Seoul to Host International Biology Congress in 2018

Seoul has won the bid to host the 2018 International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) Congress, a major triennial gathering of the world’s scientific community. The Korean capital was declared the host venue for the high-profile event by the IUBMB board of directors on September 4th in Seville, Spain. The successful bid follows many months of close cooperation between the Seoul Convention Bureau, who provided the services of its free bidding clinic, the Korea-based organisation representing the Union, and local professional convention organisers MECI International.

The congress will bring to Seoul over 6,000 visitors from over 45 countries, including academics, corporate research specialists, and businesses in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology. It is expected to be of further significance with 2018 also marking the IUBMB’s 70th anniversary since the Union first formed in 1955

The IUBMB was founded in 1955 and is devoted to promoting research and education in biochemistry and molecular biology throughout the world and gives particular attention to areas where the subject is still in the early stages of development. IUBMB congresses are held every three years.

IUBMB 2018 is scheduled to take place at the Coex convention & exhibition center, which has previously hosted the Seoul G-20 Summit and Seoul National Security Summit in 2010 and 2012 respectively. An exact date for the congress is yet to be determined.
