Global veterinary event comes to Birmingham




The annual World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has chosen the ICC, Birmingham as the location for its 2012 conference. The choice of venue and destination was influenced by the fact that the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) holds its annual conference at the ICC on a regular basis, and in 2012 both events will be co-located there.
 
Established to encourage and promote excellence in small animal veterinary practice, the WSAVA has 76 member and affiliate organisations representing some 70,000 individual veterinarians from around the world.

BSAVA president Ed Hall was full of praise for the ICC and was clearly looking forward to the 2012 event when he commented: "The ICC in Birmingham remains the best conference venue I have ever attended, not just in terms of its facilities and professionalism, but also in the warmness of the welcome.”

Animal magnetism: The ICC attracts top veterinary event

Meanwhile, ICC director of sales Catherine Newhall-Caiger was understandably delighted with the news. “The WSAVA is yet another world-class international meeting that will be hosted here at the ICC,” she said. “This event was last held here in 1997 and I am exceptionally pleased to be able to welcome them back to the ICC.
 
“The BSAVA was the very first association to hold an event here at the ICC when the venue opened in 1991, and it has returned to us every year since,” she continued. “We have developed an excellent relationship with the organisers and I know that the whole team here are looking forward to this prestigious event.”
 
Previous WSAVA World Congresses have been held in Dublin, Amsterdam, Prague, Mexico City and Bangkok.
