Spread the Word and Be a WAO Star: Post a World Allergy Congress (WAC 2015) Selfie

Dear Colleagues,

The XXIV World Allergy Congress (WAC 2015) in Seoul is fast approaching!

The World Allergy Organization (WAO) invites you and your colleagues to take part in the WAC 2015 Selfie Campaign. To show the global reach of WAC 2015, we are asking you to take part of the campaign and take a selfie.

Here is what you have to do to take part in the campaign and receive a discount for WAC 2015:

  • Take a photo of yourself with this sign highlighting a local or national landmark.
  • Post the photo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
  • Use the hashtags: #WAC2015 and #WAC2015Selfie

Here is a great example from the EAACI junior member, Alberto Alvarez-Perea:

“Ready for World Allergy Organization ‪#‎WAC2015 from 3000-year-old Sancti Petri Castle, in San Fernando, Andalusia, Spain. ‪#‎WAC2015Selfie”

Once you have posted your photo you will receive a private message with a discount code for registration to the XXIV World Allergy Congress (WAC 2015). You must register by 31 August 2015 in order for discount to qualify.

Photos will be displayed at the WAC 2015 Opening Ceremony.
