Speaking at BVA Live...

Clinical Theatres

Learn the latest clinical tips, tricks and advancements in two small animal clinical streams and a nursing theatre delivered by world-class veterinary speakers. Deep dive into clinical topics you see everyday including ECC, BOAS surgery, feline medicine, opthalmology, toxicology dental, cardiology and so much more.


Discussions & Debates

BVA Live puts you at the heart of the profession and hands you the microphone. Attend lively debates and discussions covering the issues you face and don't just sit back and listen - have your say. And don't miss out on critical business advice and important career development sessions. 


Networking & Exhibition

Make strategic connections and test out new equipment, services and technology. You'll save precious time throughout the rest of the year when you meet with current and new suppliers, try out new products and negotiate practice-transforming solutions in all in one place. 



  • I’m really excited about our first BVA Live event. It’s a wonderful opportunity to take part in high-quality clinical and non-clinical CPD, as well as to learn more about some of the vital work BVA does behind the scenes, such as lobbying for better animal welfare standards and championing our profession in the public eye.

  • In 2020, vets have had to face challenges like never before. By launching BVA Live now we are planning for a post-Covid time in June 2021 when we will be able to come together in person to look at the way forward for the veterinary profession and share together our vision for the future.

  • I’m excited to be speaking at BVA Live 2021. After a tough 2020 it will be great to get the community together to discuss, network, and learn in person. With clinical, and non-clinical CPD sessions, it should have something for everyone

  • As a clinician with a passion for care of elderly cats I am delighted to speaking at BVA Live on the topic of ‘Super Senior cats’. I’m looking forward to an opportunity to network with professional colleagues and share my enthusiasm and tips for elderly cat medicine.
