IPVS 2014: Pig Veterinary Meeting Heads for Cancun

10 June 2013

MEXICO - The organising committee of the 23th International Pig Veterinary Society Congress 2014 (IPVS 2014) is inviting participation at the meeting, which will be held on 8 to 11 June 2014 in Cancun.

Cancun is a tropical paradise that encompasses top class hotels and resorts, golf courses and many cultural attractions, as well as an international airport with direct flights from Europe, North and South America at very accessible rates, say the organisers. Both a state of the art congress venue that offers all the necessary infrastructure for a meeting of this relevance and an experienced team of experts to support the organisation of IPVS 2014 have been selected in order to accomplish the objective of a successful scientific event in a relaxing and friendly environment.

In order to maintain the high scientific standard of IPVS, the organising committee has already started to integrate a premium panel of international and national swine experts into its scientific committee. Thus, allowing participants to acquire new and relevant information related to swine health, reproduction, nutrition, management, environment, welfare and other fields of interest.

Finally, the social programme will strengthen networking among fellow colleagues in an atmosphere of tradition and cultural activities. This wonderful setting is surrounded of mangroves, reefs, tropical rainforest, cenotes, white sand beaches and colossal pyramids such as Chichen Itza, one of the Modern Seven Wonders of the World. Consequently, the organisers say it will be an honour and pleasure for them and the entire Mexican contingent to share their traditional hospitality in this breathtaking location, the Mexican Caribbean and the Mayan Kingdom.
