The International Massage Association has decided that the 2023 World Championship in Massage edition also will be held as a Hybrid edition as in 2021 and 2022.
What does Hybrid edition mean?
The Championship will be split into two simultaneous parts. One physically in Denmark and One online live.
- The physically part is like former years/Championships.
- The online part where the participants will be going live (on Zoom) with their massage treatments from a place of their own choice. There will be judges live watching and judging these treatments on same terms as the physical part. When participating online, there will only be one round. (The participant will only show his/her work in one category)
Medio May 2023, all registered participants will receive a mail with a link for them to choose whether to participate the online or the physical version. All participants can use this Participants logo.
