The World Veterinary Vaccine Congress is a two day event with a pre-event workshop where the global animal health industry meets to discuss scientific, regulatory and commercial issues from new innovative vaccine technologies to emerging disease. The veterinary vaccines market is becoming increasingly important and growing in a way we haven’t seen before.

With issues such as an increased focus on zoonotic infectious diseases jumping to humans and the economic impact of disease on livestock of economic importance, it is clear why veterinary vaccines are coming into the limelight. This event will provide a platform to put your company at the forefront of the veterinary vaccines industry and take advantage of this time of flux.
