The Executive Organizing Committee of the World Association for Veterinary Dermatology (WAVD) cordially invites you to join dermatologists, dermatopathologists, researchers, clinicians and technicians from around the world to beautiful Vancouver, Canada for the 7th World Congress in Veterinary Dermatology (WCVD7) to be held from July 24 to July 28, 2012. This is the second World Congress to be held in the nation of Canada as WCVD2 was hosted by Montreal in 1992.
The World Congress in Veterinary Dermatology was initiated by the constituent organizations representing the American, Canadian and European specialists in veterinary dermatology. More recently, specialty veterinary dermatology organizations from Asia and Australasia have joined the WAVD and are now an integral part of the Congress organisation making this a truly international event. The WCVD6 held in Hong Kong 2008 was a highly successful meeting with record attendance and a testimony to the genuinely global nature of veterinary dermatology. In 2012, the Congress returns to North America in picturesque Vancouver, Canada and we anticipate a meeting that will excel in scientific and social content with something to offer every participant.
Vancouver is a vibrant, international city offering the visitor outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventure with the sophisticated amenities of a world class location. The port city is famous for a temperate climate and the natural scenic beauty of the snow capped mountains provides the perfect backdrop for the seventh World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology.
During the day you will be challenged by a scientific program that will deliver the newest advances in veterinary dermatology including clinical and scientific research. The advanced and comprehensive continuing education programme and workshops will highlight current trends in clinical dermatology practice from around the world.
In the balmy summer evenings we have an exciting social program that will deliver superbly fresh food, world class music and entertainment and a night-life of excitement with opportunities to socialize with old friends and to make new ones. The Congress will be held in the award-winning Vancouver Convention Center (VCC), The aesthetics and amenities of the VCC will make for an unsurpassed conference experience for the WAVD delegate.
Take some time after the Congress to enjoy the sheer glory of this tranquil location, from hiking to kayaking, rock climbing to fishing in the breathtaking mountain scenery, the surrounding area of Vancouver is an absolute delight. Whether your interests include a tour of the local vineyards, exploring local parks, trekking through rainforest trails, discovering the mysterious secrets of Granville island or a whale watching excursion, Vancouver certainly has something to offer for everyone. WCVD7 will provide you with a once in a life time experience.
The Organizing Committee, sponsors and all of the constituent organization of the WAVD strongly encourage you to attend WCVD7. For all of the latest information with regard to the Congress please visit www.vetdermvancouver.com  .
