The Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures continues to be the biggest week of equine veterinary continuing education in the Southern Hemisphere. This year’s conference is shaping up to be just as successful with pre-conference ISELP and nerve block workshops, high quality lectures throughout the week and an equine veterinary nurses’ conference on Thursday.  We have assembled a range of world-class speakers to take an in-depth look at all that you need to know in equine respiratory and reproduction, and so much more.  

In celebration of 50 years of EVA the social events will be a week-long celebration, and provide the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues.
