The ticket office is now open for BEVA Congress 2012 and early birds can take advantage of some “significant discounts” if they book before the end of July.
The event, which will be held on September 12-15 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, is widely renowned as the world’s best equine veterinary congress, not only for its first-class science programme but also for its superb schedule of social events.
Spread over three days, with five in-depth programmes running concurrently in five separate lecture halls, the BEVA scientific programme will cater for vets and vet nurses at every level.
This year it has been drawn up with the busy general practitioner in mind. It covers a broad range of predominantly day-to-day equine medicine and surgery, through traditional lectures, panel discussions, interactive forums and ‘how to’ sessions.
- An ophthalmology panel with Dennis Brooks;
- Sue Dyson on what’s new in the assessment of proximal metacarpal region pain in sport horses;
- Danny Scott on dermatology,
- A potentially heated debate on the practice of equine tendon firing (thermocautery);
- A practical careers session for new graduates; and
- An afternoon on aspects of practice management.
A new introduction for this year is a daily current affairs slot, which includes the News Hour Congress Quiz on the final day, while the captivating John Walmsey (RCVS specialist in equine surgery) will be giving the plenary lecture on forty years of technological advances in equine practice.
To help the time-pressed manage their lecture attendance more effectively, BEVA Congress’s Encore Room (sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health) gives delegates the chance to play back missed lectures at their convenience.
- This year’s BEVA Congress runs from September 12-15, 2012.
