Welcome from Local Organising Committee

Dear IPVS and ESPHM Delegate,

The forthcoming 24th International Pig Veterinary Society Congress in Dublin from June 7th to June 10th 2016 is a unique event since it represents a departure from the usual IPVS format. We have joined forces with the 8th European Symposium of Porcine Health Management to consolidate the pig veterinary conferences in Europe in 2016 and to create a special event in a special city.

Dublin, in the early summertime has been afforded the opportunity to welcome friends, sponsors and delegates to what we hope will be the best IPVS ever.

By combining the IPVS with the ESPHM we hope to build attendance to in excess of 3,000 delegates. Our congress venue is the historic Royal Dublin Society (RDS), founded in 1731 to promote agricultural endeavours and working in this pursuit ever since. This is a unique venue that will allow you, our sponsors, to interact freely with the delegates in a warm and friendly environment.

Dublin is a fabulous city to visit. Our congress centre is on the south-side of the city centre with major bus and rail links to the centre. Dublin is a very welcoming city with a friendly face at every interaction.

We are a maximum of two flights away from most international locations and Dublin Airport is a short hop away from the venue and the congress hotels. Accommodation banks have been booked in neighbouring hotels and we hope that all delegates and sponsors attending will extend their visits to the days before (a bank holiday weekend) or after (a party weekend) the congress to allow us to share our beautiful and blossoming country with you.

There will be a Céad Mile Fáilte (100,000 welcomes) to all our guests and we hope to instil a longing among all attendees to return to Ireland real soon.
