A team from SRUC has returned from Europe’s premier conference-led exhibition for veterinary professionals.

The London Vet Show was an opportunity to showcase SRUC services that support the veterinary profession. Staff from vet services and education collaborated to promote veterinary nursing qualifications, including the newly launched degree course, veterinary CPD, health planning, health schemes and diagnostic testing.

The event, which attracted 5,600 delegates, gave staff a chance to meet clients from across the country, participate in CPD and network with key businesses. The team carried out market research on 100 vets and vet nurses using online surveys to assess demand for a Quality Management in Vet Practice qualification and Farm Vet Tech training.

Kirsty Young, Head of Department, Animal Care & Equine, said: “The London Vet Show gave us an opportunity to showcase our products from across research, education and consulting, speaking to new and existing clients as well as SRUC graduates. We had productive meetings with veterinary corporates, independent vet practices and vet industry suppliers. Our corner stand position and prize draw helped increase footfall and we were delighted with the number of responses to our client surveys, the results of which we will use to inform product development.”
