The North American Veterinary Community announced that their annual Veterinary & Medicine Expo will be a hybrid event. The conference has also been moved from January 2021 to June 2021, due to travel bans and other COVID-19-related restrictions.

The North American Veterinary Community, NAVC, recently announced that its Veterinary Medicine & Expo (VMX) will be a hybrid event.

The conference, which will now be held June 5 to 9, 2021, offers attendees the unique opportunity to participate in-person in Orlando, Florida, or virtually.

“VMX is an event that is at its best when the entire veterinary community can participate. While we have received a very positive response from our community, most of whom plan to attend our live event in Orlando, we have also heard from those who want to attend but cannot because of ongoing travel restrictions,” says NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill, in a organizational press release​.

“NAVC is committed to hosting an exceptional event. Taking into consideration all of the interests and perspectives of our community, we feel we can deliver best when times allow for more in-person interaction and engagement.”

NAVC also emphasizes that it is committed to attendees’ safety and will adhere to CDC’s safety guidelines and protocols including: enforcing social distancing, requiring everyone to wear masks, following one-way traffic within the conference center, cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and more.
