New WBS 2021 program, new hybrid event, face-to-face and online

11 January

Due to social and health restrictions, World Blindness Summit 2021 is adapted and will be held with a hybrid model that mixes face-to-face presentations and online webinars.

World Blindness Summit Madrid was going to be held in June 2020, but the social and health circumstances and the global pandemic of COVID-19 have forced the organizers, Grupo Social ONCE, the World Blind Union (WBU) and ICEVI, to adapt the event to the new reality and possibilities.

In this way, the dates 28-30 June 2021 are established for the celebration of the World Blindness Summit Madrid 2021 and a hybrid format that mixes face-to-face events, under all the rules of safety, health, capacity and extreme hygiene, with the online events, through various webinars and telematic sessions on platforms specially enabled and for the occasion.

The registration process for this World Blindness Summit Madrid 2021 will open on January 20, 2021 and the provisional Program and Agenda can now be consulted, subject to modifications.
