Charlotte Ellicott, Head of Marketing and Content for the Vet Shows:

Charlotte Ellicott  

"All veterinary professionals have had a particularly tough few years, especially those early in their career who have missed out on key milestones. This initiative is designed to give them a real boost. Our aim is to create long-term communities of like-minded, passionate people who will use collaboration and share best practices to drive the profession forward."

"We will be hosting the VS30 annually - giving all young veterinary professionals something to aspire to. The London Vet Show is the perfect platform to host the VS30. Elevating the next generation of veterinary leaders is a real passion of the Vet Show team."
