Your questions answered

How do I access the Conference Online?

In the week before the Conference, you will be emailed with your personal login details for the Conference Space. The link to each presentation will be available through the Conference Space 5 minutes before the presentation is due to start. Recordings of each day’s presentations will be uploaded within the next two working days, and these will be available on the Conference Space for you to access for 3 months, until 31st December 2021. This means that if you miss any live talks, you will be able to catch up later.

Once logged in to the Conference Space, you will also be able to talk to other delegates in the Discussion forum, as well as access exclusive content and offers in your Virtual Conference Bag.

Why is the 2021 OV Conference held online?

The decision to move this year’s event online again was made as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The OV Conference is an important event in the calendar for Official Veterinarians, and we recognise that it is vital for us to adapt in order to help you to continue learning and gaining CPD safely. There was extremely positive feedback from speakers, sponsors and delegates alike from the OV Conference Online 2020 event and we are confident that this year will be just as successful, enjoyable and informative.

How many CPD hours am I able to claim?

You can claim 18 hours of CPD from attendance at the whole OV Conference Online (all lectures). Those who purchase recordings after the event will be able to claim 18 hours of CPD by watching all of the recorded presentations.

Do I have to be an OV to attend the Conference or purchase recordings?

No, tickets and recordings are available for anyone with an interest to purchase.

I am a student. Can I attend the OV Conference Online?

Yes. If you are a student and would like to book a place, please contact us. Please note that tickets purchased using the student discount code will only provide access to the live event and recordings during the week of the conference (28th September – 30 September 2021).

Will I get the chance to network with colleagues and speakers?

Yes – you can use the Discussion Forum on the Conference Space to network with speakers and other delegates.

How do I buy the recordings?

You can buy recordings online through this website after the event has finished or email us at ov.conference@improveinternational.com, or phone us on 01793 759159.

What will be included if I purchase the recordings?

Those who purchase the full 3 days of recordings will have access to:

  • all recorded sessions

What if I miss a live presentation?

If you miss a presentation during the week, don’t worry! All of the live presentations will be recorded and available to view on demand within the next two working days. Full Conference ticket holders will have access to all of the recordings, and Equine ticket holders will have access to all recordings from the equine stream. You can access recordings by logging in to the Conference Space using your personal log in details.

Where will I find the CPD certificates for the presentations I have attended?

You can claim separate Digital CPD Certificates for each day and workshop that you attended, or for each day of recordings that you have watched. You will be able to access these after completing short feedback questionnaires on the Conference platform. Once certificates are made available, you may download or print them as you wish.

You can view all of your certificates on your online profile by clicking on your name in the top right of the Conference platform, then going to ‘My certificates’ under ‘Miscellaneous’.

Is there a discount for group or multiple bookings?

Yes, we have corporate and multiple bookings discounts available. Please contact us for more information.

Will I get a delegate bag? If so, what will be included?
