The BSAVA has announced the exhibition for its 2018 congress is to be reduced to three days.
According to the association, the change – from four days – is in response to “extensive” market research with delegates, exhibitors, and BSAVA membership and volunteers.
The BSAVA said while the congress itself is to remain four days, the exhibition will be open only from 5-7 April. Sunday 8 April will instead have a “pure focus” on CPD, it said, offering “exciting new education opportunities”.
In terms of CPD, the BSAVA said delegates attending the full four days will still be able to gain up to 31 hours for a vet or up to 30 hours for a VN.
Evolving and innovating
Head of congress Angharad Belcher said: “Over the past 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 sharing this with vets and VNs.”
The 2017 edition of the event – the last with a four-day exhibition – takes place at the Birmingham ICC and Barclaycard Arena April 6 to 9.
