Unauthorised Providers

  • Please be vigilant when making online registration and accommodation reservations. Many large events are targeted by fraudulent or unauthorised websites offering accommodation and registration to delegates. Often these websites are designed to look like the official Congress website. Online registration for FIGO is only ever provided through this official FIGO Congress website (www.figo2023.org), and FIGO can only allow delegates access to the event if they have registered and paid via the official FIGO Congress website. FIGO will make best efforts to report fraudulent websites to the relevant authorities but cannot control external websites and cannot take responsibility for delegates that make bookings and payments via fraudulent or unauthorised websites.

Insurance

  • Delegates are advised to take out their own insurance to cover travel, personal possessions and cancellation. FIGO cannot protect delegates against cancellation of bookings, cancellation or disruption of travel, or theft or damage to personal possessions.
  • In the unlikely event the Congress is cancelled or postponed, FIGO is unable to refund any travel and/or accommodation costs that have already been incurred by the delegate, or any administration charges relating to cancellation of travel or accommodation.

Programme

  • All efforts will be made to deliver the scientific programme as advertised. FIGO and its suppliers reserve the right to alter or cancel without prior notice any of the arrangements for reasons beyond FIGO’s reasonable control. FIGO and its suppliers are not liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such alterations.
  • Some of the information provided in the programme will be provided by external sources. Although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy of the content, FIGO accepts no responsibly in that regard.
  • FIGO does not endorse or recommend any products or services provided or promoted by Congress sponsors. Activities carried out by Congress sponsors are not planned, sponsored or endorsed by FIGO. Sponsored symposia are not part of, or an official activity of, FIGO. The content of sponsored activities and opinions expressed by presenters are those of the sponsor or presenters and not of FIGO.
  • FIGO is committed to its events being representative of the varied experiences of the attending delegates. FIGO will make every effort to ensure all Congress programme activities are diverse and representative in terms of gender and regional representation. FIGO cannot guarantee that unforeseen or last-minute circumstances will not result in some sessions becoming less gender or geographically balanced than originally intended, due to speaker changes.

Language

  • Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in English, French and Spanish for all plenary sessions. Other scientific sessions will be conducted in one of these languages without interpretation. No other languages will be available.
