Record turnout for WSAVA World Congress 2018 in Singapore


More than 3,350 delegates attended the WSAVA World Congress 2018 held in Singapore from 25-28 September, making it the most popular World Congress ever. Veterinarians from over 66 countries participated, with strong attendances from the Asia-Pacific region, including the Philippines, India, Indonesia and Australia. Around 300 vets from India were present at the congress. The WSAVA says the record-breaking delegate numbers reflect the rapid growth of companion animal practice across Asia as levels of pet ownership soar. They also highlight the enthusiasm of veterinarians in Asia and around the world to learn from their peers and to participate in the WSAVA’s unique ‘global veterinary community’ of more than 200,000 companion animal practitioners. The WSAVA has also announced details of its 44th World Congress, which will be hosted by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association in Toronto from 16-19 July 2019.
