ISBNPA Annual Meeting Locations for 2026 and 2029 Decided!

We are thrilled to announce that the International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) has finalized the locations for its prestigious Annual Meeting in 2026 and 2029. After careful consideration, evaluation, and extensive discussions, the bid evaluation committee, consisting of five independent reviewers, reached a decision.

For the year 2026, we are delighted to inform you that Cádiz has been selected as the host city for ISBNPA’s Annual Meeting. With its rich cultural heritage, stunning beaches, and vibrant atmosphere, Cádiz promises to offer an incredible backdrop for scientific exchange and networking. Delegates can look forward to exploring this beautiful coastal city while immersing themselves in cutting-edge research on behavioral nutrition and physical activity.

Turning our attention to 2029, we are equally thrilled to reveal that Glasgow will be hosting ISBNPA’s Annual Meeting. Known for its warm hospitality, world-class conference facilities, and iconic landmarks such as the Glasgow Science Centre and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow will undoubtedly provide an exceptional setting for fostering collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in the field of behavioral nutrition and physical activity.

It is important to note that the selection process was meticulous and comprehensive. The bid evaluation committee meticulously reviewed each bid against a set of pre-determined criteria. The criteria encompassed factors like venue suitability, accessibility, local support systems, accommodation options, transportation links, cost considerations, and more. After individual scoring by each reviewer followed by extensive discussions among committee members regarding their respective assessments of the bids’ strengths and weaknesses, a final recommendation was reached.

We are also pleased to inform you that this recommendation was recently ratified by the ISBNPA Executive Committee on December 19th, 2023. This endorsement solidifies Cádiz as the destination for ISBNPA2026 and Glasgow as the host city for ISBNPA2029.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to both Cádiz and Glasgow for their successful bids. We also express our gratitude to all the cities that submitted their proposals, demonstrating their enthusiasm and commitment to promoting and advancing behavioral nutrition and physical activity research.

Mark your calendars, as these upcoming Annual Meetings are not to be missed! Stay tuned for further updates regarding program details, keynote speakers, registration, and more. We look forward to welcoming you in Cádiz in 2026 and Glasgow in 2029 for remarkable scientific discourse and memorable experiences.
