More than two thousand five hundred delegates from 48 countries attended the seventh annual Southern European Veterinary Congress (SEVC), which took place in the centre of Barcelona, from 17-19 October 2013.
The event, one of the key companion animal veterinary events in Europe, featured both an extensive scientific programme and an exhibition supported by over 90 leading animal health companies.
The scientific programme involved over 180 teaching hours by more than 60 international speakers. Highlights included presentations from Bill Schroeder on the use of social media in practiced Marty Becker on the fear-free visit to practices, as well as Stanley Marks and Mike Day on internal medicine, Patrick Kircher on Diagnostic Imaging, Sue Murphy on Feline Lymphoma and Gilles Dupre on the use of Laparoscopy for the practitioner.
In addition the Workshops sponsored by KRUUSE organised by FECAVA President Elect Dr. Jerzy Gawor on cytology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, orthopaedics, behaviour, ophthalmology and wound care were all fully booked and allowing delegates to have half day hands-on experience with world class clinicians on these topics.
Artur Font , President of the SEVC Congress, commented: “This year’s event was very special. Attracting delegates from 48 countries was a great achievement and was a reflection both of the unique scientific programme and our new venue which is ideally located in Barcelona and ideal for international delegates.
Based on the success of the 2013 event, we’re now preparing the programme for 2014 which will include internationally recognised speakers such as Richard Ford on internal medicine, Willfried Mai on diagnostic imaging, Rick LeCouteur on neurology, Carin Smith on practice management, and Kirstin Muller on the internal medicine of rabbits.
