Welcome to the web page of 3rd International Poultry Meat Congress.

First two of the International Poultry Meat Congress which is traditionally organised by Turkish Poultry Meat Producers and Breeders Association (BESD-BİR) in each two years has realized in 2011 and 2013 spring in Antalya with increased participation and success. The quality of the second congress has successfully reached to the international standards with it’s high quality content including 65 oral presentation in 22 scientific session distributed into 3 different meeting room and 65 poster presentations. We have hosted total 1400 participants including family members and, approximately 900 active national and international participants in the second congress which has significant mission for our industry to extend and share the science and technology, and also strong integration to the world.

Turkish poultry meat industry grew up around 75% in a very short period, from 1.1 million tons poultry meat in 2007 to 1.9 million tons in year 2013. This huge growth made an incredible increase in our export by 665% , from 52 thousand tons to about 400 thousand tons for that short period. So it is clear that Turkish Poultry Meat Industry makes valuable contribution to supply healthy, enough and stable foods for humans not just live in Turkey, but also live in other foreign countries.

The dynamic power and most important capital behind the poultry industry are the science and technology. The main difference which isolates the poultry industry from backyard poultry farming is using research base science and technology over 100 years. As all we know very well modern or conventional poultry meat production is raising broiler or turkey chickens obtained entirely conventional (natural) breeding methods in controlled conditions which supply the most suitable environment that broiler needs and feeding them by considering science based knowledge to meet all nutrient requirements.

As a representative of Turkish Poultry Industry which has become the world's 8th largest poultry producers, we together with organising and scientific committees have started to accomplish a higher quality congress as worthy of our country in April 2015. Many distinguished scientists as a keynote speaker will join us and talk on poultry meat production from farm to fork including all disciplines. The main theme of the 3rd congress will cover new devolopments, challanges, strategies for future considerations, safe poultry meat , sustainability besides importance of poultry meat for human nutrition and supplying enough and healthy meat for consumers.

We will be very happy to host all relevant people from all around the world in our traditional congress which reflects the science and technology side of Turkish Poultry Meat Industry. Additionally, we are pleased to announce that national and international scientists and researchers who join us to share their experiments, ideas and comments have been supported and encouraged. The location of the symposium, Antalya is one of Turkey's most popular holiday destinations. It’s historical sites, exceptional beaches, restaurants and entertainment facilities would always make your stay enjoyable.

We really look forward to welcoming you to 3rd International poultry Meat Congress which will be held in beautiful Antalya from 22 April to 26 April 2015 to obtain more and more benefits for humanity with science and industry hand in hand by discussing the innovations and changes of poultry meat production in most comprehensive way with participation of leading scientists and experts.
