The WFH Congress arrives in Orlando

The WFH is very proud to host the WFH 2016 World Congress in Orlando, Florida. This marks the first time in over 25 years that a WFH Congress has been held in the United States. The Congress is also expected to be best attended of all time, with almost 5,000 people from over 130 countries expected to participate over the next few days.

Most activities will take place in the superb Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). The OCCC is an extremely manageable venue for the congress, boasting world-class services, convenient hotel transportation, and, above all, a compact, convenient setting that is conducive to meeting, listening, learning and sharing.

As with all WFH Congresses, top researchers, scientists, clinicians, doctors, nurses, patients, and other people from the bleeding disorders community will come together to help advance knowledge and techniques—and ultimately, improve the lives of millions of people around the world who live with a bleeding disorder.

Take a moment to look at your Final Program to see what’s in store for you over the next four days. There will be something to satisfy every interest, including sessions, free papers, plenaries, crossfires and workshops presented by leading experts in the bleeding disorder community.

After a productive day at the Congress, the WFH encourages you to explore the Orlando area and see what the City Beautiful has to offer, from great food to exciting shopping to entertaining nightlife and theme parks. And, of course, don’t forget to participate in one (or more) of the many social events your WFH team has organized for you and your colleagues.

The best way to keep on top of everything that will be going on this week is to read the Congress Daily. We’ll be keeping you abreast of important events, and offering suggestions on what not to miss every day.
