IIPTF - The Most Mismanaged Vet Seminar Ever Attended
25 Jan 2011

I am saying this in anger because of the blatant lies and mismanagement of organisers of the IIPTF vet seminar. The guy at the clinic who came to collect Rs 1500/- (yes there was fees for vets!) said with all conviction "more than 100 already registered and we expect around 500 vets to come".
The seminar timings were from 10am to 5 pm on 22nd jan 2011. I reached the venue at around 10.15 a.m. and could easily count number of vets to be
FIVE. When the seminar finally started at around 11.30 a.m, it had less than 20 vets present.
It resulted in complete waste of time for all the vets attending the conference on a working day when everyone had come to learn few tips from the speaker or from proposed huge gathering of Vets (around 500). The length of time taken by a sponsoring pet food (eukanuba) company was huge and that too in 2 parts. I have few questions to ask the organizers.
If the response was so poor, why did'nt they cancel the event?
Was the only idea to add events and corner sponsorship money from the seminar?
Why were'nt any certificates were given to all the participating vets?
Why the complete lecture of Dr Chen was not provided in the kit. It had only magazine and sponsors directory only?
It is mandatory to ask feedback from participants about the event . Why we were not given any feedback forms to bring this irregularity and shame to your notice?
If this is the attitude of IIPTF organizers towards vets in general, I am afraid it wont work any longer.
