When will I get my login?

When registering please keep in mind that access to the VetFest website is not instantaneous. On the nights VetFest has sessions running staff will be on standby to assist any late registrants with quick access, however we ask in advance for your patience as depending on volume it may take up to 30 minutes to link you to the live VetFest site.

Outside of the above times when VetFest is running, you will receive your login details for the virtual conference platform (hosted on Delegate Connect) within 48hrs (Monday - Friday), along with information on how the conference will work and the program.

If you don’t see your login email after 48hrs please try adding to your email accounts accept/white list and wait a few minutes, as your email system might be blocking it completely. Please contact for further assistance.

Can I still register after the live conference finished?

Yes! You can still purchase a ticket which gives you unrestricted access to watching any of the recorded lectures on-demand for 6 months from July, until midnight Sunday 28 November 2021.

What are the payment options, and can I be invoiced? 

All payments must be made via credit card during the registration process. If you have further questions, please contact

How does VetFest work? Do I need to download any special software?

VetFest 2021 recorded lectures are viewable on most common internet browsers that you use regularly. No additional software is required to view, and you are not required to download any video-conferencing software.

How do the VetEd points work? 

Each attendee can earn up to 61.5 structured* VetEd points (1 hour = 1 CPD Point) for VetFest 2021. Points can be earned by viewing talks live from Tuesday 11 May – Thursday 27 May or on-demand until midnight Sunday 28 November 2021.

AVA members will have their points uploaded automatically to their CPD records at the end of each month until the end of November. Members can access their CPD records via the “My AVA Account” on the AVA website

CPD points earned are based on your logins to the site and viewing hours for both live and on demand sessions. For further information on the AVA and how we track VetEd points for members please click here

For any non-AVA members requiring a “Certificate of Attendance” to validate their CPD with the Veterinary Registration Board we can produce this on request once VetFest on-demand has completed in November 2021. 

Can I access the recording talks after the 6 month period?  

Recorded lectures will not be viewable after the 6 month period, but conference proceedings will be available on the AVA Library for all members to access.  

Are all of the talks recorded?

A majority of the speakers will be speaking live on the night and that presentation will be available on demand for 6 months for viewing later. Please note on-demand sessions will be uploaded within 48hrs of the live sessions taking place. 
Please note: Plenaries will not be recorded, unless advised, and are only available to watch on the night. All talks by Kate Christie (listed below) will not be recorded and available on-demand.
