TAIPEI--Taiwan has won the bid to host the 32nd World Congress of Endourology (WCE) in 2014, the ninth academy event the country has successfully vied to host this year, according to Taiwan's trade promotion body.
It will be Taiwan's first time to host the WCE, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) said, adding that it will be a great opportunity to strengthen Taiwan's prestige in endourology.
The bidding to host the academy was highly competitive, but in the end, Taiwan managed to stand out from the seven other countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, Italy, France, Germany, Austria and Argentina, TAITRA said in a statement.
The congress is scheduled to take place Sept. 3-7 at the Taipei International Convention Center, with a coinciding expo at the Taipei World Trade Center.
The expo will include a fair attended by some 100 businesses, the organizers said, adding there will also be a number of seminars over the five-day period.
