2 TM JOIN US AT BSAVA CONGRESS 2019 CUTTING-EDGE INDUSTRY AT CONGRESS Don t forget all practising nurses and vets can attend the exhibition and Arena CPD for free. These top companies are already booked to join us in April PHILIP LHERMETTE BSAVA President SUE MURPHY BSAVA Congress Programme Committee Chair GRAEME ECKFORD BSAVA Congress Chair INNOVATION AND INCLUSIVITY Every inch of Congress 2019 has been crafted with you in mind. From the varied programme, to the largest small animal focussed exhibition in Europe, the whole event is designed by a team of volunteer vets and nurses. Alongside international speakers and experts, the programme is underpinned by the current needs of our profession providing topical, clinically relevant and evidence-based content within a first-class learning environment. Congress continually evolves, and (amongst countless highlights) 2019 includes an Advanced Practitioner stream, and a new interview format in Immunology. We have new themes running across many streams to ensure the content is delivered in an accessible format. Due to popular demand the ophthalmology stream makes a return in 2019, and we have increased the capacity of the incredibly well-received cardiology sessions. S C I E N T I F I C Our new stream of non-clinical CPD, Beyond the Clinics, received a fantastic reception in 2018 and we continue to provide this holistic support with lectures including how to drive day-to-day efficiencies, looking after physical health and how to build a career by design. The Congress exhibition is the only place to see the latest products, innovations and services all focused on the needs of the small animal vet and veterinary nurse. It s also completely free to attend so if you are a vet, nurse or work in practice and don t have time for lectures, make sure you take advantage of booking a free exhibition pass online. The exhibition is also a fantastic location to access relevant CPD from leading companies, and in an exciting development for next April, a new lecture theatre will be built within the exhibition floor, meaning access to latest industry insight has never been so easy. Not only is the education inspiring, but we have a full social programme to help you unwind. Movie Night continues, and our V19 Beach Party is the place to be on Saturday Night. Join us this April to create inspiring moments and forge life-long friendships. Keep an eye out for many more joining over the coming months 2 BSAVA CONGRESS 2019 PREVIEW
