Asian Pig Veterinary Society (APVS) 2015

On behalf of the Asian Pig Veterinary Society (APVS), I'm delighted to announce that the 7th Asian Pig Veterinary Society Congress will be held in Manila, Philippines, on October 25th-27th 2015!

To be really honest, there's no reason why you should miss this important gathering of minds to unlock the latest research and insights to develop new, innovative ideas and strengthen the course of the Asian veterinarians.

I invite you to discover the beauty of Manila. Located on Manila Bay in the South China Sea, and bisected by the Pasig River, the capital of the Philippines is historic and modern. A popular sight is the walled area called Intramuros. The capital during Spanish colonization,Intramuros has retained old dungeons and gunpowder rooms but added art galleries and theaters. The city is filled with museums, shops, parks and churches, plus enough nightlife to last until dawn. Manila has an enviable reputation for cultural richness, as well as excellent accommodation that is conveniently located to the conference venue, and convenient transportation links to nearby cities across the Metro. No wonder Manila is the number 1 destination for congresses in the Philippines and we have picked out Hotel Sofitel, where you will experience, in the tradition of Filipino hospitality, a new glance on what we are as people. It is also strategically located near the the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, your gateway to popular spots like Boracay, Cebu, Davao, and the rest of the country's7,100 plus islands.

The Congress theme, Asian Pork Challenge "Moving As One", will showcase the tremendous opportunites that lie before us as we seek to translate recent studies in swine health towards building a unifying movement of success as one. The aim of the meeting is to provide a truly outstanding scientific and educational programme featuring leading figures and speakers from around the world. We have excellent topics that will make us all rise to the challenge and create a better future for our industry. Explore the website and learn more of what's in store in the coming months leading to the Congress.

I invite you to attend the Congress so please put the dates October 25th-27th 2015 in your diary and make your travel arrangements. I also ask you to share this exciting information with your colleagues so they also can plan to join us in one of the most attractive cities on earth.

Looking forward to meeting you all. It doesn't matter who you are or what you are, you will have fun in Manila. All you have to do is take a deep breath and dive in.
