All set for VetsSouth 2018

The fourth VetsSouth conference and exhibition opens its doors at Sandy Park Stadium, Exeter on 7th and 8th February

In excess of 200 delegates are expected to attend the
packed two-day CPD event in Exeter this month, which
has been designed to be useful for the whole veterinary team. Over 27 hours of CPD are on offer throughout the
event and vets, nurses and practice managers can handpick
the lectures of most interest and relevance to them.

Registration opens at 9am on both days, with doors
closing at 5.30pm on Wednesday and 4.45pm on Thursday,
giving attendees ample time to explore the lecture streams,
visit the supporting commercial exhibition to sample
the latest products on offer in the industry, plus feast
on the refreshments throughout the day and renowned
lunch menu. Supported by Veterinary Practice, Improve
International and 5m Publishing, VetsSouth boasts two
clinical streams focused on small animal medicine and
small animal surgery, a nursing stream on day one
covering topics such as anaesthesia, blood transfusions,
dealing with shock and nursing the trauma patient, and a practice management day on Thursday, which will cover
recruitment and retention of staff, client communication and
social media.

A new addition for 2018 is a series of workshops which
run alongside the four streams, focusing on specialist areas
such as dentistry, neurology, ophthalmology, exotics and
mindfulness. Exhibitors will also take to the floor of the new
demo stage in 45-minute intervals to provide presentations
on their products and services.

Industry-renowned speakers including Pip Boydell, David
Williams, Helen Rooney, Alan Robinson, Molly Varga, Neil
Forbes and Jon Hall are among the well-known names
leading the VetsSouth lectures and workshops.

The exhibition competition is back this year, encouraging
delegates to visit each stand and collect quiz answers
in order to be entered into a prize draw to win a Kindle
Fire. Every ticket holder will benefit from the added bonus
of a free six-month subscription to Bitesize, Improve International’s online CPD platform.

From 5pm on 7th February, there will be a specialist
question and answer session in the exhibition area. If you’re
attending the event and would like to submit a neurology
or ophthalmology-related question to the panel in advance,
