World Leisure invites abstracts for ‘hybrid’ 16th Congress
December 10, 2020

The World Leisure Organisation is inviting interested parties to submit their abstracts for presentations for its 16th World Leisure Congress.

With the theme Leisure Makes Life Better, the Congress, being held in a hybrid format, aims to provide the space to learn from and network with leading experts in the leisure field.

In a statement, World Leisure advises “we are inviting the entire global WLO community to connect with each other to share and explore new ideas, current challenges and opportunities.

“The 16th World Leisure Congress will be hosted in a hybrid mode giving the opportunity for a face to face and an online experience, no matter where you are.

“In these uncertain times we are calling the global leisure field community to raise the voice and advocate for the importance and relevance of leisure.”

Those who submit abstracts will benefit from free registration to present online.

The abstract submission deadline falls on Friday 18th December 2020.
