What Others Have Said About The WVAC 2020 Congress

I would like to convey my sincere appreciation and great thanks to the Webinar Vet group for giving us this golden opportunity to attend these outstanding scientific lectures through WVAC 2020. Although, I’m continuously participating in lots of veterinary conferences, this is my first-time watching webinars. I never expected it would be so interesting, easily accessible and with many great benefits. All the lectures are recorded in an excellent way.

Abdalla Fadlalla Azrug Ahmed,

When I was perusing the different small animal streams for the original planned congress, I had realised it was going to be tough to decide what to do and what to miss out on! Having it online meant I could see everything! Great to be able to hit pause when needed or go back to listen again to information for further clarity. Would definitely recommend as covers a broad range of topics and there is plenty of it!

Lisa McIntosh, 
New Zealand

Thank you for such an incredible online educational experience! The program talks are fantastic, and I am looking forward to the additional access time following the live "festival" in which to explore the recorded sessions! And please also note that because of your online festival, I shall be able to attend enough live presentations to achieve nearly twice the CE hours that would have been possible at a physical conference! Again, I am most grateful to you for your hard work and high-quality webinars!
