"Now approaching his eighteenth birthday, Dumbledore left Hogwarts in a blaze of glory — Head Boy, Prefect, Winner of the Barnabus Finkley Prize for Exceptional Spell-Casting, British Youth Representative to the Wizengamot, Gold Medal-Winner for Ground-Breaking Contribution to the International Alchemical Conference in Cairo."
Rita Skeeter, The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore.[src]

The International Alchemical Conference was a formal event that took place in the 1890s, in Cairo, Egypt, where experts in the field of Alchemy presented and discussed their work.


Albus Dumbledore, while still in the course of his student years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, took part in this symposium, where he was the Gold Medal-Winner for Ground-Breaking Contribution.[1]
