Official WSAVA/FECAVA 2020 Congress communication: the joint congress of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) and the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA) is postponed to 21-24 March 2021.

Same Congress. New Dates.

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Because of the COVID-9 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone WSAVA/FECAVA 2020 Congress.  Ensuring the safety of our thousands of delegates, speakers and exhibitors from around the world is our absolute priority so, as the health emergency is set to continue for some time, we feel we have no other choice.

The new dates of the Congress are 21 – 24 March 2021.

Your Congress registration is valid and will be transferred automatically to the new dates.

If you have questions or would like further information about your registration, you can contact us by submitting this form. Please select ‘Registration’ from the dropdown menu.

As the new dates fall immediately before the British Small Animal Veterinary Congress (BSAVA) 2021, we are grateful to our friends at BSAVA, who have worked with us to ensure that both of these outstanding veterinary congresses can run successfully.  We are also collaborating with them on ways to make it cheaper for delegates to attend both events, including offering a combined registration fee, which will be announced soon.

We have not taken this decision lightly but you know that WSAVA/FECAVA Congress will be worth the wait! We are still working to refine the state-of-the-art program, which will offer you the latest knowledge from global experts.

In the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe, and stay positive.

We look forward to meeting you again!

With kind regards,
The WSAVA/FECAVA Committee
