On Behalf of the WPSA Lebanese Branch I would like to welcome you to the 4th Mediterranean Poultry Summit (MPS). This conference will be held September 2-5, 2014, on the campus of the American University of Beirut (AUB), the oldest private university in the Near East region. AUB was established in 1866 and is located on the most beautiful coastal area at the tip of the city of Beirut. The campus covers 65 acres of gardens, 19th century buildings and wooded areas. It has a rich collection of flowers, shrubs and trees which make it the most beautiful campus in the region. Surrounding the campus is a wide range of hotels and shopping districts, all within a walking distance of the conference center. Lebanon is rich with historical sites and blessed with natural beauty and fair weather all year round. Early September is ideal for enjoying the many beaches and cool mountain areas.
