 Letter of introduction to the WVPA Congress 2015

Dr. Hannes Swart

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee of the World Veterinary Poultry Association 2015 Congress, I invite you to become our partner in hosting the 19th World Veterinary Poultry Congress in Cape Town from 7-11 September 2015.The success of this prestigious event depends on supporters and/or exhibitors like yourselves.

Business decisions are made to ensure return on investments. By partnering with us, you will reach both the poultry health scientific community and more importantly Poultry Veterinarians who decide which products to use in the worldwide poultry production arena. As a supporter of this event, your company’s name will be promoted in various ways and you will enjoy the opportunity to showcase your products and lift the veil on forthcoming attractions for new products in this industry.

This is the first time this event will be hosted in the southern part of the African continent. Africa is seen as the food basket of the future, therefore this is an excellent opportunity to explore possibilities in Africa.

South Africa, Cape Town and the CTICC are all excellent choices as the host country, host city as well as the congress venue. I am looking forward to a partnership with mutual benefit.

Dr Hannes Swart

Chairman LOC of the WVPA 2015 Congress

Dear Colleague,

September 2015 will see the WVPA’s global congress come to Cape Town in South Africa – the first time we have held a congress south of the Sahara in Africa. Having been to see the congress venue and discuss the event with the Local Organising Committee, WVPA is confident that the Cape Town Congress will continue our tradition of successful congresses which the French did so admirably in 2013 in Nantes.

WVPA Congresses bring together a unique gathering of poultry health professionals, including a strong representation of poultry veterinarians from academia, research, practice and major companies who service the poultry sector. At the last congress in France in 2013 over 1,200 delegates attended from some 70-80 countries.  This congress will provide each and every delegate with a great educational and networking opportunity as well as the chance to meet with the world’s leading suppliers of poultry veterinary products.

Today’s poultry veterinarians are much more than just ‘chicken doctors’! They are being increasingly seen and used as sources of trusted independent professional and technical advice in areas such as health, biosecurity, vaccination, nutrition, incubation, bird management and welfare, zoonotic pathogen control and end product quality and the scientific programme will keep you in touch with the latest developments in the many fields that constitute avian health management.

Cape Town is a great venue! It is a safe as any western city! For accommodation and dining it has something suitable for all budgets! There are some fantastic places to visit pre- and post- congress (you can not visit this city and not visit the Cape of Good Hope and some of the numerous wine estates!) and we will guarantee that our South African hosts will make each and every one who attends their congress really feel at home and have a week to remember!

We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town for what promises to be a memorable congress and experience!

Yours sincerely,

Prof Hafez M Hafez – Vice President

Nigel Horrox – Vice President

Francois Xavier Le Gros – Secretary Treasurer
