Why Attend

The animal health ecosystem is going through a digital transformation, as disruptive tools reshape the way we think about the prevention and prediction of disease, and veterinarians are increasingly using a variety of new digital solutions to empower them in the workplace and improve their productivity. The growing ‘millenialization’ of pet ownership has resulted in a demand for digital solutions that directly connect the pet owner with the clinic. With 30% of pet owners not currently visiting clinics, practitioners are being forced to adopt solutions that are designed to improve the pet-owner/vet relationship and tackle the longstanding issue of compliance.

At the Digital Veterinary Summit, we bring together 150+ executives from across the animal health and veterinary industry, to examine the sector’s digital trends and dynamics, and showcase the industry’s most exciting emerging technologies. 

This is a companion animal focused event showcasing technology innovation, platforms and services for pet owners and the latest digital solutions for veterinary practice.
