BEVA has reported record numbers at its 2016 congress, with almost 1,000 vets registering to attend the event.

2016 BEVA congress organisers enjoyed “record” sales of exhibition space

Organisers also enjoyed “record” sales of exhibition space at the three-day congress, which took place in September at the ICC in Birmingham.

Senior visitors

BEVA said the number of equine vets and mixed practitioners increased by 4% for this year’s event, with more than half of all delegates being qualified for more than 12 years – therefore likely to be directors, partners or senior members of their practice.

Chief executive David Mountford described the growth as a symbiotic cycle.

He said: “Delegates gave us 4+ star ratings, while 97% would recommend us and 84% said we provide great value.”

Unique opportunity

“Speakers appreciate the prestige and the made-for-purpose lecture theatres and exhibitors get to see the right sort of customers. Add to this BEVA is a charitable organisation that ploughs any surplus back into the industry, and we’re left with a unique atmosphere.”

Next year’s BEVA Congress will be held on 13-16 September at The Arena and Convention Centre at Kings Dock in Liverpool.
