The 31st World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology will take place in Seoul for five days, sometime in late September to early October of 2021, welcoming approximately 2,000 clinicians, academics, and industry experts from 75 countries.

Korea has once again successfully won a bid to host a large-scale conference - the 31st World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology. The event will take place in Seoul for five days, sometime in late September to early October of 2021, welcoming approximately 2,000 clinicians, academics, and industry experts from 75 countries.

The decision was unveiled during the culmination of the 2018 World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology held last October 24, 2018, at Singapore, following a competitive bid process against other Asian cities including Japan and India.

Korea Tourism Organization (KTO), Seoul Tourism Organization (STO), and other Korean representatives supported the bid led by Korea MICE Ambassadors: Dr. Moon Young Kim M.D., President of the Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (KSUOG), and Dr. Jay Kwon M.D., KSUOG Chair of International Affairs.

Commenting on the win, Dr. Moon Young Kim said, “Hosting the World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology presents an opportunity to showcase Korea’s advanced developments in the ultrasound sector to a worldwide audience. More so, it is a step forward for KSUOG as it will promote active academic exchanges with overseas medical practitioners and academics, and strengthen the knowledge expertise in the domestic region.”

KTO Convention Marketing Team Director In Sook Lee added, “The successful bid of the 2021 ISUOG in Korea is a result from the excellent hosting of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and the relaxation of tensions on the Korean peninsula, along with Korea's excellent meeting infrastructure and tourism activities.”

Founded in 1991, the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) aims to improve women’s health through scientific research and technological advancement focusing on ultrasound. Its growing community has reached over 13,000 members in 127 countries. Previous congresses were held in Singapore (2018), Austria (2017), Italy (2016), Canada (2015), and Spain (2014).
