Dates for the 2019 WVC Annual Conference will be Feb. 17-20 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“[Our] goal is to always respond to the needs of the profession and our participants,” said David Little, WVC CEO. “Additionally, we constantly strive to provide the best value and experience possible for those attending our events. Moving the WVC Annual Conference back to February means more reasonable hotel room rates and increased availability and less competition with other major conferences.”
In addition, WVC also will shorten the duration of the conference by one day. The event still will launch on Sunday morning but will finish at the end of the day on Wednesday. According to the organization, it will adjust educational programming times to ensure all conference participants will continue to have a full menu of high-quality and diverse learning opportunities and will have the ability to obtain all required annual CE hours at one event.
“We understand and are sensitive to the pressures on veterinary professionals, time being one of the most important and the one there never seems to be enough of,” said Tony Pease, DVM, WVC chief veterinary medical officer. “In order to provide maximum value to our participants, it means allowing them to get all of the continuing education they can and covering all of the topics important to them, all the while being considerate of their need to get back to their day job.”
WVC offers year-round, hands-on, educational programs at the Oquendo Center in Las Vegas. This year, WVC will host a Spring and Summer Veterinary Technician Symposium, a Women’s Veterinary Summit, a Recent Graduate Symposium, and Destination CE in Costa Rica. Visit wvc.org for more information.
