There is no doubt that BSAVA Congress 2022 was a resounding success, with the breadth and depth of the programme attracting a significant proportion of the UK’s veterinary profession, as well as many veterinary professionals from further ashore. The new structure and format piqued the curiosity of many individuals, and, judging from the feedback I’ve received, exceeded expectations.

Perhaps the most powerful aspect of this year’s congress was the strengthening of existing communities and the founding of new ones. Seeing those broad smiles, nods of acknowledgement and wide-open arms of delegates as they met peers, colleagues and friends, whether planned or serendipitously, was simply heart-warming.

As I look back at BSAVA Congress 2022, it will be the strength of the community that I will remember. Science and CPD will forever be the foundation of Congress. It will always underpin the quality of service we can deliver, but community – that will be treasured.

We were delighted with our experience at BSAVA 2022. The move to Manchester seemed to be well received by both delegates and exhibitors and we personally enjoyed the vibrancy of the city, the light and open new venue and the great travel options. We had lots of engaging conversations with delegates over the course of the event and also had a lot of fun!

The Hill’s team absolutely loved the new Manchester venue and surrounding area. There were abundant internal spaces and lovely external venues to entertain and connect with delegates. The organising team were extremely easy to work with and flexible. We also appreciate their keen eye toward continuous improvement year on year based on previous learnings.

Just nice to be back at congress, attending lectures in person and seeing colleagues face to face again. Organisers had clearly made a real effort to freshen things up a bit

Amazing to come back to normal and see people enjoying and learning again
