Dear Paralympic family,

I have the honor and pleasure to welcome you here in Egypt, the land of pharaohs, history, culture, and great civilizations.

It will be the first time in the history to organize IPC VISTA conference in Africa, we consider this to be a benchmark of Paralympic sports development in Africa and Middle East,  

One of the main objectives of our strategic plan for 2022-2024 is to develop and promote Paralympic Sports on a scientific basis and would like to take this opportunity to achieve our goals.

We are working closely with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Universities, and scientific committees of all sports entities.

Our intention is to organize this conference in a highly professional manner in cooperation and support of the International Paralympic Committee and attract researchers and participants from all over the world to attend and exchange their experiences and knowledge.

Cairo is a historic, cultural city, the capital of Egypt is ready to welcome participants from all over the world from the 30th of October till the 4th of November 2023 to attend the VISTA conference after 4 years, and we hope all participants enjoy their time in Cairo Egypt, and achieve their plan and needs.

We believe that the results of this conference will be a milestone in achieving remarkable progress and significant development in Egypt and Africa.
