Mexican associations in the field of dermatology are bidding to host the 25th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) in 2023. The voting will take place during the General Assembly of the ILDS on June 12 as part of the 24th World Congress of Dermatology in Milan, Italy. The congress is the most important event of the international dermatology community and each edition gathers more than 10,000 specialists from all over the world.
The Mexican Bid Committee has chosen the city of Guadalajara for its ease of direct flights from major cities around the world, its state-of-the-art venue Expo Guadalajara and the city’s spectacular scenery as a colonial city.
The Bid Committee is representative of a national community of more than 2,000 dermatologists. Doctor Jorge Ocampo Candiani, former member of the ILDS Board and Past-President of the Ibero Latin American College of Dermatology (CILAD), is leading the project and ready to become the next host for the WCD 2023. The bid is fully endorsed by the Mexican Tourism Board, the Government of the State of Jalisco, the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Guadalaja, Expo Guadalajara and Bco Congresos.
