BEVA postpones annual Congress to September 2021
BEVA Congress will now take place 4-7 September 2021.
“We intend for September 2021 to mark an exciting, fresh start for the profession following the harrowing experiences of 2020”.

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has postponed its annual Congress to September 2021.

In a press release, the organisation said the decision was made in light of the ongoing uncertainty and risks posed by COVID-19

BEVA president Tim Mair said: “The overriding factor in our decision-making process was to protect everyone attending Congress. We are chartering unknown territory at the moment and the additional planning requirements needed to run a large event like BEVA Congress with social distancing measures in place will take time.”

The Congress had previously been postponed from September this year to January 2021. Given the current situation, however, BEVA Council and the Congress programme committee has decided to push it back further.

Tim continued: “We intend for September 2021 to mark an exciting, fresh start for the profession following the harrowing experiences of 2020. It should be safe for our international speakers and delegates to attend by then, getting us all back on track with networking and world-class CPD to inspire us for the new post-COVID-19 world.”

BEVA Congress will now take place from 4-7 September 2021 at the ICC in Birmingham. Tickets will be available later this year.
