The organising committee has great pleasure in extending a warm invitation to everyone with interests in the poultry and allied industries to attend the 23rd World’s Poultry Congress which will be held in Queensland, Australia from 29 June - 4 July 2008.

June/July are wonderful months to visit sub-tropical Brisbane. It will be mild and is normally bright and sunny, with day time temperatures ranging from 12- 24°C. Located in the heart of Brisbane, the venue for this major international event is the modern and beautifully appointed Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

We are very pleased to announce that the 6th Asian-Pacific Poultry Health Conference (AP6), the 4th International Ratite Science Symposium (4IRSS) and the 2008 Australian Poultry Information Exchange (PIX2008), will run concurrently with the Congress. The Congress program has been closely integrated with these affiliations, with AP6 primarily covering the Bird Health and Disease stream. There will also be two satellite meetings taking place in conjunction with WPC2008: The Avian Immunology Research Group 2008 (AIRG 2008) Conference to be held from 24 to 27 June at the Gold Coast and the 8th International Marek’s Disease Symposium.

The scientific and technical program will be topical and relevant to the needs of the poultry industries in 2008. Speakers with expertise in identified areas of interest and importance to industry, science and technology will be invited to share their knowledge with delegates in both plenary and symposia sessions. Contributed papers will be critical to the success of the meeting and the organising committee is keen to receive submissions across a wide spectrum of activity relevant to the future development of poultry science and the poultry industries.

The Congress will include an extensive trade exhibition, which will be the largest ever staged in Australia. It will provide an ideal opportunity to network with colleagues and industry associates.
