Would you like to meet up with colleagues online, enjoy some great music, showcase your pets, and help set a world record?

Join the rest of our AVMA community on July 29 as we try to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD® for the world’s largest virtual pet party – while viewing a live concert featuring the music of Prince! The party is the kickoff event for AVMA Virtual Convention, and all AVMA members are invited to attend free of charge. The event is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim.

Here’s what we’ve got planned:

  • Music by Prince tribute band Marshall Charloff and the Purple Xperience, streamed live from the historic First Avenue Club in Minneapolis, home of the film "Purple Rain" 
  • Sharing of stories about Prince from those who knew him
  • Pets and people coming together in celebration of our veterinary community
  • Monitoring by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® as we attempt to set a new record for the largest virtual pet party ever held

We’ve dubbed the party “Kickoff to Convention: Behind the ‘MEOW’-sic,” and it all starts at noon Central Time on Thursday, July 29. It’s one of AVMA’s member appreciation activities – free to all members and Convention attendees to celebrate our community and all of our accomplishments together.

Don't miss your chance to be a part of history. Register now to secure your free spot.


Use registration code MEOW21.

This event is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim.
