VetCon COVID-19 Update16 Mar 2020
VetCon Ireland continue to keep the implications of COVID-19 for VetCon 2020 under review. Along with the events coordinators at Fota Island Resort, and in the context of the social distancing measures announced by the Irish government on March 12th, we wish to reassure our speakers, delegates and exhibitors that their health and safety is our priority.
As you are aware, the national and international situation with the coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to evolve. We expect that that event will continue as planned, even if current control measures are extended beyond the end of March. In the unlikely event that VetCon 2020 cannot be held on the 28th and 29th May, a rescheduled event date in 2020 has been provisionally confirmed with the conference venue.
If you have yet to book a ticket for Ireland’s largest and most exciting veterinary conference, forget about the early registration booking deadline. Ticket prices will not increase on the 28th March. Ticket prices will stay the same for another 2 weeks beyond the 28th March.
If you have already booked your place at VetCon 2020, don’t worry. We’re doing all we can to deliver Ireland’s most exciting veterinary conference as planned. If the event is rescheduled, you do not need to re-book. Your current booking will automatically transfer to the rescheduled date. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled event date you will receive a full ticket refund.
If you’re coming to VetCon as an exhibitor, don’t worry. VetCon will be Ireland’s largest veterinary conference in 2020. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled event date due to COVID-19 you will be offered a full refund. Room reservations made with Fota Island Resort are not subject to cancellation fees and you will not be charged for the room(s).
Kathryn and Cathal, VetCon Ireland directors, continue to plan for VetCon 2020 and in accordance with the advice from the national authorities. As a profession, an industry, a community, and a nation, we can help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Play your part, make the effort, and we can all resume business as usual before long.
