On behalf of the IMS Board I regret to inform you that we have had come to the difficult decision to not proceed with the 17th World Congress on Menopause that was intended to take place in Melbourne from Thursday 4th February through to Sunday 7th February 2021.
This decision is disappointing for us all, but we are confident this is the correct decision with the persistence of the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe.
We have set in place a process for all the registrants to obtain a full reimbursement of the registration fee. This requires you to please send us your request through the online cancellation form. The reimbursements will be processed starting from September 21. Moreover all of those registered for the Melbourne Congress will be provided with a 20% discount code for the 2022 Congress in Lisbon.
On behalf of the IMS, I wish to thank all the speakers, registrants, sponsors and suppliers, as well as the Australasian Menopause Society who have been so supportive in our planning of this congress, and who I know also share our disappointment.
We will now redirect our energy to planning the next World Congress on the Menopause to be held in Lisbon Congress in October 2022.
The IMS Board looks forward to welcoming you in Lisbon for a wonderful congress in 2022.
Prof. Susan Davis,
President, International Menopause Society
