The highest priority of the French Branch of WPSA and the organizing committee of the 26th World’s Poultry Congress 2020 (WPC2020) is the health and well-being of congress participants. Therefore, after consulting the members of the WPSA board, as well as the sponsors, and getting their agreement, the Organizing Committee decided to postpone the WPC to August 8th to 12th, 2021 in Paris. We are grateful to the entire WPSA community for supporting us in this difficult decision.
The registrations recorded until now remain valid for the new dates, August 8th to 12th, 2021. We will extend the deadline for regular registration fee until December 31st, 2020, and give to the authors of accepted abstracts the possibility to amend them.
In case of difficulties to attend in 2021, please contact us at .
We encourage you to follow our regular updates on the www.wpc2020.com. We will also send information via emails and newsletters to registered participants and WPSA members, and through social media.
We count on you for a successful World’s Poultry Congress at Palais des Congrès de Paris, August 8th to 12th, 2021, which also will give the opportunity to celebrate the 100 years of the WPC since its first edition in 1921!
