New York Vet Show Launches Sustainability Initiative for 2023 Show

New York Vet Show Launches Sustainability Initiative for 2023 Show

NEW YORK, September 21, 2023 - We're taking some exciting steps to reduce our emissions at the 2023 New York Vet Show. How, you ask? Well, we're ditching the carpet on the show floor and replacing it with a clean, sleek surface. Plus, we're streamlining our resources by consolidating from show dailies to one fabulous Show Guide. Everything you need in one handy place! And wait for it...we're saying goodbye to lunch and drink vouchers and embracing the future with digital badge scans. It's quick, convenient, and totally contactless. Can you feel the eco-friendly excitement?

Now, hold onto your stethoscopes because here's the best part: all of these changes will help us reduce our CO2 emissions by a whopping 4 tons!

What does reducing 4 tons of C02 emissions do?

  • Prevents the release of air pollutants equivalent to what a car would emit over 20,000 miles of driving. That means cleaner air for our communities and healthier environments for the animals we care for.
  • Improved pet health, with a decrease in respiratory issues, like asthma, for approximately 400 dogs or cats. Together, we're creating a healthier world for our furry friends.
  • 4 tons of carbon emissions represent the carbon sequestered by around 100 mature trees in just one year. By reducing our emissions, we're doing our part to preserve these precious forests, which are vital for biodiversity and clean air.

The Northeast’s premier veterinary conference, New York Vet Show, is set to be hosted at the esteemed Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, on November 8-9, 2023. With 16 hours of continuing education, networking with industry leaders, and exclusive access to the latest advancements in veterinary medicine, attendees are in for a remarkable event. Mark your calendars for November 8-9! Join us on this sustainability journey and let's make a positive difference together!

Registration for the New York Vet Show is open, and we encourage attendees to register by September 29 to benefit from discounted rates. For more information about the event, including registration details and the complete list of speaker topics, please visit:
