Welcome to Vienna – bring your Family

The “Vereinigung Österreichischer Kleintiermediziner - VÖK” - is delighted to invite you to the 22nd FECAVA Eurocongress and the 31st annual conference of VÖK in Vienna from the 22nd to 25th of June 2016.

It is a great pleasure and honour to invite veterinarians, delegates and friends from Europe and all other parts of the world to visit the capital of Austria - Vienna - not only for a conference filled with interesting topics in a lecture site which is unique in the world – The Vienna Hofburg, but also for a time of friendship, for meeting colleagues and exchanging experience during a leisure walk through the historical city, visiting one of our numerous museums, spending an evening in the opera or having dinner at a Heurigen, our typical Viennese wine restaurant.

The board of the VÖK is honoured to organize the 2016 Conference in Vienna, the Capital of Austria. Beside attending a meeting with an excellent international scientific program there is a lot of opportunities to indulge the beautiful sides of life.

Vienna offers hotels in every price range. The VÖK also cooperates with the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna and the student body “Österreichische Hochschülerschaft” and we are happy to invite students at special conditions.

It will be a great pleasure to welcome you in our beautiful city in the heart of Europe.

So see you in June 2016!

Dear colleagues and friends,

I look forward to meeting you all in Vienna, venue of the 22nd EuroCongress of the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA) and the 31st Congress of the Association of Austrian Small
Animal Veterinarians–Vereinigung Österreichischer Kleintiermediziner (VÖK). Speakers from all over Europe and overseas will present an exciting and varied state-of-the-art scientific programme.

In particular, I hope to see you at the FECAVA symposium on Companion Animal Welfare, a ‘hot topic’ amongst the European institutions and organisations and of course very relevant to the veterinary profession in Europe.

A major congress in the center of Europe offers great opportunities to meet up with colleagues–'old' or new–from across Europe and share not only knowledge, but experiences too. Enjoy the Austrian hospitality and
join the fantastic social programme, which the organizers have been working hard to put together in historic Vienna.

After all, sharing knowledge and mingling with vets from all over Europe–that is what a FECAVA congress is all about.

Tschüss, and do not miss this opportunity!

I hope to see you all in June 2016.
Kind regards,


Monique Megens,
President of FECAVA
