GLOBAL - Registration and paper submissions are now open for the World's Poultry Congress (WPC) 2012. The organisers say this will be the most important event of the poultry sector next year, and it will be held in Salvador in Brazil from 5 to 9 August 2012.


The XXIV World Poultry Congress (WPC 2012) registration is now open to delegates, students and visitors who wish to take a close view of the world's most important poultry event. Interested participants can register and obtain more information on the congress official web site – www.wpc2012.com – and guarantee their presence in the event to be held from 5 to 9 August 2012 at Salvador Convention Center (Salvador/Bahia).

WPC 2012 will celebrate 100 years since the foundation of the World's Poultry Science Association (WPSA). The event will comprise the WPC Expo – a large-scale exhibition of products and services of the poultry industry of all continents, in a space with more than 24,000 square metres; and the World Poultry Congress, with expectation to gather 9,000 people. The scientific programme has been specially developed for the event and will include presentations made by the leading technical and scientific names of the world's poultry sector. It will be four days of discussions and symposia with an all-inclusive program related to egg, broiler chicks and chickens production.

For exposition visitors, registration gives entry to four days in WPC Expo. The delegate registration guarantees free access to the congress fair and lectures. Costs, necessary documents and other information to register are available on the event web site.

Dr Edir Nepomuceno da Silva, president of WPC 2012 and FACTA (APINCO Poultry's Science and Technology Foundation), WPSA's Brazilian branch, commented: "That's an unique opportunity, Brazil will become the most complete display for poultry in the world, gathering the innovations in technology, service, products and specially technical studies that are able to revolutionise poultry production."
