Welcome to the IAPRD 2021 World Congress in Maastricht, The Netherlands

Innovations and translations in parkinsonism & related disorders

On behalf of the Board of the International Association of Parkinsonism and Related Disorders, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the XXVI World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders to be held 1 – 4 May at the MECC in Maastricht, the Netherlands!

The IAPRD World Congress will bring together patients, movement disorder professionals working in neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and physical and occupational therapy to discuss the latest developments in our field. Saturday May 1 will begin with an informative program for Dutch, Belgian, and German patients in parallel with pre-congress academic courses for professionals. At the end of the day of formal programming, our opening ceremony extravaganza will take place.

Scientific sessions will commence on May 2nd with a focus on innovations in the field. There will be a rich collection of educational sessions, covering a diverse spectrum of movement disorders. The Congress will commence each day with a Plenary Session, covering the latest developments. These sessions will be followed by Parallel Tracks, as well as industry sponsored symposia, oral abstract presentations, and poster viewing. 

Time has additionally been allotted to enjoy the lovely scenic city of Maastricht. Maastricht is a Dutch city located in the southernmost corner of the country between Belgium and Germany. Maastricht is a unique amalgamation of the ancient and the modern: One of Europe’s oldest cities built on the site of a Roman settlement, it is also the birthplace of the euro. Befitting its reputation as a cultural hotspot, Maastricht offers an abundance of social venues and museums for visitors, ranging from a leisurely boat ride on the Meuse River, to a historical walk to examine the city’s national heritage buildings.

We look forward to seeing you in Maastricht in May 2021!

Best regards,
