The 23rd World Congress of Dermatology in 2015 will take place in Vancouver, Canada from June 8-13, 2015. The World Congress of Dermatology is the world’s oldest and continuous international dermatology meeting. The first Congress in 1889 pre-dated the modern Olympics by seven years. The last Congress to be held in North America was in New York in 1992.
One of the highlights of the 23rd World Congress of Dermatology, along with the Scientific Program, is the Exhibition, which will take place in the Exhibit Hall at the Vancouver Convention Centre - a hall over 20,000 square metres! Open to all registered participants, the Exhibition will offer unparalleled opportunities to present your latest products and services and make face-to-face contacts with leading dermatologists and key decision makers from around the world.
