BSAVA Congress Breaks Records
Congress confirmed as biggest ever

The BSAVA World Congress being held in Birmingham this weekend has broken records.

By Friday afternoon, more than 7000 visitors had registered, not including the thousands of exhibitors working on the stands in the commercial exhibition currently taking over the NIA. There are therefore over 10,000 representatives from the veterinary profession and industry who have attended, making it the biggest ever held in the UK - and with Congress continuing over the weekend, numbers can only go up.

Andrew Ash, who tomorrow will hand over his presidency of the BSAVA to Mark Johnston, labelled the congress "a jewel in the crown of our profession."

Carl Padgett, President of the BVA offered his congratulations to the BSAVA, saying: "Congratulations to BSAVA for a tremendously successful conference that is firmly placed on the global stage, with a world-class programme fitting for a combined congress with WSAVA."

"It is so nice to come here and not just get one medal but two and in such a competitive field. Those girls are fast. It means a lot."
