Registration for AVMA Convention 2016 is now open! The 153rd annual convention, to take place in San Antonio from August 5 – 9, will bring thousands of veterinarians to the Alamo City for some of the best continuing education (CE) and to learn about the latest advances in veterinary medicine.
AVMA Convention 2016 offers extensive CE opportunities in all disciplines and practice types, and features an Exhibit Hall that will allow you to explore the cutting-edge products and services that will enhance your practice and your career. In addition, there will be a number of special events to help you and your family enjoy the convention to the fullest.
New to convention this year is a Meet-the-Experts Roundtable that will feature more than 20 roundtable discussions related to current topics in veterinary medicine. An exciting, one-of-a-kind addition to the Exhibit Hall is AVMA’s Vet Clinic Live!TM, a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that will serve as an interactive educational space for exhibitors to engage with attendees and showcase their products as they would be used in an actual clinic, along with live action scenarios based on case studies.
Convention attendees will soon be able to download the AVMA Convention app, which will enable you to plan your CE and events before you leave home, download session handouts, track your CE and receive your CE certificate, be updated with convention alerts so you’re always in the know and much more. New features to the app this year will include a messaging system that will allow you to network with other attendees, and a scavenger hunt that will allow you to earn badges related to education, convention exploration and quiz questions, and win prizes.
