As part of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD), delegates over the two-day event will be able to enhance their learning and knowledge processes through the plethora of daily sessions and extensive exhibition that is on offer.
It’s the second year the event will be held at Sandy Park and organisers are expecting more than 270 surgeons and nurses to attend on each day.
David Ritchie, Editor of Veterinary Practice, said: “As is the way these days with ever-changing technology and procedures, events such as these are fantastic for the many veterinary surgeons and nurses out there.
“Because all of them are so busy it can often be a struggle for them to keep up with all the latest information and practices within the industry, but by bringing them together for events such as this it really does helps.
“Over the course of the year veterinary surgeons and nurses are required to carry out at least 35 hours as part of their Continuing Professional Development, so by attending events such as the one at Sandy Park can help to cover a lot of those hours.”
With a large number of the delegates coming from the South West itself, Mr Ritchie said Sandy Park offered the ideal location for the event. “Sandy Park offers great facilities for us and is so easily accessible,” he said. “Not only is it just off the M5 for those attending by car, but the airport and the train stations are also very close by.
“Last year’s event was a huge success and we’re expecting this year’s event to be equally as successful and with some fantastic speakers.”
