The BSAVA Congress exhibition in the Barclaycard Arena will become three days in 2018. The changes are in response to extensive market research with BSAVA membership and volunteers, delegates, and exhibitors.
From Thursday 5 to Saturday 7 April 2018 delegates can see the latest technology, consumables and services on offer in the exhibition, with Sunday 8 April 2018 having a pure focus on CPD.
BSAVA Congress will remain a four-day event and the CPD focused Sunday will offer exciting new education opportunities, including many exhibitors offering sessions.
Delegates attending the full four days of Congress will still be able to gain up to 31 hours of CPD for a vet or up to 30 hours for a veterinary nurse. The Congress Programme Committee is busy developing the ambitious programme of over 450 lectures from world-renowned speakers for BSAVA Congress 2018 and will announce the programme later in the summer.
Angharad Belcher, Head of Congress said: “Over the last six decades, Congress and the BSAVA as a whole have continually evolved and innovated, always aiming to improve the delegate experience.
“Our intensive feedback and research consultation highlighted this opportunity to introduce a new format for 2018, and we look forward to share this with vets and veterinary nurses later on this year.”
