Welcome

Dear Members, Friends and Colleagues,

 

After a couple of years of social distancing, the European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and the European College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care are looking forward to seeing each other face to face again at the 19th annual European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Congress from 2-4 June 2022 in Ghent, Belgium.

 

We couldn’t think of a better place to reconnect with each other than in the city of Ghent, one of Europe’s best hidden secrets. It offer a combination of the history offered by Bruges and the vibrant livelihood of Antwerp.

 

Ghent has a population of barely 250,000, yet offers a home to people from over 150 different countries and therefore is a true melting pot in the center of Europe. Ghent has many squares with typical Belgian pubs, hundreds of restaurants offering the best food of any corner of the world, as well as plenty of museums, historical buildings and even boat trips whilst all of these remain within walking distance in the historic, compact city centre. So when planning to come to congress, consider spending some extra days within this lovely city, we are sure you won’t regret your stay!

 

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, the European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and the European College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, I would love to invite you to the 19th annual European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Congress in Ghent, Belgium. 

 

The congress will offer parallel streams for veterinarians oriented towards emergency and critical care (advanced), general practitioners seeking applicable information for their clinics (refresher) and a stream focused on veterinary nurses. Delegates can freely move from stream to stream, in order to take the most out of the event. Moreover, during the congress several wet- and dry labs will be organized on different topics such as resuscitation or point of care ultrasound. This should allow each delegate to return home feeling energized and enlightened with up to date knowledge and practical training in veterinary emergency and critical care.

 

The Local Organizing Committee, EVECCS and ECVECC look forward to welcoming you in Ghent for EVECC 2022! 

 

Kind regards,
