Come and meet EMERGE Veterinary at BSAVA Congress 2018
BSAVA Congress is an annual fixture in the diary for many vets. Adrian from EMERGE Veterinary will be there for the whole congress and would love to answer any questions you have about the Change Catalyst Veterinary Retreat, our coaching or career development services.
To help prepare you for congress, here are our five top tips for congress success in 2018
Plan your time carefully
Use the BSAVA Congress App to check the lecture schedule and exhibition plan. It can take ages to get around at peak traffic times, especially if you get side-tracked by friends or tempted by a beer in the sun (assuming we don’t get another blast from the beast from the east!).
Book time to chat with Adrian about his EMERGE project and what it could do for you and your veterinary career.
Book your evening meals NOW!
If you’re planning on going out to dinner with friends, book your restaurants now. In fact, you’re probably too late already. Once the big company teams have arranged their client events, finding a good restaurant locally can be challenging, which leads us to:
Speak nicely to your suppliers, you might benefit!
Your suppliers are investing large sums of money to exhibit and sponsor at Congress. They really want quality interactions with you and may have promotions, prizes and activities. If you’re lucky that’s a good night out with them but at a minimum it’s a chance to win in their prize draw.
Take my client tails.com. In stand 212, they’ve got FREE refreshments from Graze.com and Innocent Drinks as well as a month Free trial of their tailored dog food products for all delegates. You’ve nothing to lose and lots to gain by letting them talk you through their latest product offering.
Take good walking shoes
The local hotels are excellent. They’re also heavily over subscribed, so book 2018 as you leave the 2017 event. You’ll get better pricing and a much shorter commute to the show! Take good shoes for certain, but even better:
Take different types of shoes
A hot tip from one of my previous team members; take flats, mid heels and high heels. Rotating between the shoes eases the strain on your legs, especially relevant for team members standing on their company booth all day. For me, that’s trainers and smart shoes, but take your pick, whatever suits you!
Ok, so that’s all a little tongue in cheek, but I hope it lifted your spirits a little on a Friday and gets the cogs whirring round on the weekend.
Get in touch to meet with Adrian or flag him down if you see him around the show.
