The “White Nights” International Ophthalmology Congress, taking place annually in St. Petersburg, Russia in late May, is one of the leading Ophthalmology events in the region. Every year the Congress attracts over 2 000 participants from all over Russia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. For over a decade GCT has been the Exclusive Information Partner of the Congress, running the Congress website, providing organization and participant registration services.

This year, due to the global pandemic, the congress has been held as a hybrid event, with the speakers joining from the traditional congress venue rooms or remotely, and the registered participants accessing the video streams being broadcasted from the venue. Communication with the speakers was facilitated through an interactive chat in the member’s area on the congress website.

The virtual Congress has seen substantial growth in the participant numbers reaching over 5,400. GCT is proud to support the Congress in these challenging circumstances. We share our organizational expertise and technical capabilities to aid the delivery of the most recent and promising developments and updates in treatment to the medical professionals and the ophthalmic community.
