Although the ILF 2016 conference planning (Darwin, May 2016) is well underway, we are inviting interested parties to submit their proposals to host the 2017 event in their countries. The final decision of where the next conference is held will be made by the ILF Board of Directors. To assure a successful outcome and financial feasibility, criteria will include:
- National Country Frameworks already established or close to being established will be given priority
- bidding organization has the infrastructure and resources in place to help organize the event, e.g. in terms of registration and finance handling
- strong relationships within the bidding country among lymphedema organizations to deliver collaborative support
- financial support from local convention and visitor bureaux for sponsorships
