BVA Congress 2007: Pulling together

Political and CPD
2007 marks the launch of a ‘new-look’ BVA Congress – an event for the whole of the profession, combining both political and CPD sessions.


For the first time in many years, the Congress will be held in the city of Belfast, a city that has been transformed over the past few years with superb conference and exhibition venues, fantastic visitor attractions, stylish bars, restaurants and hotel accommodation. There is strong local support for the event from our territorial division, the North of Ireland Veterinary Association (NIVA) who celebrate their centenary in 2007, as well as those encompassed within Veterinary Northern Ireland.

The Congress will be held at the internationally famous Europa Hotel located in the heart of Belfast. The largest hotel in Northern Ireland, it has superb conference facilities and is one of Belfast’s favourite meeting venues.
