See you in Rio!


It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 61st AIJA Annual Congress.

AIJA comes back to Rio de Janeiro for the 2023 Congress, from 21-26 August.

Ranked by Forbes Magazine as ‘the Happiest City in the World’, Rio is known for its breathtaking natural landscapes, carnival, Maracanã, food, as well as the pride that comes with being a ‘carioca’ and, most recently, the title received by the statue of Christ the Redeemer as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World.

Rio is a truly unique location, combining the attributes of being one of the most famous international tourist destinations as well as serving as a focal point in the country and the region for several key economic markets.

The mix between city and nature provides its residents and visitors a smooth and pleasant ambience for both leisure and work. The welcoming environment and the touristic infrastructure of the city have led it to be chosen as the host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games in 2016.

We’ll have the privilege of hosting our Congress in one of the most iconic hotels in the world – The Copacabana Palace, stage of countless movies, stories and songs.

Across the street from our hotel is Copacabana Beach, the most famous beach in Brazil and natural habitat of poets, song writers, surfers, movies and TV celebrities. Participants will also enjoy a wide variety of social events and tours through (and potentially beyond) our beautiful city.

To make all this possible, we have gathered an exceptional group of members in our Organising Committee to welcome you in the warm, friendly and hospitable carioca style.

We are sure, with all we have prepared, that the AIJA Spirit will be the icing on the cake for an unforgettable 2023 Annual Congress in Rio!
