Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We would like to cordially invite you to join us in MARSEILLE, France, for the 22nd WCBIP/WCBE from October 6th to 9th, 2022.

Organized by the WABIP and IBES, our biennial international meeting is dedicated to Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology and will offer high-caliber scientific programs with emphasis on new bronchoscopy techniques, technologies and hands-on procedure workshops in which you can meet and collaborate with colleagues from all around the world.

The pandemic has changed the format of conferences in general. And as we have seen in our most recent WCBIP, purely virtual events can be just as successful as traditional ones. The 22nd WCBIP shall be a “hybrid” event that will adopt this new format of meetings while accommodating those who can be on-site in beautiful Marseille, France.

In this congress, we will reinforce the importance of interventional pulmonology in this ever-changing world. Indeed globalization marks a break in physical space and a break in communication times that permeate our daily lives and medical practices. We will maximize communication technologies to offer equal education regardless of attendees’ places of participation. This presents a great opportunity for our 10,000 worldwide WABIP members to get all the latest information regarding advances in technologies, education, and research in the field of lung airway and pleural disorders through our numerous didactic lectures, interactive sessions, and expert panel discussions.

We warmly welcome you in Marseille in October 2022 for this exciting event to share scientific expertise, but also to meet friends and enjoy the gentle and sincere hospitality of the people by the Mediterranean Sea.
