The Brazilian Society of Dermatology is proud to announce Rio de Janeiro, the heart of Latin America, as a candidate city to host the WCD-2023.

Rio combines natural exuberance with a unique culture. With rhythms that liven up our dreams and some breathtaking landscapes, the city has a high-spirited atmosphere and endless possibilities.

It is in this mood that we want to host the WCD-2023. We have experience in planning and hosting major events. With over 221,000 hotel beds, Rio has excelled at hosting the World Cup and the Olympic Games.

Known for its welcoming nature – about 33% of the tourists in the city come from abroad – Rio is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world, boasting excellent infrastructure to welcome congress participants and their companions.


Over 700 major events of various kinds are expected to take place in Rio in 2018. With a renewed cosmopolitan and innovative atmosphere, the Marvelous City also has a relaxing costal city mood to it.


From the bossa nova to the Girl from Ipanema, from stunning beaches to the Corcovado and Sugarloaf mountains, Rio de Janeiro is always beautiful and waiting for WCD-2023 participants with open arms.
