Sophomore year of New York Vet exceeds expectations

TULSA, OKLAHOMA, November 15,'2018'More than 2600 attendees and 270 exhibitors gathered at the Javits Center in New York City on November 8 and 9 for the second year of New York Vet, a national, 2?day veterinary conference designed specifically for busy practicing'veterinarians.

New York Vet featured a comprehensive CE program, offering more than 75 hours of RACE?approved and NYSED?accredited CE curated by the veterinarians behind Clinician's Brief and Veterinary Team Brief. The program, an expansion of the event's first year, covered a variety of practical topics, from approaches to cognitive dysfunction to indication and use of appetite stimulants. In addition, the veterinary nursing theater, new for 2018, covered both clinical education and career guidance for today's rapidly changing veterinary industry. All sessions offered attendees high?quality education in energizing, interactive'formats.

"What a phenomenal 2 days this has been," said Elizabeth Green, Brief Media CEO and founder.'"We are thrilled by the overwhelming response and have been so encouraged by the community spirit and dedication displayed by our attendees, speakers, and partners who are striving for the betterment of the veterinary industry. We look forward to welcoming these leaders and learners back to New York next year, or even to Chicago or'Reno."

New York Vet is hosted by CloserStill Vet US, LLC, a joint venture between Brief Media'publisher of Clinician's Brief, Veterinary Team Brief, and Plumb's' Veterinary Drugs'and CloserStill Media'organizers of Europe's largest veterinary conference, London Vet Show. In 2018, a partnership with Modern Veterinary Media allowed CloserStill Vet US to expand its portfolio of events to include Chicago Vet (May 13 ' 16, 2019) and Wild West Vet (October'2019).

"Everyone at New York Vet is dedicated to supporting veterinary teams across the country by providing high-quality continuing education at a reasonable price, and this year's event really highlighted the best-in-show for our market," said Stephen Knowles, New York Vet event director. "Fantastic turnout and engagement from veterinary practice teams, outstanding speakers, great vendors, and a warm, community spirit made this a truly special event. We look forward to seeing everyone in New York for next year's event, if not before at one of our other Vet'Shows."

The event's innovative layout allowed for a continuous flow between the exhibition hall and sessions, creating a truly unique learning and networking'experience.

"I've been to [other conferences] year after year and it's just a lot of sitting, day after day. Here [the event] is only 2 days, and I got all of the CE I need," said Maija Curtis, DVM, an attendee at New York Vet 2018. "It's a really great event. I've already spoken with my husband about when we're coming next year, especially with the new'locations."

"[New York Vet was] by far our best show of the year. Loved the location and staff. Loved the happy hour. It's such a fun time,"'said Joseph Kasabuski, a sales representative for VetMatrix.'"What's not to love? It's New York City! We will without a doubt be back next'year."
