Around 2000 of the world’s leading cancer experts will descend upon Brisbane in 2026 for the World Congress of the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies. The event, which will take place in Australia for the first time, was secured after competitive bidding process, and is expected to generate $4.8 million for the Queensland economy. BCEC advocate professor Sandro Porceddu said “Key factors in selecting Brisbane as the host city are its world leading institutions and minds in cancer research.”
The event has been described as the Olympics for head and neck cancer. Hopefully sans doping and flag stealing.
