Vets Now’s annual Congress is truly a celebration of the emergency veterinary community.
At Congress, you get the most up-to-date info and insights on emergency and critical care straight from the profession’s leading names. But that’s not all. You also have an opportunity to connect with these experts, chat with delegates and Vets Now staff, and network with some of the world’s biggest providers of veterinary technology.
One of those is Woodley Equipment Company, who have been exhibiting at Congress since 2009 and been the main sponsor since 2015. Here we ask Woodley’s regional account manager, Garret Marson, why his company have returned to Congress for each of the past 10 years.
Do you see a good return on investment from Congress?
Yes, Woodley is a specialist in the supply and support of veterinary emergency and critical care laboratory products. We concentrate our efforts in the development of unique, value for money, innovative products that directly benefit patient care. The Vets Now ECC Congress provides a brilliant opportunity to mix with specialists who use our type of products every day. The CPD programme is directly relevant to our business and we see a positive return on investment each year with many referrals from people who have successfully used our products.
Does the busy social programme and networking opportunities help?
Absolutely. Meeting a wide variety of people across Congress who work in out-of-hours emergency and critical care is very useful to keep us aware of the latest trends. Being able to mix and network with delegates and other exhibitors in such a friendly, informative, relaxed setting works well.
What makes Congress unique?
It’s a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with an informative programme of lectures, enabling a very positive and enjoyable environment to meet people.
What advice would you give to first-time visitors?
Relax and treat Congress as an informal, friendly opportunity to mix with delegates and exhibitors, while also learning about the latest topics in emergency and critical care and developing great business contacts.
