WHO CAME FROM WHERE?

19-04-2012

It was obvious to anyone attending Congress that this was a year of high numbers. On Saturday afternoon (so with a few more late-arrivals possibly still to add) we were looking at over 7100 visitors in attendance at Congress - a rise of 22% on 2011 – which in itself was a record high. It isn’t surprising that UK professionals provided the strongest presence, but it is interesting to see who else is in the top ten – more came from the other side of the world than they ever have before, and although Congress has always welcomed good numbers from Scandinavia it is notable that Denmark is number two in the list of attending countries (see the full list below).

4937 vets were joined by 1908 nurses, with practice managers and students making up the numbers.

Add to the 7000 visitors our 3000-plus exhibitors and you have an incredible figure of more than 10,000 people from the profession and industry converging on Birmingham for five days of superb CPD, a showcase of an exhibition, and social events that will be talked about for a long-time to come. The BSAVA owes many thanks – not only to the volunteers who make this happen for their peers – but to every single visitor and exhibitor – and of course to the WSAVA and FECAVA for helping to make this a World Congress to remember.
