Press Release


December, 2020

Dear Colleagues,


after a long discussion within the Local Organizing Committee and an accurate evaluation of the current epidemiological worldwide scenario due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we decided with regret to postpone the next WVPA Congress in Verona, Italy.

We made this difficult choice in full accordance with the WVPA Executive Board.

The XXIInd Congress of the World Veterinary Poultry Association has been postponed from 2021 to 2023 and we are happy to announce that it will take place from 4th to 8th of September 2023.

The postponement will ensure a successful congress in line with WVPA expectations in terms of wide participation of attendees from all over the world, high quality in the organization, large number of scientific speeches, sponsor visibility and networking.

The postponement will also give the possibility to be back to the consolidated social events scheduled in the program, that are so important to take contacts and share experiences.


Hoping to meet you all in Verona in 2023, I cordially greet you,


Prof. Mattia Cecchinato, Chair
