General Information


The exhibit space will be in the Blue Prefunction area.  AAVMC will maintain a registration/information booth onsite throughout the conference to assist you with set-up, exhibition, and tear-down. 


The Annual Conference opens with an award luncheon at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 10. Attendance is expect to be between 250 and 300 people, primarily deans, associate deans (academic affairs, research, admissions, student affairs, etc.), department heads and chairs, veterinary teaching hospital directors, animal care & welfare directors, and high-ranking staff in admissions, business offices, and more. The final session occurs Sunday morning, ending at 12:00 p.m.


The exhibit space is the carpeted public area of the hotel, outside the plenary sessions and workshops to ensure high traffic.


Standard exhibit space is defined as a 6' long draped table, two chairs, and a table tent with your organization's name on it. No side or rear draping is included.


Each registration includes:

  • Two (2) exhibitor badges per table which entitles the bearer to the food and beverage provided throughout the conference.
  • Company name listed in conference program.
  • List of attendees registered for the conference (no emails).
  • Conference program
  • Height and depth of the exhibit space is limited. If you have space questions or special needs, contact Andrew Zoeller at 202.371.9195, ext. 110, or via email at
