This year brought us more dvm360 conferences than ever before including 3 new locations for our Directions in Veterinary Medicine (DIVM) symposiums in Arlington, Virginia; Miami, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee. The dvm360 editorial team also traveled to our regular round of Fetch conferences in Charlotte, North Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Atlantic City, New Jersey; and for the first time in Long Beach, California.

Our Fetch conferences

The dvm360 team was pleased to bring back our Fetch conferences in 2023, happening throughout the country. Charlotte, North Carolina, was our first stop of 2023 in March, and it featured an array of clinical and business topics and even included a women’s panel discussion to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Our second stop was Kansas City, Missouri, one of our biggest Fetch conferences featuring all our usual specialty topics. While in Kansas City, the dvm360 team hosted the third annual Veterinary Heroes gala to celebrate all the incredible winners. Our annual Hospital Design Competition winners were also honored during a special lunch ceremony. One of our keynote speakers from Fetch Kansas City—Bob Murtaugh, DVM, MS, DACVIM, DACVECC—told dvm360, “Fetch conferences bring a level of excitement and energy that is unique in the conference realm.”

If you previously attended our veterinary conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, you may remember it as the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference, or ACVC for short. However, we recently rebranded to Fetch Coastal for consistency across all our Fetch conferences that offer 3 days of veterinary education.

Finally, our last Fetch stop was in Long Beach, California, for the first time in this city. One of our Long Beach keynote speakers, George Robinson III, DVM, MSPH, reflected on his time at the conference, stating, “I always left a Fetch meeting with turnkey information, stuff that I could use. That’s when I said, ‘Wow, this is a really noteworthy conference.’”

Our DIVM symposiums

Our DIVM symposiums are a 2-day, single-track conference with a targeted focus to allow attendees to get a deep dive into a specific veterinary specialty. Following the success of the first DIVM symposium in 2022, this year offered 3 new locations including Arlington, Virginia, focusing on emergency and critical care topics; Miami, Florida, focusing on pain management; and Nashville, Tennessee, focusing on oncology and nutrition topics.

“Our Fetch conferences and Directions in Veterinary Medicine events are excellent opportunities for veterinary professionals to soak in actionable insights from our brilliant speakers,” said Adam Christman, DVM, MBA. “While education is a large part of our events, the events are also about coming together with likeminded people from every niche in the industry to inspire one another.”
