Southwest Veterinary Symposium is a partnership of the Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas VMAs, as well as Oklahoma Veterinary Technician Association and Texas Association of Registered Veterinary Technicians to provide continuing education for veterinary professionals in the southwest region and the nation. Symposium profits are returned to the partner states.
The annual symposium is held each fall in the Southwest and includes continuing education, exhibits, interactive labs, and social activities. We serve DVMs, RVTs, hospital personnel, veterinary and technician students, and the suppliers who provide the products and services that support veterinary medicine.
Celebrating its 15th year, the Southwest Veterinary Symposium is the premier veterinary conference for profitable face-to-face interaction, networking, sales and professional development opportunities for exhibitors. Our annual four-day conference draws more than 3,500 veterinary industry professionals seeking high-quality continuing education and the latest advancements in veterinary products and services from industry leaders just like you!
