We are delighted to be holding two social events at Veterinary Evidence Today. Details of the can be found below.

A 3 day conference ticket includes the social events in the price – but don’t forget you can purchase 1 accompanying guest ticket to the events!

We are also holding a poster luncheon on the 2nd November; this will be an opportunity for delegates to talk to the poster authors whilst viewing their work and then delegates can vote for their favourite poster! Winners will be announced at the Evidence Awards later that evening.

    Come as you are

We’re delighted to hold our first ever Sceptical Vets event at Ghillie Dhu.

The evening will include lively debates, delicious food and it is a great opportunity for delegates to socialise.

How it works:

  1. The speaker gives a 5 minute presentation on their chosen topic
  2. The debate is opened to the crowd – do you agree or disagree? Why?
  3. After 15 minutes the MC stops the debate
  4. A new speaker begins!
