Sydney has been selected to host the World Congress on Endometriosis in May 2025. The Australian Society of Endometriosis worked with the bidding specialists at BESydney to clinch this event which will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney over four days.

The venue is expected to draw more than 1,000 people, generating an estimated A$3.9million (US$2.6 million) in direct expenditure.

BESydney CEO, Lyn Lewis-Smith, said, “Sydney was able to create an exceptional team of national representatives from across the spectrum of endometriosis research, clinical care and patient advocacy to lobby for this important event. We know that by bringing people together through events like this, delegates are provided the opportunity to contribute to ideas and solutions that will impact the lives and wellbeing of women around the globe.”

Tourism Australia managing director, Phillipa Harrison, said securing the 2025 World Congress on Endometriosis with support of the Business Events Bid Fund Program would consolidate Australia’s pipeline of future business events

Bid leader and clinical president for the Congress, professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology UNSW Sydney, Jason Abbott, said, “The World Congress on Endometriosis is the only congress in the world that focuses solely on endometriosis and the impact it has on all those with the disease. It brings scientists, clinicians, researchers, and patients together into one space with the united goal of finding answers to the disease.

“The World Congress on Endometriosis is unique since it not only highlights well-known experts to share their wisdom but elevates new and emerging investigators through abstract-driven plenary sessions to ensure that cutting edge technologies, ideas, and advances are adding to our understanding of endometriosis. Those 120 plus plenary presentations, based on the quality of abstracts submitted, are what make our Congress ground-breaking.”

Sydney’s other major health and life science events in 2023 include the FDI World Dental Congress, World Conference on Family Doctors (WONCA) and the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work.
