The World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering will go to Adelaide in 2024.

The conference will take place from 2 to 18 October 2024,with 2,500 delegates from 89 countries attending including members from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and  United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR).

The president of host organisation, the International Union for Physical and Engineering Science in Medicine (IUPSEM), Professor James Goh, said that the energy and enthusiasm of the South Australian bid alongside a presentation of the destination’s technology and research contributed strongly to the voting for the host city.

"As the International Astronautical Congress put the focus of the Space Industry on Adelaide and bought about its resultant benefits, this too will open the doors to trade investment, skilled migration and future development of the Health Sciences and Medical industry," said Damien Kitto, CEO at the Adelaide Convention Bureau.

Professor Eva Bezak, UniSA, head of the local bidding committee added: "It will be an honour to be able to showcase the wonderful achievements that Adelaide has made in recent times in building the Biomed City and establish new relationships and partnerships leading to new collaborations and investment."
