...where the first ever Vet Show was launched in 2009. CloserStill 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 Organisers’ (AEO) 2010 Best Launch Exhibition Award. From there, we knew we had created something groundbreaking for the veterinary community.
CloserStill Media launched France Vet soon after and modeled it after the London Vet Show, attracting 1,682 delegates and 100+ exhibitors
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, CloserStill Media has acquired MVM in the US, leading the way to Wild West Vet, Chicago Vet, and launched Singapore Vet. The first BVA Live took place in 2022, at the Birmingham NEC, in collaboration with the British Veterinary Association.
