The ICG2022 Conference offers a wide range of exhibiting and advertising opportunities for institutions and companies interested in goat farming. Our conference offers your organization many convenient and effective ways to get your product and/or service noticed by the attendees.
The benefits you can derive from exhibiting are unique because, unlike other segments of marketing campaigns, targeting a conference audience can be both selective and direct, allowing you to meet the delegates directly.
We will offer booths of several sizes and exhibition ground space at the conference venue. Additionally, you can set up a personalized profile on the virtual event platform, and you may publish videos and brochures. We will encourage all attendees (physical and virtual) to set up user profiles on the virtual event platform. This way, attendees can easily find you, and you can effortlessly search their profiles and start conversations. Company representatives can answer participants’ questions in writing. You can also request meetings with each other. Even if both parties are there in person, the platform will help better manage your calendar.
IGA’s Board of Directors is offering special discounts for IGA Institutional members.
The following discounts will apply for IGA Institutional members:

Dear Members of the International Goat Association and prospective hosts,
The International Goat Association is accepting proposals for the 14th International Conference on Goats to be held in 2026. Interested parties are encouraged to submit proposals by July 18, 2022. All submissions and conference planning questions to Christian DeVries, IGA’s Executive Director (email@example.com).
The International Goat Conference (IGC) is a scientific and social meeting to present new research findings and provide expert input into important issues of goat production, health, food value chains, etc. Our conferences attract scientists, scholars, veterinarians, government personnel, extension workers, and producers from all over the world. Past meetings have been held successfully in the United Kingdom, France, USA, Brazil, India, China, South Africa, Mexico, Spain, and Turkey. The 13th International Conference on Goats will be in Eger, Hungary, September 18-23, 2022.
The IGA’s Board of Directors will meet during the 13th ICG in Hungary to review conference bids and hear presentations. Interested host countries should send a representative to the 13th ICG who will present to the IGA Board during the conference.
To prepare for the proposal, please refer to the IGA Board Guidelines for Planning an International Conference of Goats (https://www.iga-goatworld.com/conference-planning.html)
We appreciate your interest in continuing the tradition of the International Goat Association.

The IGA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 13th International Conference on Goats.
The new date is 3-8 October 2021.
Even though the 13th ICG is several months away, the current COVID-19 crisis has made it extremely difficult to plan any large gathering. We know the dangers of infectious diseases and the need to prevent exposure, so rather than put people at risk unnecessarily, the Board of Directors postponed this conference.
As the COVID-19 Global Pandemic moves across the world, we send our sincere hope for good health and protection to the entire IGA family. We are all affected by this situation, some more seriously than others.
We need to support each other professionally and personally as best we can. And we need a future where robust science informs public policy to prevent this type of tragedy. May we, our families, and colleagues endure this current situation, and we will see you again in Hungary in 2021!

Organisers of ICG2021
Greetings to the IGA Community! We hope that you are safe and well.
The current COVID-19 crisis has created extraordinary changes in our world. We know the dangers of infectious diseases and the need to prevent exposure. It has become challenging to plan any large gathering, so rather than put people at risk unnecessarily, the IGA Board decided to postpone the 13th International Conference on Goat.
A new date has not been chosen. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to announce the change soon.
Unfortunately, because the 13th ICG is postponed, elections for the new Board will be delayed. When a new date for the conference is selected, we will send out an official call for nominations. Any IGA member in good standing (meaning their membership dues are up-to-date) can be nominated to serve a four-year term. Check our website regularly for more information in the coming days and months!

Oral Report from Dr. Juan Capote, the newly-elected IGA president, during the closing session of the XI ICG held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, September 24-27, 2012
Dear IGA members,
Welcome to the closing session of the XI International Goat Conference.
In 2005, a new IGA strategic plan was developed. In retrospect, this strategic plan was very ambitious and consequently not all goals have been achieved as of today. Nevertheless, we have made great strides and we are optimistic about the future of IGA and of goats in this world.
