where the first ever Vet Show was launched in 2009. Closer Still Media is the backbone of all vet shows, and we were inspired to provide a platform for the vets that didn’t normally get a chance to speak out about unique topics and share their stories.
The London Vet Show was a success and won The Association of Event Organizers’ (AEO) 2010 Best Launch Exhibition Award. From there, we knew we had created something groundbreaking for the veterinary community.
With such positive results from two shows, it was time to bring Vet Shows to the US and beyond. In 2016, we launched Deutsche Vet and New York Vet, both following the same model as the London Vet Show and France Vet.
Both first editions of these shows took place in 2017 and both delivered over 100 exhibitors and over 2,000 delegates.
Since then, Closer Still Media has acquired MVM in the US, leading the way to Wild West Vet, Chicago Vet, and launched Singapore Vet. The first Austin Vet will take place in 2022, as well as BVA Live at the Birmingham NEC, in collaboration with the British Veterinary Association.
Members of our veterinary community soon became essential workers and our team was required to work remotely from home. As a result, we were driven to think of alternative ways to pivot the way we operate and deliver education in a virtual manner, so we could continue to serve our veterinary community. With our New York office physically apart, we came together virtually to collaborate and continue the magic that is Vet Shows US.
It was truly a great show, everything you want for a pet, from food, nutrients, medical coverage insurance and so much more.
Many panels and great speakers educating the Veterinarian doctors and general public in attendance. Hundreds of people were in attendance. Truly was a great conference and exhibit hall and I learned so much, being owner of a pet cat Called Hendrix, who I adopted from ASPCA.
