European Veterinary Conference EVC 2011 - Amsterdam, The NetherlandsHistory
Every spring the Voorjaarsdagen Conference is held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. (In Dutch, Voorjaarsdagen means "Spring Days".) Our conference has become an internationally acclaimed conference in companion animal medicine and surgery.

Since 1967, the Netherlands Association for Companion Animal Medicine (NACAM) has organised an annual conference for its members, non-members and veterinarians from abroad. With the passage of time, the conference has grown in popularity and size: the original one-day programme has been extended to three full days. The number of lectures has increased to eight simultaneous sessions. Nowadays more than 1000 veterinarians attend this conference annually.

Equine programme
From 2001 onwards, Voorjaarsdagen also hosts an equine programme. After very successful lustrum celebrations, the NEVA president, lustrum organising committee and the Voorjaarsdagen president agreed to incorporate an equine programme during Voorjaarsdagen Conference. The two simultaneous session have ever since brought the best CPD to Amsterdam. Close collaborations with NEVA, BEVA and the AAEP has made it possible to improve the programme so that it has become the equine spring meeting of the year!

Important aims of the Voorjaarsdagen Conference are to build friendship between veterinarians at a national and international level, to enhance the quality and availability of veterinary medicine and surgery, and to foster the exchange of scientific information among veterinarians. The presence of our strong scientific backbone, the Department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals ans the Department of Equine Sciences at Utrecht University with its world-renowned scientists, gives us extreme confidence to present the best there is in the field of companion animal medicine and surgery.

We are delighted to present you our appealing programme for 2011!
The theme for 2011 is "Sustainability in Veterinary Practice".
We hope that a careful examinination of the preliminary programme will encourage you to include the Voorjaarsdagen conference in your (undoubtedly busy) diary!

Over the past 44 years, Voorjaarsdagen has become a prestigious conference drawing international speakers of the highest calibre. As veterinarians, we are responsible for animal well-being and form an important link in society. In order to be heard, we must speak with a unified voice, and this can only be achieved if we meet regularly at conferences, like Voorjaarsdagen, to learn, to improve ourselves and to discuss all aspects relating to the profession, with our colleagues.

The Companion Animal Conference, the Equine Conference and the Technicians' Programme will all run in a series of parallel sessions. The exhibition floor, renowned for its variety of presentations and the excellent warm lunches, will be more exciting than ever, as more and more sponsors have been found willing to promote their businesses, to you. As a special feature, this year, there will be an exciting Voorjaarsdagen party, open to all conference visitors.

An important note to the 44th edition of Voorjaarsdagen is that the 2011 conference will be held on Wednesday 27, Thursday 28 and Friday 29 April, with a preconference day on Tuesday 26.
As a result, you will have the opportunity to experience Queen's Night in Amsterdam, immediately following the conference, on Saturday 30 April.

Attendance at Voorjaarsdagen will be both enjoyable and educational, and will help you in the day-to-day work of our marvellous profession. Make sure you are part of it, and join us ...

See you in Amsterdam!
