FORUM’24, is a wrap! Our annual meeting was held in Thessaloniki, Greece the weekend 13 & 14 April 2024 at Porto Palace Hotel. Four pre-congress labs were held in Friday April 12, at Porto Palace hotel and the Companion Animal Clinic of the School of Veterinary Medicine of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

The Opening Ceremony was dedicated to the memory of our former HCAVS President and beloved teacher of many of us, Professor Timoleon Rallis who passed away in 2018.

The Scientific Program of FORUM’24 was full of topics covering the scientific field of Emergencies in Companion Animal Medicine and Surgery. It was hosted in four different lecture halls with sessions of various disciplines along with Short Communications and industry sessions.
