Intervet, global leader in poultry biologicals and Platinum Sponsor of the Congress organized a variety of activities throughout the event.

On registration day Intervet hosted a satellite symposium on "Recent developments in respiratory diseases in poultry". Speakers from the U.K., the U.S., the Netherlands and Intervet International presented papers on such diseases as Infectious Bronchitis and Avian Pneumovirus. Almost 250 congress delegates attended the two-hour symposium and were quite impressed with the information presented.

Intervet R&D was well represented with five speakers in the scientific program. The presentations, addressing such topics as Avian Influenza, new REO variants and Salmonella control, confirmed Intervet's status as a research-driven company.

On the Wednesday evening Intervet guests enjoyed a sunset cruise over the Bosporus, taking in the spectacular views of the city of Istanbul. The cruise was followed by a dinner at the historic Maiden's Tower - the symbol of Istanbul - located on a small island in the Bosporus.

Intervet delegates concluded that the Congress was a tremendous success. Customers and the scientific community were presented a quality opportunity to network, leaving a lasting impression on the world's leading veterinarians and scientists active in the field of poultry health.
