FURTHER POSTPONEMENT of the 9th World Rett Syndrome Congress which was to take place in Surfers Paradise (Gold Coast), Australia, in September 2021
NEW Dates 28th Sept to 1st Oct 2022
The QT Hotel, Gold Coast, which is located in Surfers Paradise, Queensland, will remain as the Congress
Presenters who originally accepted RSAA’s invitation to speak at the Congress are being notified of the latest
postponement and will be reinvited. Hopefully, the revised dates will not affect their availability.
Work continues on building the Congress website https://rettworldcongress.org to a point where it will
meet the information needs of potential attendees. Online registration for the Congress is now open which
may be of particular interest to Australian families who have included, or wish to include, coverage of the
registration fees in their National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plans.
An online abstract submission portal has been completed but won’t be available for submissions until early
In the meantime
One thing for certain is that during the upcoming months, RSAA will push on with its task of organising the
World Rett Syndrome Congress. It is hoped that there will be no more postponements and the COVID-19
situation reaches some degree of stability around the world in the near future.
