As part of the 2021 BVNA Congress, the AZEVN were delighted to be invited to run an Exotics Stream on the Final Day.

All speakers were from the AZEVN Committee and as one of the first major in-person events to take place after the COVID-19 Pandemic, it was an amazing opportunity for the committee, members and VN’s to be able to catch up, network and interact throughout the course of the day.


Event Date:-
 Monday 4th October 2021
Event Location:-  Ironbridge 2 Suite, BVNA 2021 Congress – Telford International Centre, Telford (UK)
