ECC Virtual Congress 2021

Wednesday 3 November to Saturday 6 November (GMT)

Welcome to ECC Virtual Congress 2021!

Last year, we took our annual ECC Congress online for the first time and welcomed over 1200 delegates from 37 different countries to enjoy our programme of 60 hours of leading ECC content.

This year, we’re back with more world-renowned speakers, enhanced networking opportunities and over 70 hours of industry-leading CPD available across eight themes – including our brand new non-clinical sessions focusing on administration, management, teamwork and effective client communication.

We are delighted to welcome back Chloe Hannigan of VetYogi, who’ll deliver yoga sessions tailored to the veterinary profession, plus numerous world-renowned wellness experts throughout the four days.

Whether you’re an experienced ECC surgeon or a newly qualified veterinary professional, stay at the forefront of your field with ECC Virtual Congress 2021 from 3-6 November 2021.

We’ll see you there!

  • Four days of live presentations, including lectures, discussion forums and debates, with over 70 hours of quality ECC CPD available
  • An inclusive learning experience for veterinary professionals, with content aimed at all levels
  • A library of pre-recorded content to enjoy at your leisure, with the ability to access all live and recorded content for up to 30 days after the event, meaning you don’t miss anything from our hugely diverse programme
