BENEFITS OF HOSTING THE WORLD CONGRESS OF SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY (WCSPT)

The IFSPT understands that it is a great undertaking to host the WCSPT. Most host countries host the Congress within their organization's regular scheduled congresses.

  • The host congress receives extensive marketing support from the IFSPT Marketing Director. Sources of
    marketing include the IFSPT official website, social media channels, direct email newsletters, and via all
    IFSPT activities (Networking Session, Partnered conference, Webinars etc);
  • The host conference receives focused scientific program input from a designated experienced EB member,
    supporting their scientific committee in building a high quality, global, and equitable speaker panel;
  • Extended international exposure and recognition will likely result in higher attendance numbers than
    experienced at previous conferences and raise the global profile of the organization and its committee;
  • Ability to attract a global audience and internationally recognized experts making use of the IFSPT’s
    extensive network;
  • The President, and/or representatives from the IFSPT Executive Board, are available to the organizing
    committee to present within the scientific program, in addition to chairing scientific sessions.
