About the World Allergy Congresses (WAC)
The World Allergy Organization (WAO) organized the first World Allergy Congress (WAC) in 1951 in Zurich, Switzerland, and is now being held every two years. Each conference attracts between 2,000 and 5,000 experts and scientists working and interested in the fields of allergy, immunology and other related pathologies. In most cases, WAO partners with a regional or national Member Society to host the Congress. In 2019, WAO will collaborate with the “Société Française d’Allergologie”.
