Cheongju in South Korea has been announced as the host of the 2018 World Shooting Para Sport Championships.
The flagship event will be held between May 1 and 12 at the Cheongju Shooting Ranges.
It will be the first event where athletes can secure quota places for their countries for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Around 300 shooters from 60 countries are expected to compete, with the Korean Shooting Federation for the Disabled (KSFD) acting as organisers.
"We are delighted to be bringing one of our marquee events to the Asian region with just over two years until Tokyo 2020," said Tyler Anderson, World Shooting Para Sport's manager.
"It is also the second time the World Championships have taken place in South Korea, a country which has produced some of world's best shooters over the years.
"Providing the perfect conditions for such a high level event is therefore in their DNA.
"I am confident that the local Organising Committee will do everything they can to make this a great event, offering athletes an ideal platform to go for those all-important gold medals."
The 2002 World Championships were held in South Korean capital Seoul, and attracted 211 athletes from 36 countries.
Held every four years, the last World Championships took place in Suhl in Germany in 2014.
Nearly 250 athletes from 50 countries competed there, with South Korea topping the medal table with 10 gold, three silver and four bronze medals.
The next major Para-shooting competition is the World Shooting Para Sport Grand Prix in Szczecin in Poland.
Featuring rifle and pistol air events, the competition will run between April 26 and 29.
