Bringing together the small animal veterinary community to drive innovation and advancement of science and education

Thursday 24 - Saturday 26 March 2022


BSAVA Congress is the embodiment of small animal veterinary medicine. It delivers industry leading content, the latest evidence based science, and it does this through the community of highly engaged supporters and volunteers.

We have reflected on how the world has changed since the pandemic. Whilst we enjoyed a successful meeting in 2021, we all very much missed the face-to-face interaction and we look forward to coming together again & welcome you to our new home - Manchester Central!


New venue |

Our move from Birmingham to Manchester Central provides the opportunity to bring science and industry under one roof! With a vibrant and exciting city on the doorstep to explore after hours.

New format |

Following the success of the 2021 meeting our virtual learning platform will return! The enhanced hybrid format for Congress 2022 will be a blended delivery, encompassing the face-to-face component in Manchester, with a virtual event taking place at the same time.

New exhibition |

Central Hall will host a wide range of leading industry representatives, showcasing their latest products and services. Join them in the exhibition theatres for additional CPD sessions or learn about their product launches.

Features you can find on the exhibition floor include:

  • Meeting Hub
  • Volunteer Lounge
  • Meet the Speakers
  • Wellness Centre
  • Clinical Abstract Posters

The virtual platform will also feature our exhibitors online in parallel with the live event, with representatives available to chat in real time.

New programme |

The programme for 2022 has been completely reimagined, to create a more immersive and engaging experience and journey! With a new concept for delivery, each stream will include a variety of storyboard, case work, debate, non-clinical and interactive sessions.


More event updates and a sneak preview will be available in early autumn!
