RVC London 2017

The inaugural HorseTech Conference was hosted by The Royal Veterinary College on Wednesday the 18th October 2017 at their historic Central London Campus (the site of the autopsy of the legendary Eclipse Racehorse in 1792 that established the College & started the Veterinary Profession in the English Language).
