in a class of its own: During the three-day Symposium at the Singapore Expo Convention and Exhibition Centre, participants will be able to relax in surroundings inspired by Singapore, its architecture and history, and taste a little of the city’s diverse and delicious culinary offering.
