Why Exhibit At
BVA Live 2023

If you need a cost-effective way of getting in front of vets, you need to be at this major, new sector gathering, running at Birmingham NEC 11 - 12 May 2023

BVA Live is a British Veterinary Association's event, brought to you with CloserStill Media, global event organisers and the creators of the London Vet Show. CloserStill builds events that work better for exhibitors than any other trade show you have experienced. You can expect: 

  • After the success of the 2022 launch of BVA Live, over 1,500 attendees are expected to attend in 2023. At last, an event to match the audience density of the London Vet Show!
  • BVA Live utilises the same core principles of the London Vet Show including a staggered conference programme to ensure consistent flow of customers around the exhibition floor and to your stand.
  • The event has five, core CPD streams which guarantees to attract veterinary buyers and budget influencer but also encourages plenty of time on the exhibition floor and more time on your stand.
  • Year-round marketing campaign and high-quality CPD and ensuring strong delegate attendance, supported by the BVA.
  • BVA Live works in tandem with veterinary media, community groups and an effective marketing campaign to ensure the 2023 dates are a staple in very UK veterinary practice.

Laura Collings - Co Founder & Director - Vetted Recruitment

We've been working with the Vet Shows for a number of years. We've always really enjoyed the events I've always found and really worthwhile. So when you guys talked to us about this new event, when we were at the London Vet Show, it just seemed a no brainer for us. And we wanted to be here on the first first one to say that we were here at the inaugural event. I like that intimate setting because we are, first of all, business and it's for us, it's all about the quality of conversations and quality of relationships that we can build. So when you have for you, potentially fewer delegates to speak to at any one time, you are spending more time with them and you can go back to them and say remember that 20-30 minute conversation that we had in Birmingham and then it builds from there, rather than we spoke briefly for five years before. There were some exhibitors that we kind of scoped out before the show, and wanted to go and have a chat with and again, because it's just a little bit quieter, we were able to go and do that.

I needed the CPD hours and because I've got young children at home, it's difficult to find time even to do online stuff. So to get a day out for a live event is a luxury. I'm really enjoying it. I've got a practical hands-on session this afternoon with James Rushton on keratotomy. Its just like the London Vet Show here except in the summer which is perfect timing.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for all your help and support at BVA. It was a great exhibition, your entire team were so helpful and supportive, nothing was too much trouble for any of you and even helped us to set up our stand. Two days were perfect, and everyone was so friendly, the organisers, the exhibitors and the delegates. A great atmosphere all round and definitely worth doing. We thoroughly enjoyed the social side of it all too 😊.

I am graduating 13th of July and starting my new job in September. It is my first veterinary conference and it has exceeded my expectations. It’s really informative and very useful to start meeting people in session and get networking within the profession. I have really enjoyed it, especially the interactive workshops and just meeting all the different exhibitors and all the products that you'd be using in practice, are learning more about them, so you won’t be left just advising them without any knowledge behind them.

Amazing experience so far, looking forward to tomorrow learning more and just increasing our knowledge and starting to network with new colleagues.
