BEVA Congress Postponed Again Until September 2021
The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) Congress has been postponed from January 2021 to September 2021. BEVA leadership made the decision because of the ongoing uncertainty around holding events due to the continued risks and restrictions presented by COVID-19.

BEVA Congress is Europe’s largest equine veterinary conference and is usually held annually in September. The 2020 BEVA Congress was initially postponed until January 2021, but the decision to postpone it further was made by the elected BEVA Council and the Congress program committee, given the unpredictable circumstances of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

BEVA president Tim Mair, BVSc, PhD, DEIM, DESTS, Dipl. ECEIM, MRCVS, said: “The overriding factor in our decision-making process was to protect everyone attending Congress. We are chartering unknown territory at the moment, and the additional planning requirements needed to run a large event like BEVA Congress with social distancing measures in place will take time.

“We intend for September 2021 to mark an exciting, fresh start for the profession following the harrowing experiences of 2020,” he continued. “It should be safe for our international speakers and delegates to attend by then, getting us all back on track with networking and world-class CPD to inspire us for the new post Covid-19 world.”

BEVA Congress will be held from Sept. 4-7, 2021, at the International Convention Centre, in Birmingham, U.K.
