Welcome!

The European Veterinary Dental Society (EVDS) and the European Veterinary Dental College (EVDC) are happy to invite you to a very special congress. Combine education with leisure, social life and excursions to special locations along the coast of the Mediterranean see. Take the chance of spending a few days with your family in combination with educating yourself.

Why on a Cruise?

On one side we wanted to offer something different, for a change, but we also looked carefully at our surveys which showed that the present format of the congress had some limitations. The survey suggested that the compact nature of the congress, over two days, did not allow enough time for delegates and sponsors to meet each other. Another surprising result was that we were missing a large group of delegates who were reluctant to come because they had to leave their family behind. Also being a partner of a delegate is always a frustrating situation. Either they stay home alone or they come to the congress and are still mostly alone. The cruise provides a perfect opportunity to combine education, time to see sponsors and bring the partners and family who will have numerous activities to do while their delegate attends the congress.

The Cruise

The congress will be held on a regular cruise ship where we will occupy a certain area. It is a round trip from Marseille (F) with stops in Savona (It), Barcelona (Sp) and Ibiza (Sp). We offer an all-inclusive arrangement with cabins in five different categories. The cabins are offered in double occupancy, single use has to pay extra. The overall price is quite reasonable compared the same costs for other congresses.
