It is important to be aware that you may be contacted by phone or e-mail, or see advertising, by unauthorised individuals or companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit you with aggressive or deceptive tactics for congress registrations.

They may also misrepresent themselves as the official congress registration bureau and may illegally use the congress name or logo. Please be aware that such companies do not represent ICO, WOC or MCI and are not mandated to act on their behalf.

If you are contacted by someone asking if you need to register to the WOC2024® Congress, please do not complete your registration with such entities and do not process any of the payments they may request.

Registrations purchased in this manner will not give access to the WOC2024® Congress.
