About World Poultry Congress 2020

Agriculture in general, and livestock in particular, are facing major challenges in the near future. The poultry sector has major assets to meet the expectation of the world population, provided that it can anticipate changes needed for sustainable production systems. WPC2020 aims to bring a major contribution to these challenges for the benefit of the world population.

The program will include an exhibition for companies within the Congress Centre and the scientific program will make it highly interactive and interdisciplinary.
