2021 CVMA Convention — July 22–25 - Times are Changing, and so is the CVMA Convention

December 22, 2020

The CVMA invites you and your veterinary team to join your colleagues in the inaugural hybrid Convention for the veterinary profession. Canada’s only national, multi-species veterinary Convention is taking place in Calgary, Alberta from July 22 to 25, 2021.

The CVMA Professional Development Committee has developed new program features, new registration packages, and for the first time will be offering a virtual experience for attendees to participate online from the comfort of their home or office. Are you zoom-fatigued and miss connecting with your colleagues in-person? Onsite registration packages include full and daily options, access to both in-person continuing education, plus the continuing education hosted on our virtual platform, plus access to the exhibit hall. Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to the CVMA. As such, we are continuously in communication with our partners and venues in Calgary to ensure we implement the necessary steps to give you peace of mind. We have compiled links with the latest COVID-19 resources.

Do you still want to experience the CVMA Convention but are unable due to travel restrictions or personal preferences — the CVMA has been working diligently with partners to bring you the best virtual experience where you can obtain your continuing education, visit our virtual exhibit hall, and connect with your peers all from the comfort of your home or office. You will have access to all continuing education sessions, plus have access to the virtual exhibit hall with your registration package.

The CVMA is excited to offer special reduced rates to commemorate this inaugural event for veterinarians, a savings of 30% for the 2021 CVMA Convention. All attendees will have access to the virtual CVMA social evening, plus access to all continuing education hosted on the virtual platform until December 31, 2021 regardless of which registration package you choose.

In addition to offering new registration packages, and in recognition of the times, the CVMA has revised our cancellation policy to reduce your risk in registering early by extending cancellation dates along with full refunds. Please visit the Convention website to review our updated cancellation policy. Stay up-to-date with the latest event details by downloading our Convention app or view it online.

Visit the CVMA website to register before the early bird deadline of April 30, 2021 to receive the discounted registration fees. We look forward to seeing you whether in-person or virtually at the 2021 CVMA Convention.
