Stimulating day of live interaction at the SPVS and VMG “Focus on our Digital Future” online event

11 lectures were presented over two streams of live sessions, and speakers covered a wide range of topics

Delegates, speakers, and exhibitors enjoyed an educational and motivational day at the first ever SPVS and VMG virtual conference “Focus on our Digital Future”.

Using an innovative virtual event app and digital platform, SPVS and VMG delivered a highly interactive event to over 250 attendees.

With 11 lectures presented over two streams of live sessions, speakers covered a wide range of topics including the challenges of teleconsultation; client communications in a post COVID-19 world; cyber security; and harnessing technology to drive efficiency and profitability. To focus attendees’ minds and relax their bodies the day commenced and finished with an hour’s yoga session.

Event sponsor, Boehringer Ingelheim, was joined by suppliers at the forefront of digital development in the virtual exhibition connecting with delegates throughout the day, and all attendees took the opportunity to network using the popular community chat facility.

Liz Somerville, VMG Board Director and CPD Lead said:

“What a great day demonstrating how innovative technology can deliver not only a fantastic day of CPD and learning, but also a platform to make new contacts, share ideas and experiences and collaborate with some of the brilliant digital companies working in the veterinary space. VMG are incredibly proud to be a part of it”

Nick Lloyd, SPVS JVP and CPD Officer added:

“This event was a welcome return for SPVS and VMG to focus on technology. It was the ideal combination of looking to the future whilst making the most of current innovations. The day was a great opportunity for practice members looking to provide themselves with the right technology for the new normal.”
