5 ways to get the most out of the 2017 FASAVA Congress

Reach out in advance

The FASAVA Congress is a unique opportunity to meet world-leading experts from a range of veterinary specialties. Many delegates will be travelling to the Gold Coast for the first time, so reach out to anyone you’d like to meet in advance. Download the 2017 FASAVA Congress app to schedule sessions and share events.

Plan ahead

Ask yourself what you want to get out of the conference. Do you want to hear from experts in your field? Are you looking to take on a new specialty? Do you want to make international connections? Decide which sessions to attend based on these objectives. If you have colleagues attending, attend different sessions and swap notes to maximise your time.

Be flexible

At times it might be advantageous to skip a planned session if it means attending a different session with someone you’d like to get to know better. The FASAVA Congress also features a rich social program, including a Meet and Greet dinner, Gala Awards dinner, and Australiana night. These events are designed for networking, so don’t be afraid to mingle.

Attend a masterclass

These are a great way to meet people because they don’t compete with the rest of the program and bring together delegates with similar interests. A one- and two-day endoscopy masterclass and a dental symposium have been confirmed.

Connect on social media

If there’s anyone you didn’t get a chance to speak with, follow up via Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Make a note of follow-up questions during sessions and use these as a jumping-off point to start a post-conference conversation and stay in touch.

The 2017 FASAVA Congress is being held on the Gold Coast from 11 – 14 August.
