BEVA Congress reminds profession of ticket deadlines
"This year's congress aims to enlighten, inform, educate and encourage in a lively, fun and engaging environment" - David Lloyd, BEVA Congress Scientific Committee Chair.
Further details announced for upcoming congress.

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) is reminding veterinary professionals that the deadline for the BEVA Congress early bird ticket price is approaching.

Early bird tickets, offering access to the congress at a discounted price, are available until Monday 1 August 2022. At this price, the tickets cost £499 for veterinary surgeons and £187 for veterinary nurses.

BEVA is also reminding veterinary professionals of its 'Practice Passes' offer, which provides a combination of physical and virtual tickets, so the whole practice can benefit from CPD. Available in three packages based on practice size, the Practice Passes are also only purchasable until 1 August.

The congress will take place from 7-10 September 2022 at the ACC in Liverpool, promising more than 150 speakers focused around the theme 'Championing the Equine Vet'. 

David Lloyd, Scientific Committee Chair for BEVA Congress, said: “With the theme of championing the diverse opportunities the profession offers as well as addressing some of the non-clinical challenges currently being faced, this year’s congress aims to enlighten, inform, educate and encourage, in a lively, fun and engaging environment.”

Delegates will hear from Dr Pat McCue in the first plenary lecture, looking at current practice and future potential in equine reproduction. The second plenary lecture. The Peter Rossdale Memorial, will explore evidence in perinatology, and the speaker, Dr Celia Marr, will remind delegates of Dr Rossdale's life and achievements.

President of BEVA Huw Griffiths and members of the Congress Committee have shared the parts of congress that they are most looking forward to. 

Huw Griffiths said: “I am especially looking forward to hearing from Amy Grice, who is a world leader in the scientific evaluation of the recruitment and retention situation in equine veterinary practice. 

“She has based her work in the US on comparisons of the different generations of equine vets and the interactions between the generations and the failures and the opportunities that arise from this work.

“Of special interest to BEVA is her understanding of generation Z graduates who are the future of our profession. Everything she has to tell us will help ensure we maximise their satisfaction and longevity within our industry.”

“I'm most looking forward to the plenary lecture by Pat McCue and the Peter Rossdale Memorial Lecture,” said David Lloyd.

“Dr McCue’s presentation will be fascinating considering his long and distinguished speciality, followed by a tribute to Peter Rossdale, who was a huge influence and mentor to me.”

Rosina Lillywhite shared her excitement for congress: “For me a highlight is the human factors session. This is a topic that I have developed a strong interest in recently, and I hope that the team at VetLed can inspire others to get on board with its importance.

“But what I love most about Congress is meeting new people and developing new friendships. It’s an excellent opportunity to catch-up with old colleagues and meet new ones. It has been a long time since I’ve seen some of my friends due to COVID so I can’t wait to reunite with them.”

Further information, including how to book tickets, is available on the BEVA Congress website.
