Welcome Letter

When saying “Poland” imagine: generous hospitality, tasty cuisine, a country full of beautiful nature, music inspired by folklore and unique places for entertainment and sightseeing.

Dear Colleagues,

A joint congress of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) and the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA), hosted by the Polish Small Animal Veterinary Association will take place in Warsaw. We are excited to be hosting the most important small animal medicine event in Central Europe.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its global implications, we have come to the decision to postpone the WSAVA/FECAVA 2020 Congress as we are expecting thousands of delegates from around the world and the health and safety of participants is our main priority.

The new dates of the WSAVA/FECAVA 2020 Congress: 21 – 24 March 2021.

In the last 30 years, the veterinary profession has struggled with the challenges arising from a changing market. Our evolution into a modern, growing veterinary market, has been successful and is ongoing. We are extremely proud to share our local experiences that will be reflected in the congress program.

The preliminary program includes topics such as market transformation, standards in general practice, educational considerations such as current tendencies & needs, and proposals for specialization and CPD in the region, in small animal veterinary medicine.

When saying “Poland” imagine: generous hospitality, tasty cuisine, a country full of beautiful nature, music inspired by folklore and unique places for entertainment and sightseeing. This will all be reflected in our social program, with numerous events presenting the flavor of Poland and the Polish people.

On behalf of the Polish veterinary community, as well as FECAVA and WSAVA, I would like to invite you all to Warsaw in March 2021.

Save the date in your diary – you simply cannot miss this event!

Sincerely,

Jerzy Gawor

Chair of the Local Organizing Committee

WSAVA/FECAVA 2020
