Unauthorised providers

Unfortunately many large international conferences are being targeted by fraudulent or unauthorised websites offering online registrations to delegates and exhibitors. Often these websites are designed to look like official websites, but they are not. Please be vigilant when making plans for Congress. Online registration is only ever provided through this official Congress website.
 
Please check any registration/confirmation emails you receive end in ‘@isuog.org’. If you are unsure about any transaction or email, please email [email protected] and we will investigate your concerns.

Data protection

Personal data collected by ISUOG during the registration process is used to fulfil delegate attendance at the Congress and for delegates who qualify for ISUOG membership to fulfil their membership. ISUOG will use the contact information collected leading up to the Congress to notify delegates of Congress-related activities. We transmit personally identifiable data to third parties (data processors) only to the extent required to fulfil the terms of your contract with us, for example, to service providers to allow you to register and attend the virtual event or onsite event. Data is not provided to third parties without delegate approval or legitimate interest.

Delegates must opt in to related questions on the registration form to take advantage of additional benefits. ISUOG takes no responsibility for delegates who do not read the data protection questions on the form in full or for those who do not actively opt in who wish to receive these additional benefits provided by third parties. Delegates have the right to withdraw consent given at any time by emailing [email protected].

The ISUOG World Congress and the environment 

We are very conscious that holding large events poses big challenges when it comes to the environment. With that in mind, we are trying to reduce our waste and carbon footprint where we can, and encouraging all our event partners to do the same.
 
What are we doing to try and avoid waste and reduce our carbon footprint at the ISUOG World Congress?
 
  • Reducing printed materials: We are reducing the amount of printed items we distribute at the Congress year on year, to avoid waste. We provide a Congress app, digital materials and a digital poster portal instead. We will also use recycled or recyclable materials where we can
  • Choosing our menus thoughtfully: Catering options will be locally sourced where possible. This year, we will also trial a fully vegetarian day
  • Minimising food waste and re-distributing leftovers: We always order our catering very carefully to avoid food waste. This year we are pleased to say that in addition, the venue has a permanent contract with a local charity that receives and distributes any leftover food to vulnerable communities, to reduce food waste
  • Minimising use of temporary materials: Since 2022, we have only used temporary carpeting where essential in our event space, to avoid waste. We will also try to use recycled or recyclable carpet where we have to have carpet
  • Encouraging use of public transport: We encourage delegates to use public transport where possible. This year, the Budapest Convention Bureau have kindly arranged a limited number of complimentary public transport tickets, which will be available to reserve during registration on a first come, first serve basis
  • Encouraging our industry partners, Congress venue and suppliers to do the same: We ask our industry partners to take the same measures as us at a minimum. We also include sustainability measures in our Requests for Proposals from event venues and suppliers
 
How can delegates help at ISUOG 2024?
 
  • Drinking water: There will be water fountains onsite. Please bring a re-usable water bottle to the Congress to reduce single-use plastic cups or bottles
  • Re-usable items: Please make sure you re-use or recycle any Congress materials that you keep, such as lanyards or bags. Please return your lanyard at the end of the Congress, if you don’t need it
  • Waste: While onsite for the ISUOG Congress please dispose of your waste considerately and recycle where possible
  • Travel: We encourage any delegates who can, to travel by rail instead of air when visiting Budapest for the Congress, and to use public transport to get around the city, where possible
 
Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions on how we can improve our sustainability efforts for future congresses by emailing: [email protected].
 
For anyone who does not want to travel to the ISUOG World Congress 2024 due to the impact of travel on the environment, there are various other ISUOG activities available for online attendance throughout the year.
