What’s New at Congress? 

You asked for: New faces. New voices. New ideas. No lectures.

Join us at the VMG Congress 2024


In just two days immerse yourself across six dynamic conference streams, in an array of workshops, seminars, impactful presentations and an inspirational keynote speaker. Boredom is simply not an option at VMG Congress. Our sessions are crafted to keep you engaged by avoiding traditional lectures, including audience participation and showcasing exciting voices from both the veterinary sector and beyond. In 2024, we’re focusing on:


We all want to make animals better. How can we explore what’s important, and why?


Our teams are the heart of what we do. How can we build engagement, motivation, and happiness?


We all want to find flow in our work. How can we make our workplaces run smoothly, where everyone can thrive?


It’s always a partnership. What does the 2024 veterinary client want, and how can we deliver?


We spend a lot of time developing others. Let’s focus on our own skills and careers for a day.


Let’s look forward. What’s coming, and are we ready, for the future of veterinary leadership and management?

Leading the programme are exciting speakers from the veterinary industry and beyond. You can view the full list of speakers here.
