Dates of Exhibition

The exhibit dates and schedule will be finalized in Spring 2018. See the Exhibitor Schedule below for the most up to date schedule.

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.

Limitations

Please note that exhibit booths typically sell out by early May annually. Be sure to register early!

Attendees

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.)

Sponsorship

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 as of 2017 which gives priority placement to sponsors on the exhibit floor.

Thank you for your continued support of the ACVO and the veterinary ophthalmology profession. Our goal with this event is to foster the symbiotic relationship between our corporate supporters and our veterinarians and consider your feedback annually to improve the program.
