The FIVB World Congress is the Federation's supreme governing body and is held every two years. The 2016 edition will be the 35th time the Congress convenes. This year’s edition, which will be an electoral congress with current FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graça F° standing unopposed, will be held in the Argentinean capital of Buenos Aires, from October 4 to 6, 2016. It is not the first key FIVB event the Argentina Volleyball Federation has hosted. Back in 2002, it hosted the World Congress as well as the FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championships in the same year.
