Update Covid-19

Dear all

 

First of all we hope to find you all safe and healthy, together with your families and loved ones. 

 

Unfortunately, due the current situation caused by COVID-19 and the uncertain future , the international organizing committee decided to cancel the  congress for 2020 and postpone it for 2021 in the same location in Ghent. We did hear that many events, even some that are planned later this year, are  cancelled just now mainly to protect attendees and to prevent the spreading of the virus.

 

The Flemish local organizing committee already did a lot of work for the Congress 1- 2- 3 October 2020 in Ghent. So the international and the local organizing committee made the decision to postpone the congress for one year. As you can imagine, this is not an easy decision, but we’re sure that’s the best for everybody safety.

Because the EVCBMAW is postponed to 2021, abstract submission has been cancelled for now. We will send another call for abstracts in due time.

 

As soon as possible we will send you updated information about the final date for 2021..

You can visit the website www.evcbmaw.org for more information.

 

So, I speak for all organizing committees, we really want to see you all in Ghent.

 

Take care!

 

Christine Halsberghe

President of the local organizing committee.

Food Procurement Policy

EVCBMAW Food Procurement Policy

The EVCBMAW recognises the importance of markets, concerned consumers and socially responsible retailers and caterers in creating demand and financial viability for higher standards of animal welfare in food production. The EVCBMAW also recognises good animal welfare as an essential element and objective of sustainable development.
