Top 5 reasons to attend the 2016 MVC:
1. The CE & Wet Labs
As one of the largest veterinary conferences in the U.S., the MVC is one of the best places to fulfill your CE requirements. Attendees can take advantage of nearly 400 hours of education covering a wide range of topics. In addition to lectures, the MVC also offers hands-on labs, lunch programs and workshops. There is something for everyone!
For Ohio veterinarians and technicians, each hour of class time is approved for one hour of CE by the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board. Attending the full Conference (6 sessions per day on all 4 days) will earn attendees 24 total hours of CE.
2. The Speakers
The MVC brings together dozens of nationally and internationally renowned expert speakers, who provide the most current, cutting-edge information from the veterinary world. Recognized names — including Temple Grandin, Ed Brieitschwerdt, Ernie Ward, Harold Davis, Charlotte Lacroix and Kate Hurley — have been included on the MVC's speaker roster over the years, as well as a variety of local veterinary experts and OVMA Members.
3. The Exhibit Hall
Year after year, attendees rank the Exhibit Hall as one of the most important aspects of the Conference. With 150+ exhibitors offering product demos, complimentary samples, invaluable services and more, you're sure to find dozens of useful ideas and technology for your clinic.
4. The Networking Opportunities
At the MVC, it's not just about working hard—it's also about having fun! As part of the Conference, attendees are invited to a variety of social and networking events. For instance, you can enjoy a free meal and learn about a hot topic from a well-known keynote speaker at MVC Sunday Lunch. There are even networking and social opportunities for students, too: the Student Appreciation Reception, Connection Corner networking luncheon, and the Veterinary Exploration Conference. And, if you'd like to get out and explore Columbus, there's so much to do that you definitely won't be bored!
5. The Value
Year after year, attendees note on Conference evalutions that one of the best parts of the MVC is its value. The MVC offers an exceptional amount of high-quality education for registration fees far below other similar conferences.
