In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and its progression, and after close consultation with our national and international stakeholders, the Organising Committee of the 14th World Down Syndrome Congress Dubai 2020 would like to announce the postponement of the congress from its originally scheduled date of 15-17 November 2020 to the next year 2021, at the same venue (Dubai World Trade Center). The new dates will be announced in due course.

As a result of the postponement of the World Down Syndrome Congress in Dubai, we will be moving the date of the WDSC in Brisbane, which was originally scheduled for 2022, until August 2024.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our main priority is the safety and well-being of our community. By moving the dates we aim to protect our delegates from any potential health risks, as well as avoid travel restrictions placed on countries that would limit the ability of some delegates from attending the congress.

A big thank you to everyone for your understanding. New dates will be announced in the coming months.
