Dear Esteemed Colleagues and the Dermatological Community,

On behalf of the Mexican Academy of Dermatology, the Mexican Society of Dermatology, the Mexican Society of Dermatologic Surgery & Oncology, the Mexican Society of Dermatological Cosmetic and Laser, together with all the countries of Latin America, we are proud to announce that the 26th World Congress of Dermatology will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, from the 21st to the 26th of June, 2027.

Guadalajara is a city of diversity; a perfect blend of modernity and ancient traditions. It is one of the most dynamic cultural capitals, rich in history and alive with excitement and friendliness. This metropolis, with its competitive infrastructure, boasts a leading dermatology university, and an influential and passionate medical community that can amplify the voice of Latin American dermatology research to the world. Expo Guadalajara, the largest convention center in Mexico and one the largest in Latin America, is the ideal venue to host a great Congress and it will comfortably accommodate the WCD participants, Sponsors, and Exhibitors.

The theme of the WCD2027 is “Discover the Dermatology Ecosystem. For a Diverse and Inclusive Future”. Discovering the Dermatology Ecosystem concept highlights that dermatology is not a solitary discipline but rather an intricate network of interconnected disciplines. It fosters a holistic perspective on dermatology, encouraging exploration and active participation within this multifaceted landscape. For a Diverse and Inclusive Future emphasizes the future we strive for, where diversity is a value and inclusion is a need, just like in an ecosystem. The encompassing message also underscores the role of collaboration and innovation in propelling dermatology forward by encouraging development and discernment and ensuring that advancements reach every individual.

This is the promise of WCD2027 throughout the 4 year journey to Guadalajara.

Be embraced by and experience Guadalajara’s magic through WCD2027!

Jorge Ocampo Candiani
President of WCD2027

Mariel Isa
Secretary General of WCD2027
