London Vet Show returns to Olympia

THE 2010 London Vet Show is
being held in the National Hall at
Olympia in Hammersmith on 22nd

The organisers state that it is set to
be bigger and better than last year’s
event with over 2,200 delegates and 200
exhibitors booked in by mid September.

Having picked up the “Best Trade
Launch Event” award from the
Association of Event Organisers (AEO)
for the 2009 show, CloserStill Media
reports that it is continuing to build the
event with the same ethos of delivering
excellent value for both delegates and

The conference programme is again
being co-ordinated by the RVC and will
offers over 60 hours of verifiable CPD
content covering all areas of small
animal practice from neurology in dogs
to problems with reptiles.

The speaker line-up includes:

  • Rick LeCouteur: Seizure management
    in dogs and cats – what to do when
    phenobarbitone fails;
  • Alex German: Canine and feline
  • Susan North: Diagnosing and
    managing mast cell tumours in the 21st
  • Danielle Gunn-Moore: Feline lower
    urinary tract disease in the 21st century;
  • Simon Girling: The problem with
    reptiles – common clinical problems in
    tortoises, snakes and lizards; and
  • David Church: The complicated
    diabetic – what are the options?

The business programme returns
with industry advisers such as Alison
Lambert and Alan Robinson joined by
figures from the profession including
Julie Miller of Companion Care and Adi
Nell of Medivet.

New for this year is an expanded
workshop programme, plus special
features including the Veterinary
Business Booster where delegates can
get one-to-one advice from professional
services experts in fields of marketing,
customer care, HR, finance and strategy;
and Retail Innovations where delegates
can check out the latest thinking and
consumer pet products.

The larger National Hall at Olympia
is being used this time with bigger
lecture theatres (and more leg room),
and there will be a number of features
on the balcony area including the
business theatre, clinical theatre and
workshop/seminar room – plus the bar.

There will be over 200 exhibitors
including Pfizer, Novartis, Merial,
Intervet, Virbac, Bayer, Ceva and
suppliers of everything from practice
management software to imaging equipment and pet nutrition.
This year Pfizer, Novartis, Hill’s and Woodley are sponsoring various
elements within the show – details will

programmed by the Royal Veterinary
College,” the organisers state. “It’s a
chance to experience ways to
commercially improve how your
practice operates. It’s the place to be
inspired by world-class speakers. It’s
your opportunity to meet with more
than 200 potential suppliers. And it’s all

for today’s busy vet practice.”
