The London Vet Show named Best Trade Show at AEO Awards 2019
For the third time in its short history, the London Vet Show has been named Best Trade Show (2000-8000 sqm) at this year's Association of Event Organisers Excellence Awards.
The highly-contested industry awards, held at Grosvenor House on 14th June, commended the London Vet Show’s huge growth both in delegates and exhibitors in 2018, during a difficult phase for the veterinary sector. The judges also commented on the breath and quality of the CPD conference and world-class exhibitors, which cover a comprehensive range of veterinary verticals.
Of particular acclamation was the new initiatives launched at the London Vet Show which are helping push to push the profession forward such as “Vet Show Live Stream” and “Vet Hour”. Also highlighted was new partnerships with important groups such as Vets: Stay, Go, Diversify as well as the continued successful work with the British Veterinary Association and Royal Veterinary College.
When the London Vet Show launched in 2009 and 1,977 delegates attended with 150 exhibitors. The 10th edition in 2018 welcomed more than 5,500 delegates and 450 exhibitors last November - a staggering 20% of the veterinary population attending the two-day extravaganza now located at ExCel London.
Honoured by the recognition, MD of CloserStill Media’s Vet Portfolio Rob Chapman, commented: "We are hugely proud to deliver the UK’s best trade show to the veterinary sector – a profession that truly deserves the best of the best when it comes to CPD. This award reflects the hard work and dedication the LVS team put into delivering an event experience second-to-none experience for our visitors, exhibitors and partners – all who we’d like to thank for their continued support.”
Chris Down, Group Event Director for the London Vet Show, added “It is very pleasing to see that the judges recognised the importance of the London Vet Show’s design: providing outstanding CPD and a true business platform for the professions suppliers.”
