Reminder: 2020 World Congress – Call for Proposals

This is a reminder that the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) is accepting proposals to host the 2020 World Congress until June 30, 2018.

The bi-annual congress is the hallmark of the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics. Every two years, education professionals gather in a member country to hear the latest trends, best practices and network with their peers in the professional and technical education and training sector. The Congress programs are informed by the Federation’s Affinity Groups and the host nation’s local cultural flair.

The host nation bears the responsibility for planning the Congress. Hosting a World Congress involves working with the WFCP Board of Directors, arranging a venue, developing a funding plan, working with industry and local and international organizations to develop an exhibit hall, and forming local partnerships with educational institutions or agencies to help the program committee form a theme for the Congress, amongst others. Included below is the Federation’s Guide to Hosting the World Congress, which gives details on expectations of the host and the Congress in general.

The selected host will be informed by August 31st, 2018 and the official announcement will be made at the 2018 World Congress closing ceremony, on October 10th, 2018.

Proposals will be accepted only from member organizations or institutions. Please submit your bid, including a draft budget, by June 30th, 2018 to the Secretariat at secretariat@wfcp.org. If you have questions about the bid process or hosting the World Congress, please contact the Secretariat.
