BEVA Congratulates Congress Exhibitors

Two outstanding exhibitors at this year’s British Equine Veterinary Association Congress (13 -16 September 2017) were given special awards for their creative use of stand space.


BEVA Council Members Chris Johannson and Meredith Smith chose Chanelle Vet UK and APB Mobile Installation as the winners of the competition, which was sponsored by Veterinary Practice.

Chanelle Vet UK won the Veterinary Practice Best Large Stand Award for their fresh apple-theme promoting their new apple-flavoured anti-inflammatory product.

Chanelle Vet UK’s Marketing Manager Michaela Cassidy said: “Chanelle Vet UK are experiencing an exciting period of growth and BEVA Congress is an important event in our calendar every year. This week we are focusing on the promotion of our new apple-flavoured anti-inflammatory product, which has made it easy to create a fresh, fruity stand theme. We are thrilled to have received this award and equally thrilled with the interest we are receiving in our exciting new product.”

APB Mobile Installations, who specialise in bespoke vehicle installations, won the Veterinary Practice Best Shell Scheme Stand Award for their dramatic use of space with Toyota Hilux fully fitted out with drawers and a sliding platform ambulatory veterinary use.

Alan Bacon, Managing Director of APB Mobile Installations said: “It’s our first visit to BEVA and we are delighted with the response we are getting to our stand. We are unique in that there are no other stands displaying anything similar and it’s the icing on the cake of what has been a great Congress for us so far, to have won best stand award.”

The judges identified exhibits showing a bold and stylish visual presence that is a frontline expression of their client’s corporate message, their core brand values and their ethos.

Meredith Smith, one of the Judges, said: “Both Chanelle Vet UK and APB Mobile Installations showed outstanding use of space, to generate effective brand experiences that reach, entertain and inform delegates, while delivering key product messages. We were also very impressed with the Equine Veterinary Journal Bookshop for their striking use of bookcase wallpaper.”
