ESPN 2017

The ESPN (European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition)is the one of the most important scientific symposia on poultry nutrition in the world. This year it will take place in Salou / Vila-Seca, Tarragona, Spain, during May 8-11, 2017. As last time you can meet us there. We will also have one of the sponsor booths so look us up!

Right before the ESPN gets started we have organized a Satellite Symposium to launch a new molecule with the support of front line researchers in the field of Poultry Gut Health. Before this technical session we will gather a Spanish lunch. Feel free to join us, just let us know upfront by contacting us ([email protected]).
