50th anniversary


The industry associate sponsors of the Irish Pig Health Society enable the organisation to help maximise the health, production and economic status of our national pig herd through the dissemination of information. Together with our associate sponsors, we strive to provide the latest news and research into all aspects of pig production.

This year, The Irish Pig Health Society (IPHS) is delighted to celebrate its 50th Anniversary of the IPHS Symposium on Tuesday, the 9th April 2019 at the Midlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise, Co. Laois.

While it is moving to a new venue for 2019, the format will be similar to previous years with registration commencing at 12.00pm with a hog roast lunch and trade stands in place. Presentations will commence at 2.00pm until 6.30pm, with a refreshment break at 4.00pm, followed by an evening meal and light entertainment at 7.30pm.

To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we will be inviting our past presidents to attend and we are also offering additional “farmer” tickets free of charge to customers of your choice. The quantity of farmer tickets will be dependent on which sponsorship package you choose.

All event sponsors will receive two complimentary entries to the event and two dinner tickets. Additional entry and/or dinner tickets can be purchased in advance by contacting organisers, directly at a cost of €30pp, entry only or €50pp, including dinner.

Stand spaces are limited this year, so to avoid any disappointment, space will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
