Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the bureau of the French branch of the World Veterinary Poultry Association (WVPA), I feel both pleased and honoured to invite you to attend the XVIIIth congress of WVPA in Nantes, France, in 2013.

During the past 50 years, our country has been associated significantly with the worldwide development of rational poultry production, in the fields of poultry genetics and health as well as quality insurance, poultry welfare and food safety of poultry products. These achievements have been made possible thanks to the professional involvement of many poultry specialists. The French branch of the WVPA is honoured to count more than ninety members, who are eager to share their experience and knowledge. The next international WVPA congress offers an unique opportunity to achieve this goal. The last WVPA congress to be held in France was organized in 1965 in Paris. Let us meet again in one of the most modern French conference centers, in Nantes, in August 2013 !

With the partnership of ISPAIA - Zoopole Development, an experienced French Congress Organizer, the French branch of WVPA is committed to make every possible effort to organize a scientifically stimulating and socially attractive XVIIIth congress of WVPA. We look forward to meeting you there, together with many poultry veterinarians from your national WVPA branch.

With best regards,

Nicolas Eterradossi,

Corresponding Secretary of the French branch of WVPA
