The annual AHDA Conference got under way this morning at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
Over the next two days, SQPs can earn up to 55 CPD points to enhance their professional credentials, including some compulsory farm animal CPD.
The two-day event provides an extensive programme of seminars and workshops led by leading figures in the animal health and welfare industry, covering topics related to management of farm, equine and companion animals.
Bryan Lovegrove, AHDA secretary general, said: “At this year’s AHDA Conference, SQPs can engage in thought-provoking sessions led by industry experts, and access the latest trends, insights and best practices in your field.
“Immerse yourself in inspiring keynotes and interactive workshops and gain actionable strategies from the leading animal health companies.”
Mr Lovegrove highlighted the networking opportunities that are available at the Conference.
“Connect with like-minded professionals and expand your network,” he said.
The keynote speaker at this year’s Conference was Abi Seager, chief executive of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.
Ms Seager told delegates that the VMD is looking to work with key stakeholders, as part of its ongoing work.
She added that the latest Statutory Instruments ahead of the new Veterinary Medicines Regulations were on course to be laid before Parliament next month.
