Considered a national convention by many industry suppliers, the MVC draws more than 6,000 veterinary professionals from across the U.S. and Canada—and even overseas—each year. If that’s not enough to convince you to participate, here are five more reasons why you need to be at the MVC in 2017.
Big conference, small price tag.
MVC is comparable to similar-sized conventions but is much more budget-friendly in terms of booth rental space fees, registration rates and travel-related expenses.
Our attendeees come back—year after year.
And they bring their friends! More than 91 percent of 2016 attendees said they’d recommend the MVC to a colleague, and 91 percent said they planned to come back next year.
MVC rewards loyal friends.
As a thank-you for their continued support, returning exhibitors receive priority in selecting their booths—and new exhibitors and sponsors quickly earn points the more they participate.
MVC attendees love the Exhibit Hall.
Year after year, attendees rate the Exhibit Hall as one of the most important aspects of the MVC. In addition, they enjoy three hours of designated Exhibit Hall-only time each day, as well as incentives for exploring booths.
MVC gets rave reviews.
In 2016, more than 99 percent of attendees rated the MVC as excellent, very good or good. Of those who attend other conferences, 88 percent ranked the MVC as equal to or greater than other similar conventions.
For more than 125 years, the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association has served its membership and the public at large by promoting the ideals of veterinary medicine, fostering relationships among veterinarians and their communities, and increasing awareness of issues surrounding veterinary medicine.
The OVMA is a trusted source of information that reflects scientific knowledge and the collective wisdom of more than 2,400 veterinary professionals. OVMA values and recognizes the trust its members place in their professional organization, as well as the important role we serve in providing the public with accurate, balanced resources on issues of public health and animal care and well-being.
