Welcome to the 9th IPCRG World Conference & 1st Ibero-American Primary Care Respiratory Meeting 

The 9th IPCRG World Conference and the 1st Ibero-American Primary Care Respiratory Meeting will take place in the wonderful city of Porto, Portugal. The meeting will take place from 31 May 2018 to the 2 June 2018 at the Alfândega Congress Centre, a former Customs House located in Porto’s historic city centre. The Alfândega Congress Centre was awarded “Best Meetings and Conference Centre – Europe 2014”, which makes it an ideal venue for our conference. We look forward to welcoming you to Porto in 2018.

The town that gave the country (and port wine) its very name, Porto is Portugal’s second-largest metropolis after Lisbon. Sometimes called Oporto, it’s an age-old city that has one foot firmly in the industrial present. The old town, centered at Ribeira, was built on the hills overlooking the Douro River, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 14th-century São Francisco church is a main attraction, as are the local port wine cellars, mostly located across the river at Vila Nova de Gaia.

Conference Address: The Congress Centre, Alfândega do Porto

Dates: 31 May – 2 June 2018

We have worked hard with a world-wide team of primary care colleagues to produce a varied and inspiring programme that addresses many of the issues you face to improve the care of people you see in primary care with respiratory conditions.

IPCRG 2018 offer a comprehensive scientific programme as well as important networking opportunities allowing delegates to come together with colleagues to discuss respiratory care and new developments.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to enjoy the excellent educational and networking opportunities and the opportunity to visit beautiful Porto will make your trip a rewarding and unforgettable experience. 
There are reduced registration fees for GRESP & GRAP members and delegates from low and lower-middle income countries. We also offer a standard delegate fee, regardless of date of registration, for nurses, pharmacists and other allied healthcare professionals.
