After close consultation with our organising partners in Belgium, it is with deep disappointment that we face no alternative than to postpone the 13th World Congress 2020 for Design and Health in Ghent, Belgium to September 28 – October 1, 2020.

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the rapid spread across many countries, we believe this decision is in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety.

We apologise for the inconvenience that this decision will cause for those who have committed to participating in WC2020. It is our intention to limit the changes to the date only. We propose to maintain the current structure of the program, speakers, content and study tours – pending availability. WC2020 will still be held in Ghent and we plan to hold the judging process for the design awards virtually in April as scheduled. The Gala dinner will remain a celebration of the award winners.
The WC2020 Organising Committee have now secured September 28 – October 1, 2020 as the new Congress date. We hope to be able to count on your ongoing enthusiasm and trust that we will still see you at WC2020 later in the year.
