Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Mexican Academy of Dermatology, the Mexican Society of Dermatology, the Mexican Society of Cosmetic Dermatologic & Laser and the Mexican Society of Dermatologic Surgery & Oncology, we are proud to present Guadalajara as candidate city to host WCD 2027.

Guadalajara is a city of contrasts, a metropolis that mixes the best of modernity with ancient traditions. With its competitive infrastructure, passionate doctors and an influential medical community, we will continue to reinforce the spirit of “dermatology” in all of Latin America and the world. With an amazing group of talented dermatologists, young women and men; inclusion, diversity & appeal will be part of the scientific program.

Over the years, the “City of Roses” has distinguished itself as an ideal place to successfully carry out conferences, due to its vast experience in hosting events, and its state-of-the-art air and highway infrastructure. Culturally, Guadalajara stands amongst giants, contrasting modernity and tradition, with a dash of magic! This is best reflected in our traditional towns such as Tlaquepaque, Tequila, Tonalá, and, Chapala which nestle amongst the city’s more modern elements such as our extraordinary convention center, Expo Guadalajara, which is surrounded by hotels, that will accommodate all budgets and tastes.

It would be remiss of me to not mention some of our most iconic offerings: Mariachi, Tequila, Charros and Raicilla, as well as our bountiful local gastronomy and world-class restaurants. No trip to Guadalajara would truly be complete without an extensive sampling of its cuisine. Food is a pillar of the society here and features in every aspect of life.

We believe hosting the World Congress of Dermatology in 2027 will leave a legacy in our field.

For those of us who represent the ILDS community in Mexico, it will be a great honor to welcome you to our country. Our bid committee, a joint effort of all four Mexican member societies, is representative of the whole country and we all share two passions: our strong commitment to the specialty of dermatology and our great enthusiasm to deliver a WCD that surpasses expectations.

We look forward to welcoming you in Guadalajara!
