Join the conversation. Shape the future. Be a part of the XXIII FIT World Congress in Geneva!

FIT World Congress 2025
WIPO HQ, Geneva 4- 6 September 2025
Exploring the theme:
Mastering the Machine: shaping an intelligent future

Join delegates from across the globe as they meet in the heart of Geneva for three days of immersion in the field of translating and interpreting, cutting-edge research, workshops, discussion and networking opportunities.

FIT Congress with a twist

This congress will be unlike any other. Instead of being hosted by a member association (sadly Costa Rica could not go ahead due to force majeure), it will be hosted by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), one of FIT’s external partners. WIPO is a specialized agency of the United Nations whose mission is to lead the development of a balanced and effective global intellectual property system that enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all. This event therefore promises a prestigious setting on the shores of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps for an extraordinary gathering of professionals.

What to Expect?

  • Cutting-edge Research: Discover the latest advancements.
  • Thought-provoking Discussions: Engage in meaningful conversations.
  • Networking Opportunities: Build connections with peers and leaders.
  • Stimulating presentations: Be inspired.

Why Attend?

In these transformative times of constant and rapid change, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. The FIT World Congress offers a unique opportunity to gain insights, share knowledge, and collaborate with other passionate professionals. Network with a diverse, international audience of practitioners, researchers, service providers, key thinkers, advocates and decision makers all in one place.
