The BVNA has said it is “confident” its 2016 congress will be “the most exciting and successful yet”.
Taking place at the Telford International Centre on 7-9 October, the three-day event will host a range of speakers and subjects, and a buzzing social calendar.
One highlight, said the BVNA, is Megan Brashear, who will be flying in from the US to share her emergency and critical care (ECC) expertise in numerous lectures. Ms Brashear lectures internationally and has previously lectured at BSAVA Congress, while her podcasts for On the Floor @Dove – a digital training resource – are world-renowned.
Ms Brashear is accompanied in the ECC stream by Louise O’Dwyer, Sam McMillan, Matt Gurney, Carl Bradbook, Laura Tobin, Shailen Jasani and Elle Haskey.
Elsewhere, anaesthesia takes the symposium slot for the conference, spanning two days, while grass roots nursing features heavily with talks by Helen Ballantyne, Sarah Collins and Isaru Gajanayake.
There’s also a dedicated student stream, designed with help from the British Association for Veterinary Nursing Students, while REVNs get to take part in their own dedicated stream on the first day, organised by Bonny Millar.
Socially, the second night will host the BVNA Fright Night, where delegates will dress up in Halloween-themed outfits, eat a three-course meal and party away to the resident DJ. A prize will be awarded to the scariest outfit. Tickets for this cost £46.
