It is with great pleasure that we welcome you back in Ghent, Belgium for the 3rd Edition of the European Practitioner Symposium on Equine Reproduction!

The ESER-2022 will take place on October 20-21, 2022 at the Ghent International Convention Center. The focus will be on mare infertility, semen handling, OPU-ICSI and donkey breeding. We have brought together a magnificent team of speakers whom are all skilled lecturers with a broad clinical experience. ESER-2022 is a fundraiser event to benefit the International Symposium on Equine Reproduction (ISER) that will take place in Brazil in 2024. Proceeds of ESER-2022 will be donated to the ISER trust.

COVID-19 - If it is necessary to cancel the symposium or the pre-symposium courses (due to changes in COVID-19 regulations or other), delegates will receive a full refund of symposium and/or course registration fees, but ESER and its partners will not be responsible for any additional costs incurred by the delegate including travel and accommodation expenses. Detailed cancellation policy can be found under Terms & Conditions.

Why do I have to pay VAT?

In the past, an EU-based business that participated in an educational event in Belgium (or any country within the EU) did not have to pay VAT in the host country. In the summer of 2021, a European ruling changed this. The new ruling states that VAT must be paid in the host country. Thus, if your business is based in an EU country and you have an EU VAT number, you are still required to pay VAT to the Belgian authorities. Read the full ruling here.
