Booth Inclusions

ACVO's booths are considered 'table top'. Each booth space is smaller than a typically 10x10 space, to accommodate more vendors in smaller facilities. An exhibit booth is no wider than 8' and no deeper than 6', encroachment is NOT allowed and those in violation will be asked to dismantle their displays. A 'table-top' booth includes attendance for two exhibitors per table purchased, a 6' table, two chairs and a small trash can for each booth purchased. Tables, pipe and drape, carpet and additional chairs do not need to be purchased. Vacuuming is provided by the hotel at no additional fee to the vendor. Additional fees may include power, internet capability, shipping/receiving (hotel box handling fee), additional exhibitors for a name badge and access to the exhibit hall and will be arranged directly through a third party vendor.


Please note that exhibit booths typically sell out by early May annually. Be sure to register early! Sorry, 2017 is sold out.


Even during these financially trying times, the ACVO conference has continued to maintain and even increase attendance numbers. Over the last several years the meeting has increased to average 750-850 registered attendees. With an additional 100 technicians (VOTS), 100 vendors and 50 registered guests, the conference typically hosts 850-900 people. (The veterinarian attendees are decision makers and many buy for their own clinics.)


When registering, please take a look at our sponsorship opportunities. All levels are available, most levels receive generous recognition both pre-conference and onsite. Priority placement is given to prior sponsors and those who commit at time of registration.

Please review our new sponsorship policy for 2017 which gives priority placement to sponsors on the exhibit floor.
