Registration process

Registration for delegates is completed on-line by going to the following link: HERE 
Note that invited speakers, sponsors who benefit from complimentary registrations and exhibitors will be supplied with a different link.

The steps are straightforward and corrections and amendments can be made at any stage. People who have already used the Currinda registration system for another conference will be able to use their existing record. The Currinda system is powered by the World Cancer Congress appointed agency, ASN Events. 

Unlike other systems, the registration portal will let you create an enduring profile which you can return to at any stage. Your record is continuously kept up to date with your registration details, invoices and paperwork, abstract submission, accommodation, extra details, invitation letters for visa applications, preferences and payment status. Bookmark the link so you can return when needed.

As you register online for the World Cancer Congress, you will be able to:

  • Book your hotel accommodation in Melbourne at exclusive discounted rates - limited availability
  • Request an invitation letter to facilitate your VISA application
  • Upoload your bio and photo
