While we have been working hard with our delivery partners to create a ground-breaking event, external forces, particularly the recent imposition of new COVID-19 restrictions on those arriving in India from within the region, have had a significant impact on our plans. In view of these challenges, the WSAVA has, with much regret, taken the decision to postpone the regional congress indefinitely.
WSAVA President Dr. Ellen van Nierop says:
“We’re committed to supporting our members across the Asia and Oceania region and we’re looking forward to holding our first regional congress soon. However, as a responsible association, we must respond to changing circumstances, even if this involves taking difficult decisions, such as this one. We continue to work closely with our delivery partners to ensure our congresses remain industry-leading, and we are looking forward to showcasing a range of new features at WSAVA World Congress in Lisbon, Portugal, in September 2023”.
We would like to thank everyone involved in the planning and organization of the first WSAVA Regional Congress for their dedication, hard work and support throughout!
