Because there was a delay in the opening date of the International All Breeds Cup, the organisers decided to extend the closing date as well.
The initial opening date of Feb 1st had to be delayed because of a mismatch between the rules of IABC and ENCI (Italian kc). The ENCI rules don’t allow competitions with a limit of entries whereas the IABC allows maximum of 350 dogs to ensure a better atmosphere. Some weeks passed until green light was given to the organising committee, causing some delay.
At the same time also a new location was announced.
It was moved from an indoor equestrian centre north of Milan to a 5 star holiday camp near Lido de Jesolo, the famous beach resort of Venice.
The holiday camp offers a very special discount to the participants, more info to be found on :http://iabc2015.com/
