The Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) will host the 28th International Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology in 2021. The conference is expected to attract 1,000 international participants and generate around €1.6 million for the local Irish economy.
The CCD worked closely with conference ambassador Professor Grace Mulcahy to initiate the bid for Dublin. Mulcahy is Professor of Veterinary Microbiology and Parasitology at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University College Dublin.
“This biennial Conference brings together the largest number of veterinary parasitologists globally, and has a strong tradition in showcasing both basic research and innovation in the discipline”, Mulcahy says.
