CONGRESS

Themed “We Are All in The Same Boat”, RoVECCS organizes the first online congress so you will no longer miss the precious information which our speakers prepared for you, considering that we still cannot meet and enjoy each others company at a live event. The online congress will take place on the VIN platform in the United States. It is not necessary to be a VIN member in order to access the congress presenatations. Moreover, VIN will gladly offer 2 free-acces months for the RoVECCS congress participants, so you can enjoy numerous presentations held by specialists all over the world, as well as many more features from the wide international veterinary community.

The first online congress will be structured in 3 conference days, with presentations held by 3 international speakers and 4 national speakers. We are expecting over 250 participants from all over Europe, veterinarians as well as students having the chance to be part of an exceptional event at amazing prices. The presentations will be held only in English, due to the fact that the presentations will be hosted on a platform in the USA.
