The #1 Veterinary Conference
For more than 86 years, the WVC Annual Conference has been among the most highly anticipated events in the veterinary community - and for good reason.
More than a conference, it has become an industry institution - a place where the best and brightest congregate for five days every year. It’s where the latest breakthroughs are announced, the most innovative techniques are shared, and lasting connections are made.
What’s more, it all takes place in a host city like no other, Las Vegas. With unmatched options for dining, entertainment, shopping and more, every minute spent outside the conference will be well worth the trip.
WVC remains dedicated to maintaining the conference’s focus on CE quality, value and professionalism.
We provide for your needs with a value that cannot be matched.
Conference registration automatically enrolls the registrant as an association member for the following year. Members vote for WVC officers and directors and are welcome at the annual business meeting held during conference week.
Enter the most comprehensive assembly of veterinary-related exhibitors in the world under one roof, located directly across from the scientific sessions. As you plan your trip to the Annual Western Veterinary Conference, do not forget to build into your schedule a visit or two to the Exhibit Hall. Stop by your favorites among more than 500 exhibiting companies with representatives ready to demonstrate their latest products. Many offer free samples! In addition, all offer information on the most advanced equipment, supplies, and services for your practice. Take full advantage of all three exhibit days to build your industry contacts, discover new sources, and learn what your professional organizations are accomplishing.
