IDF Congress 2021 Bangkok

Last update: 14/09/2020

The next IDF Congress will take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 6-9 December 2021.

IDF is excited to bring this event to the ASEAN community, comprising of over 600 million people in 10 countries. Diabetes is causing an unprecedented human and economic toll on the region and there is a lot of room for development when it comes to the standard of diabetes care provided. Thailand is a well-suited destination for the IDF Congress. With a rich cultural heritage, the country offers an excellent meeting venue and facilities and legendary hospitality and friendliness.

We look forward to welcoming the global diabetes community in Bangkok to share knowledge and expertise and shape the future of diabetes.
