GADMC2023 Success!

GADMC2023 was a great success with post-session evaluations consistently rating GADMC as excellent and that they would definitely recommend the conference to others.

Thanks to the support of our sponsors Four Paws International, American Veterinary Medical Foundation, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Humane Society International, TLAER and the International Public Safety Qualifications Authority, the global event was free to present, attend and view. With such a diverse range of speakers, we also successfully trialed multi-lingual closed captions using the Zoom platform to make the conference even more accessible.

Recordings are now being edited and should be available in the next few weeks.
