The Vet Expo Australias New Virtual Festival Style Event For Vets

It’s no secret that we are experiencing unprecedented times and the world we live in today has changed.

The good news is that back in March, the Federal Government deemed the veterinarian and animal health industry as essential. Fast forward to 5 months later, the Australian veterinary industry seems to be riding the storm reasonably well and to continue supporting vets and animal health professionals, we are launching The VET Expo.

What is the VET Expo?

Designed to inspire, encourage collaboration and knowledge exchange, The VET Expo is an all in one virtual meeting place, to showcase thought leaders and disruptors who promise clinical excellence and operational innovation.

A definitive event that brings all these elements together in a sleek new virtual format with forward thinking, new technology, more efficiency, and best practice. 

The VET Expo provides attendees the opportunity to access hundreds of information sessions and live demos that run alongside a virtual exhibition hall with over 100 Exhibitors from the entire veterinarian and animal health industry.
