It gives us a great pleasure on behalf of the Hong Kong Sterile Services Management Association (HKSSMA) to invite and welcome you to the 21st World Sterilization Congress to be held from 25 to 28 November 2020 in Macao and Hong Kong.
Following the footsteps of the previous successful congresses, HKSSMA will work closely with WFHSS to provide you with a valuable opportunity to learn new advances in the field of sterilization, an interactive platform for exchange of experiences and a warm atmosphere for establishing collaboration networks.
Macao and Hong Kong are conveniently located at the centre of Asia with easy access for participants worldwide. Both Macao and Hong Kong are important gateway to the Mainland China with a marketplace of booming economies. HKSSMA has a strong connection with the colleagues in Asia especially those in the Mainland China. The Congress was only held in Asia once in Osaka of Japan in November 2012 with an attendance of about 1,300 delegates. We believe, with your active participation, the 21st Congress will attract well over 2,000 participants from around the globe.
Macao and Hong Kong are interesting places with perfect blending of East and West. Hong Kong is a metropolitan and information hub customized with vibrant life style, beautiful scenery and mixed cultures. The ‘Historic Centre of Macao’ was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage in 2005. There are more than 20 museums for your cultural visits. Fantastic shows and mouth-watering cuisines are easily available around the corners. There are many other things for you to explore at leisure in both Hong Kong and Macao.
We will be celebrating our 23rd anniversary and counting on your support to the 21st World Sterilization Congress. Please join us to promote the development of sterilization in this region of the world.
We look forward to meeting you in Macao and Hong Kong!
Rodger Kwai YU, Chairman of HKSSMA

Who should attend?
Together with the scientific committee of the WFHSS, this congress will focus on sharing knowledge on each level of sterilization and for each partner in the process.
