For the first time ever, you’ll have that opportunity at AVMA Convention 2016, where we’ll be premiering AVMA’s Vet Clinic Live!™ , a state-of-the-art veterinary facility built right on the floor of our exhibit hall.

As an attendee at this August’s Convention, you’ll be able to walk through this one-of-a-kind, interactive facility, and see new products and services demonstrated in a real veterinary setting, similar to your own clinic. Hand-selected vendors will showcase their newest and most transformative offerings for improving patient care and treatment.

You’ll also be able to watch live-action demonstrations presented by veterinary students, who competed in teams to develop true-to-life case scenarios especially for this occasion. A group of volunteer veterinarians is judging the student entries now, choosing the groups of students with the most interesting, engaging and relevant scenarios to present before their future employers and colleagues.

All in all, AVMA’s Vet Clinic Live!™ will cover 4,000 square feet of the exhibit floor, and will have discrete areas for dog and cat exams, surgery, therapy, dentistry, reception, lab facilities, X-ray, retail, boarding, grooming, and more. The floor plan shown here is subject to change, but should give you a good idea of the scope of the exhibit.

VetClinicLive-447x280As for the kinds of products and services you can expect to see, here’s a small sampling of what will be on display:

  • Mobile apps
  • Ultrasound machines
  • Microscopes
  • Chemistry analyzers
  • Blood pressure monitors
  • Exam room tables
  • X-ray equipment
  • Practice management software

This is an educational experience unlike any offered at other veterinary conferences. And it’s in addition to – not instead of – the other great exhibits you’ve come to count on in the exhibit hall. Convention attendees will have access to some 300 exhibitors in 50,000 square feet of exhibit space, plus the opportunity to earn up to 2 CE credit hours as you're going through the exhibit hall. (Check with your state licensing board to ensure that exhibit hall credits are accepted in your state.)

AVMA Convention 2016 will take place in San Antonio from August 5 – 9, and pre-convention pricing is in effect until July 1. Learn more about AVMA’s Vet Clinic Live!™, the other exhibit hall offerings, and the extensive CE opportunities available, and make your plans to join us in San Antonio.
