EERVC Conference 2022
08:00 - 20:00

EERVC is a new small animal veterinary conference designed to serve the continuing education needs of veterinarians in the wider Eastern European region. The conference will offer cutting-edge international speakers, the largest regional trade exhibition and unparalleled opportunities for professional networking during an affordable, high-quality, 3-day annual meeting that will rotate each year between different countries.

5th EERVC, which was scheduled to take place in Ljubljana on September 30 - October 3, 2021, due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the fact that international travel seems difficult or even impossible due to various restrictions for most participants (countries), and since we are expecting over 1,300 delegates from around the world and after a careful assessment of the situation, the EERVC Board decided to postpone the annual face-to-face conference for May 5-7, 2022 (Pre-Conference day – May 4, 2022). These dates will allow the EERVC to maintain the same scientific format, in the same city and convention centre.
