Welcome to the Nordic Equine Veterinary Congress 2025 in beautiful Iceland!

The Nordic Equine Veterinary Congress is a joint venture of the veterinary associations of the Nordic Countries first held in Copenhagen in 2011. This first congress aimed at equine practitioners in the Nordic countries was a great success, and the subsequent congresses in Stockholm, Bergen and even the virtual one during Covid in Finland, have proved just as popular. Now NEVC will be held for the fifth time on March 13th to 15th 2025 in Selfoss in Iceland.

The congress boasts of a list of world-renowned speakers on subjects that are especially picked to be relevant to equine vets who practice in the Nordic countries. We expect around 150 to 200 vets from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and beyond. As well as providing high end scientific content, NEVC is also very much a social event and ample time will be available for mingling and networking and establishing personal contacts with the participants.

The venue is Hotel Selfoss, located half an hour ‘s drive from the capital Reykjavík in the fast-growing town of Selfoss which is surrounded by Iceland ‘s most important farming and horse breeding country. The participants will occupy the entire hotel and the expo area will be directly in connection with the two lecture halls. Coffee breaks and Happy Hours will all be in the expo area itself. There will be two and a half days of lectures but on the Thursday and Friday we will try something new and exciting. Part of the programme will comprise of excursions with a packed lunch. These excursions to the Secret Lagoon and to the Sumarliðabær horse breeding farm will provide quite unique opportunities for sponsors to make their mark, so pick your spot and make something special out of it!
