Trade Show Executive (TSE) honors the fastest-growing shows held in the United States during the previous year,” the company's website explains. “Fifty winners are selected based on the percentage of growth in each of the following categories: net square feet (nsf), number of exhibiting companies and number of attendees.”

CVC San Diego was a conference that grew in all three categories, one of two veterinary-specific shows to do so. “Two conferences for veterinarians seemed to be immune from the overall sluggish performance of events for people medicine,” the Trade Show Executive website states. “CVC San Diego, one of a three-conference series by UBM Life Sciences, … grew 1.8% to 17,000 nsf, but attendance shot up to 14.5% to 3,461.”

The other conference to grow in all three categories was the AVMA annual convention, which took place in Boston in 2016.

Fetch will take place this year in San Diego Dec. 7-10 with a new name, a new look and a reimagined educational experience for veterinarians.
