IDF Diabetes Complications Congress

Last update: 15/10/2020

IDF has been very closely monitoring the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and, with second waves underway in a number of countries, has felt it necessary to take the difficult decision of postponing the IDF Diabetes Complications Congress 2020, planned in Lisbon, Portugal on 3-5 December. The Congress will be rescheduled to the 3-5 November 2022 at the same venue and with a similar format. For any enquiries, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

The IDF Diabetes Complications Congress is a new series of IDF live educational events focused on tackling the issues around complications associated with diabetes.

The increase in rates of diabetes across the globe brings with it an increase in diabetes complications. Poor diabetes management, whether through lack of education, limited access to care or undiagnosed conditions, means diabetes complications are a real problem in most countries.

Following the succesful launch of this new congress series in Hyderabad, India in 2018, IDF invites you to Lisbon for an update on the latest research, treatments and tools to manage, treat and prevent diabetes complications. The ultimate goal is to improve outcomes and quality of life for people with diabetes. 

The IDF Diabetes Complications Congress in Lisbon is organised in collaboration with the Portuguese Diabetes Association (APDP). 


The congress will be held in the Centro de Congressos de Lisboa CCL, located on the river Tagus and in the historical area of Belem. This comfortable and pleasant venue offers spacious auditoriums, meeting facilities and exhibition space, all conveniently located and within easy reach.
