Anonymous Feedback from our 2018 Delegates

“The AZEVN Conference was a wonderful weekend and from the warm welcome, to all the staff, delegates and sponsors, you could not have asked to be with better people and l felt incredibly privileged to be in a room with such passionate and knowledgeable people, who have done such great things for wildlife, exotic pets and wild animals alike.
As I am a student and at the very start of my career, I was so excited to see what it is like when the Exotics and Veterinary world mix. I was not disappointed, each talk was interesting and taught me something new. I felt like a sponge, trying to retain each and every piece of information and knowledge shared, to learn from it in the future.
It also felt very exciting to be apart of something so significant. An organisation that is growing so quickly and does such fantastic work for charities such as Wildlife Vets International. I also love that it is run by Veterinary Nurses for Veterinary Nurses as it makes everything very relatable.”
