Welcome Message

 

Dear colleagues,

It is our great honor to invite urologists from all around Asia to 18th UAA Congress in the dynamic city of Seoul from October 14th to 17th, 2020. UAA has grown to be a world class congress in terms of quantity and quality, as well as science and social relations. With the strong supports from the Korean Urological Association, Seoul city government, and many pharmaceutical and instrumental companies, we will do our best to host a successful UAA conference. We expect the participation of about 1,500 delegates in 2020.

Through symposiums, lectures, round table discussions, videos, and presentations of our own research data, we will share our knowledge and experiences with all participants. The congress also aims to share key information and the latest updates on diverse urological fields such as uro-oncology, endourology, neuro-urology, female urology, andrology, pediatric urology, BPH, genitourinary infection, and more. Our knowledge on urological conditions is rapidly evolving, and the optimal management of Asian patients is an essential factor of this understanding, requiring up-to-date and clinically relevant information. In order to provide a better understanding of emerging challenges in the urology field, world renowned experts from numerous urologic fields will present and evaluate the modern scientific and clinical approaches being taken to resolve such challenges.

During your stay in this exciting and beautiful city, we hope you all will be able to enjoy Seoul to the fullest. You definitely do not want to miss traditional Korean food, the charming scenery, and the great night view of the city as well as the view of the castles and temples.

We hope this meeting will achieve great success in which all participants gain new and informative knowledge on urological diseases, and that it remains an unforgettable memory for all attendees.

Congress Venue

Coex Convention and Exhibition Center

Coex is the best of convention centers in Korea. Since opening in March of 1979, Coex has provided a global exchange platform where people and businesses come together through exhibitions and conferences. Coex has become a pillar of the Asian MICE market as both Seoul’s greatest exhibition venue and a tourist attraction with infrastructure to service all your business needs.

Coex is comprised of four stories above ground with 36,007㎡ of exhibition space and a floor area of 460,000㎡. Four exhibition halls can be partitioned into 12 separate spaces, including a convention hall with space for up to 7,000 people. Conference facilities boast 55 meeting rooms equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and operated by a cutting edge building management system.

In addition to the business facilities, Coex also offers a gateway to Korean culture. Situated next to Bongeun Temple and connected directly to the Coex Starfield Mall, Coex offers our guests the chance to connect to both ancient history and modern pop culture. Propelled by the opening of SMTown@Coex Artium, a juggernaut of Korean pop music, in 2015, and the designation of Gangnam as a Special Tourist Zone dedicated to the MICE industry, Coex has evolved into a center for business and culture alike. Coex also includes three 5-star hotels, Asia’s largest shopping mall, three multinational office skyscrapers, a cinema complex, and the city’s only airport terminal. Participants can enjoy the UAA 2020, entertainment, shopping, and culture at the same time!
