Vets Now has announced its emergency and critical care congress for the veterinary profession is going virtual this year due to uncertainty around coronavirus.
Vets Now, which hosts the event, has announced the congress will move online resulting in more places for delegates and exhibitors as well as an expanded CPD offering.
This year’s Vets Now ECC Congress will take place in a hi-tech virtual conference centre, which will “provide just as many networking opportunities as the traditional event in Leeds”.
Vets Now announced professionals Dan Fletcher, Megan Brashear and Claire Sharp are among several high-profile speakers who have agreed to speak at the event, which is due to take place across four days in November.
Dan Lewis, Vets Now’s national ECC lead, devised the virtual Congress programme, said: “This move online has been months in the planning and we’re hugely excited about the opportunities it will bring for delegates, exhibitors and speakers, who we hope will be joining us from across the world.
“The interactive platform we’re using is cutting edge and it provides so much more than just webinars. There will be live content, an interactive exhibition hall and more opportunities than ever for delegates to network and learn from some of the world’s leading veterinary experts discussing emergency and critical care.”
He added: “Our programme this year has been carefully tailored to provide an inclusive learning experience for vets and vet nurses no matter what stage they’re at in their career, from students through to specialists.
“We’ll obviously miss seeing everyone in person, but we’re very excited that we can gather together online for a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The Vets Now ECC Congress 2020 will be held between 4- 7 November 4 and online booking will open soon.
