The World Poultry Congresses are held every fourth year and are major events of international poultry science. Usually combined with a trade exhibition, each congress is largely concerned with reviews of scientific information and the discussion of ideas. Social events and personal contacts have made recent congresses truly memorable occasions.

Recent venues have been:

  • 2004 - Istanbul, Turkey
  • 2008 – Brisbane, Australia
  • 2012 – Salvador, Brazil
  • 2016 - Beijing, China

The 26th WPC will be held in Paris, France.
