The European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine – Companion Animals Congress, scheduled for September 2020, would have taken place in Barcelona. COVID-19 affected the world, therefore ECVIM-CA was obliged to convert the congress into a digital format. Quite a challenge, because converting a physical congress into an online environment isn’t easy, especially on such short notice.
Pauwels Congress Organisers, organizer of the ECVIM-CA congress for already more than ten years, joined forces with Houben Souren, an experienced and professional organization when it comes to audiovisual support and also the perfect partner for the online ECVIM-CA congress. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Houben Souren focused on finding inventive solutions for online events, e.g. by developing a (tailor-made) congress portal and on-demand video sessions. Congress attendees can easily access the digital conference rooms via a congress portal with a personal and secure login code. When organizing this digital ECVIM-CA congress, Pauwels Congress Organisers and Houben Souren, came up with a perfect script where quality and interaction represent the core of the script. All presentations in the different streams will be recorded and accessible after the congress. Recordings are only available for registered participants. So if participants miss some presentations or cannot attend the online congress during the congress days they will be able to re-watch them at their own time.
Eye for detail, perfection, and preparation are key elements for a successful online event. In fact, Pauwels Congress Organisers ensures that the program runs smoothly, also all contacts with the keynote- and abstract speakers are best maintained by them. Houben Souren is responsible for all audiovisual arrangements and the professional support of the speakers during the recording of their presentations. Every effort is made to create the feeling of a live event. In the studio of Houben Souren in Roermond, together with Pauwels Congress Organisers, the ECVIM-CA online congress will be monitored and supervised on September 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th 2020.
Both Pauwels Congress Organisers and Houben Souren are partners of the Maastricht Convention Bureau and for this reason, we are extremely proud that, even during these difficult and unpredictable times, they’ve joined forces in order to make online conferences also a great success!
