By Air 

London is the best connected city in the world and is reachable quickly by almost any location around the world. The four main airports surrounding London are frequented by several airlines, with a wide range in prices and cities, arriving and leaving London. The new location of the London Vet Show, the London ExCel can be reached very quickly and conveniently by any of the four airports, as the ExCel is very well connected to public transport.                                       

London City Airport                                                                                                                                                                
The London City aiport is only five minutes away from the event location and offers up to 350 flights per day, from a total of 40 different international               locations. Once you have arrived here, you can choose a five minutes taxi or DLR ride to ExCel.

London Heathrow, Standsted and Gatwick
These three airports are reachable within an hour travelling time, using the DLR or Express trains from either one of the airports. All three are frequented by several airlines and offer many international flights per day.



It has come to our attention that some of our delegates/exhibitors have been approached by a company called Exhibition Housing Services which looks like it may be aligned to The London Vet Show.

Please note that this is actually a fraud and is nothing to do with the The London Vet Show or CloserStill Media.

Unfortunately this entity has been operating in this manner for years and the authorities do not seem to be able to deal with them.

Please DO NOT book rooms or complete and/or return any paperwork to this company as you will then be legally bound to their terms and conditions.




The companion animal stream will again be programmed by Jill Maddison from the RVC. Each year the country’s leading speakers educate on the conditions affecting your practice.


Programmed by the RVC Equine and the BVA in partnership with BEVA, enables the mixed practitioner to learn new skills and knowledge to take back to their practice and use in their day to day work.


The BVA farm stream is aimed at the general practitioner, particularly those in mixed practice who may not be treating farm animals exclusively.


The business programme brings together the leading thinkers in the industry to discuss the processes, models and principles that can take your practice to the next level.

BVA Congress

Proud to host: BVA Congress is the major event in the veterinary political calendar bringing veterinary surgeons together to debate and discuss the hot topics of the day.

BVA Career Development
