Dear friends, members and colleagues,

On behalf of the Hellenic Veterinary Medical Society (HVMS), it is our great honor to extend a warm welcome to all of you attending the 29th FECAVA EuroCongress, which will be hosted alongside the 12th Hellenic Veterinary Congress for Companion Animals in Athens, in September 2024. This year is particularly significant for us as we celebrate the 100-year anniversary since the establishment of our society. The dream of organizing the FECAVA Eurocongress to mark this important milestone has finally come true.

The scientific program of the EuroCongress has a rich variety of topics, encompassing the latest advancements, emerging trends, and best practices in companion animal veterinary medicine. Experts from various disciplines will deliver insightful lectures and interactive workshops. Furthermore, this congress will also serve as a unique opportunity for veterinarians from all over Europe to gather, exchange ideas and establish lasting professional relationships.

The members of the organizing and scientific committees have worked hard in planning and preparing this anticipated event and will continue their endeavors over the months to come. Their dedication ensures that this EuroCongress will be an enriching and memorable experience for all participants. We hope that all the above will be reflected in the fulfillment that each of you may feel after attending this congress.

Athens, with its rich history and vibrant culture, provides the perfect backdrop for this scientific gathering. We encourage you to take some time to explore the city and immerse yourself in its beauty and charm.

We are excited to welcome you in the spectacular city of Athens in September 2024 and embark on a journey of knowledge, collaboration, and inspiration, along with the opportunity to enjoy an impressive historical and cultural environment.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Maria Linou

President, Hellenic Veterinary Medical Society
