What Else Makes this Conference Different?

Intimate: Here You Matter.

By keeping the conference limited to 150 slightly scandalous, fun-lovin' attendees, you are guaranteed to create relationships and connections that will support you long after the conference is over.

Togetherness.

We believe in bringing people together. We do this by giving exhibitors and sponsors opportunities to engage with attendees in fun, team building exercises. In addition, all sessions are designed to provide value and education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians because we are a TEAM. Muah.

Attendee Guides.

While there will be more attendees this year than last year, we wanted to keep the intimate, connected feel because that was overwhelmingly one of the favorite things our attendees enjoy. Also, we want to take care of our CON newbies.

Have More Questions? 

Of course you do...this shit is wacky. Here are some FAQs.

Is this CON REALLY RACE Approved?
HELL YEAH IT IS! We like to joke a lot but one thing we are serious about is bringing you high quality, RACE approved CE. So yeah, we jump through all the hoops, go before the high council, uh, we mean RACE committee, pay with the blood of a firstborn, etc. Our education is RACE approved (this year's approval is still pending because it's early but we are on it!)

When do the shenanigans begin? I mean, what's the schedule?
Friday
Registration is available from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Game night and other assorted tomfoolery Friday night 6-8 p.m. Costumes highly recommended, just short of mandated.

Saturday 
Breakfast 7 a.m.

Lectures and unannounced skylarking from 8-5 (food included).

Sunday
Breakfast 7 a.m.
Lectures and assorted hijinks 8-1:30 (food include).

Is the hotel dog friendly?
Unfortunately this year's hotel only allows service animals. Boo.

Do I have to wear a costume to game night?
Absolutely not! But you may want to bring one, just in case, for when you see that most everybody else is. (BTW there is a costume contest where you can win cool stuff, and the CON organizers will be wearing costumes, so you know, you really don't want to be left out.)

Is this conference and hotel kid friendly?
Kids are welcome at the hotel, however, game night is a bit, uh, R rated, so that's out, and even though we love kids (and we all have them and have definitely kept that crotch fruit in a kennel at work) we ask that they are not brought to sessions to honor everybody's learning environment. 

Can I bring a non-veterinary guest to social events?
Heck yeah you can! In fact, guests had some of the most fun at our game night last year because, let's face it, vet people are hysterically funny. It is $49 for guests for game night and the same price for the Saturday night excursion (coming soon!) When you are registering, just add 'guest ticket options' to your cart.
