BEVA delegates congratulate Congress Exhibitors
Three outstanding exhibitors at this year’s British Equine Veterinary Association Congress (11 -14 September 2019) were given special awards for their creative use of stand space. BEVA delegates voted for the winners of the competition, which was sponsored by Veterinary Practice magazine. Delegates voted via the BEVA App, identifying exhibitors who showcased their brand with flair and imagination within an inviting environment.
Boehringer Ingelheim won the Veterinary Practice Best Large Stand Award for their fun, interactive Boehringer Ingelheim Derby stand which gave delegates the chance to compete on horse racing simulators.
Pete Holland UK and Ireland Sale Manager at Boehringer Ingelheim said: “We are having a great time at BEVA this year and have enjoyed spending fun time on the stand with all of our customers and we are delighted to have won this award.”
The Donkey Sanctuary won the Veterinary Practice Best Shell Scheme Stand Award for their colourful use of space and display of educational resources that are used to promote their outstanding work worldwide.
Chris Platts Laboratory Manager at the Donkey Sanctuary said: “Our tubs of hundreds of knitted donkeys made by our dedicated supporters were the talk of Congress and the launch of the dentistry edition of The Clinical Companion has been very well-received.”
Swissvet won the Veterinary Practice Best New Exhibitor Award for their streamlined patriotic display of power dentistry equipment. Dr Ruedi Steiger CEO of Swissvet said: “We have distributors throughout Europe, but it is the first time Swissvet has exhibited at BEVA. It has been a fantastic experience and I am thrilled to have won this award. I definitely plan to come back next year.”
