Partnership between Brief Media and CloserStill Media brings new model of conference to underserved markets
Brief Media, leading publisher of veterinary reference brands Clinician’s Brief, Veterinary Team Brief, and Plumb’s Veterinary Drugs—and CloserStill Media—organizers of Europe’s biggest veterinary conference, London Vet Show—are proud to announce the launch of the next major conference for the veterinary community: New York Vet
Coming to the Javits Center in New York, New York, on November 9-10, 2017, New York Vet will offer a comprehensive CE program designed specifically for busy practicing veterinarians. The conference will also showcase the best of veterinary marketplaces in a lively exhibit hall that serves as the epicenter of the event.
The joint venture between Brief Media and CloserStill Media results in a conference that breaks the mold of existing, long-form conferences that may require veterinary professionals to be out of the hospital for extended periods.
Brief Media Founder and CEO Elizabeth Green explains, “All of our brands at Brief Media have been developed with the purpose of providing highly practical content that can be consumed in minimal time. No exception to this principle, this event now brings unique new formats of immediately applicable clinical and business information in a live event.”
Green also notes that “the collaboration with CloserStill Media, a company well-known for their exceptional veterinary events, is an obvious choice to expand our highly regarded content into a live experience.”
New York Vet will adopt a format proven to be successful in Europe—that of CloserStill Media’s award-winning veterinary conferences operating in London, Paris, and Cologne. Offering high-quality, low-cost CE opportunities that include multiple tracks of sessions and workshops, this format gives attendees the opportunity to engage with leading visionaries in small animal medicine—all for a reasonable price.
Rob Chapman, head of the veterinary portfolio for CloserStill Media, comments: “This approach has been truly transformative in other countries. It appeals to the new demographic of veterinarians. It has allowed us to create truly dynamic and exciting events that provide veterinarians with valuable and practical learning and also provides exhibitors with a unique sales opportunity.”
New York Vet Event Director Stephen Knowles adds, “CloserStill Media and Brief Media are delighted to be bringing Europe’s largest vet event to the world’s largest veterinary market. The Northeast American region is under-served, and with vets facing significant changes to CE requirements, New York Vet solves a real and growing need for veterinarians and suppliers.”
