NAVC and UBM will deliver an expanded conference experience in San Diego that includes veterinary professionals, pet retailers and pet owners
Orlando, FL, February 3 — The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) is excited to announce a strategic alliance with UBM Animal Care that will create a new conference experience in December 2018-Vet+Pet West, a paradigm-shifting three-pronged convention and expo hosted in San Diego. Vet+Pet West will address the needs of three segments of the animal care market: veterinary professionals, retailers and engaged pet parents.
“Out in the world, veterinary professionals, retailers and pet owners are clearly all playing key roles in the continuum of pet care,” says NAVC CEO Thomas Bohn, CAE. “We’re excited to bring a game-changing event to the market that reflects that reality and gives all the stakeholders opportunities to improve the care pets receive and enhance the exchange of information about the innovative products and solutions available.”
Fetch, an existing dvm360 conference, will run December 13-16, 2018, providing high-quality, RACE-approved CE for veterinary professionals. The event will feature a robust exhibit hall with vendors specifically focused on veterinary practices, showcasing critical products and services for animal care professionals.
Pounce, the retail pet expo, will run December 14-16, 2018, and will provide opportunities for pet retailers (and veterinary professionals who offer retail products in their practices) to see new technologies and innovative products that enhance pets’ health and well-being. They’ll also be invited to participate in high-engagement education that focuses precisely on the issues keeping pet retailers up at night.
