Paris Hosts 26Th Edition Of World Poultry Congress -

The “Poultry Congress of the World” or the World Poultry Congress will provide an opportunity for attendees to exchange views on poultry science, showcase the distinctive features of the poultry industry, showcase their potential and strengthen their appeal to young students . It features an engaging social program based on French historical and gastronomic culture to foster friendly relations between attendees, which complements one of the main features of the WPSA.

Organized by the French branch of the WPSA, it expects more than 1,000 congressmen from around the world in its five days.
