It will be the first time the event has been held at the London venue, its Jarvis Hall accommodating the main meeting for 200 delegates, followed by lunch in the Florence Hall.

The AGM will see the appointment of new members of RCVS Council and the Veterinary Nurses Council and is also an opportunity for members to ask questions.

Awards including the Queen’s Medal, Honorary Associateships, and veterinary nursing diplomas will be handed out by outgoing president Dr Bradley Viner, who will also give an address reflecting their year of tenure.

An RCVS spokesperson said: "We were very impressed with the facilities on offer, particularly the light and airy ambience of Jarvis Hall, and it more than fulfilled all our needs for the occasion in terms of catering and space."

RIBA Venues head of venues Stephanie Ellrott added: "We are delighted to welcome the RCVS for the very first time for what is a key date in its events calendar."
