Thank You

Animex 2020 is now a wrap.

We'd like to say a really BIG thank you to all of our speakers who gave up their time to give a talk at Animex. It is sincerely appreciated. We'd also like to say thank you to our audience for helping to make Animex 2020 such a big success. We will be posting videos of the talks on our YouTube channel as soon as we get the clearance from our speaker's studios.

We'd also like to thank all our sponsors and in particular, our key partner, Tees Valley Combined Authority and the Tees Valley Mayor, without whose support we would not have been able to bring you Animex for free this year. Finally, a massive thank you to Teesside University, for hosting and supporting Animex for the last 20+ years!

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram to keep up to date on Animex 2021!
We look forward to seeing you all again in May, hopefully in person!
