IAPRD World Cup Competition

Be part of the IAPRD World Cup Competition and receive exclusive registration and accommodation benefits for our 2019 meeting in Montreal.

Round of 16 IAPRD World Cup Competition:
The 16 countries shown below have the highest registration rates to date for the IAPRD Congress in Lyon, August 19-22, 2018, and have therefore “qualified” for the IAPRD World Cup.

Rules: We are starting on a clean slate, with zero registrations for each qualifying country.
The competition runs from July 11 to July 22. The top 16 countries are arranged in brackets, similar to the World Cup, with the No. 1 against the No. 16 country, and so on. Each registration received within this 2-week period will be counted as ONE POINT. On July 22, the results from each bracket will be revealed, showing the quarter finalists, semi-finalists, and the IAPRD 2018 World Cup Champion!
The award announcement will be held at the IAPRD Opening Ceremonies on August 19, 2018.
The prize will be an extended early bird registration and hotel priority for all delegates from the World Cup Champion at the 2019 IAPRD Congress in Montreal.


Based on current registration we are proud to announce the countries participating in the quarter finals:

“…The 2017 conference covered the significant current issues and the subjects of various types and spectrum of cognitive impairment and dementia; pathophysiology, classification and subtypes of tremors, dystonia, hyperkinetic disorders are just a few to mention. … I returned with many take home messages with implications on changing clinical practice. The conference provided a forum for practice changing messages based on latest evidence, clear presentations and opportunity for discussions.”
