AHDA CONFERENCE PROGRAMME & EVENT DETAILS

AHDA is delighted to welcome you back to the AHDA Conference and Exhibition. Two days of meeting, greeting, and saying hello again after
the enforced cancelation of the event last year through Corona Virus.

There will again be a packed exhibition hall with 50 Exhibitor stands, with some of the leading animal health companies as well as the VMD,
AMTRA, COWS and SCOPS.

Delegate Workshops back again this year

Day One will start with a keynote speaker who will be the newly appointed CEO of the VMD, Abi Seager, who we are delighted to have with Abi with us. All delegates will then be able to attend a range of workshops on the Wednesday (all earning CPD points).

On Day Two, we focus on a wide range of topics relevant to today’s world in animal health and welfare. For the 2022 event, these sessions will be split into “Farm Animal” and “Companion Animal & Equine”. Delegates can of course move between the two topics.
