Very many greetings from the Rwanda veterinary association. This is to inform all that from 31st August to 2nd September 2016, the Rwanda National Dairy Platform (RNDP) in collaboration with the Eastern and Southern Africa Dairy Association (ESADA) will host the 12th African dairy conference and exhibition. The event will take place in Kigali’s new state of the art “Convention Centre” managed by Radisson Blu Hotels. The conference will attract about 800 participants including nationals and 120 exhibitors from across the world. For those who may wish to attend this event visit the ESADA website for online registration and hotel booking for both the conference and the exhibition. The deadline for registrations is the end of July. Therefore, we urge you to inform dairy companies in your countries that may have an interest in exhibiting their products and services to do so now since space for the exhibition is limited to only 130 booths. You may also directly enquire by tel; +250-788308986 / 738308986 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org For the first time in the conference’s history, the conference and exhibition has attracted dairy exhibitors from every part of the world. Don’t miss this opportunity. For those of you who may wish to extend your stay we could facilitate you to join others in the annual event of naming baby gorillas in the Virunga mountains, which will take place immediately after the conference. We have arranged a number of field visits as well as tourist attraction destinations. Few slots are remaining for speakers. If you wish to make a presentation on dairy related issues, this is the only moment you have to register.
