US Vet Shows Launches Registration for Wild West Vet Show and Announces Partnership with Brief Media for the Wild West Vet Clinical Program

CloserStill Media, organizer of US Vet Shows, has partnered with Brief Media, creator of key veterinary brands Clinician’s Brief and Plumb’s™, as the official clinical education partner for Wild West Vet Show taking place in Reno, Nevada, October 18-21, 2023. Registration is now open for this exciting event, with leading content to offer attendees.

Brief Media has supplied the veterinary community with concise, practical clinical information, expert guidance, and trusted diagnostic and treatment information since 2002. Clinician’s Brief is the #1 most essential publication for small animal veterinarians and, for decades, has been providing veterinary professionals with the information they need to help their patients and practices thrive.

“We are committed to providing the veterinary community with resources that help guide clinical decision-making,” said Christie Bardo, President of Brief Media. “This is an opportunity to further our work in delivering exceptional content and useful tools to members of the veterinary industry.”

Attendees can expect a schedule packed with exciting sessions and workshops in multiple tracks. In just three and a half days, attendees can earn up to 36 CE credits all while meeting with multiple suppliers and connecting with peers.

April Walsh, Vice President of US Vet and New Ventures shared, "Attendees will have the chance to learn from preeminent presenters speaking on trending topics and return to their practices with relevant skills and knowledge that they can implement immediately. The clinical program designed with Brief Media will be intentionally energizing and practical.”

Veterinary professionals looking for cutting-edge technology and products to bring back to their practice will find everything they are looking for on the show floor. Additionally, exhibitors are sure to benefit by connecting with the audience and will leave Wild West Vet Show with new leads and connections.

Joe Kowalsky, Event Director at US Vet Shows, commented, “Wild West Vet is the place to be for high-quality CE, exhibitors, and connections. We’re bringing you the best that the veterinary community has to offer in an efficient format catered to the busy veterinary professional.”

Wild West Vet will take place at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino, a four-star resort with onsite parking located just ten minutes from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. When attendees are not busy learning and networking, they can enjoy a treatment at the spa, take a dip in the pool, or try their luck in the casino just steps away from the show floor. Both attendees and exhibitors can take advantage of discounted hotel rates so they can step outside their rooms and right onto the show floor with ease.

This is a can’t-miss event for veterinary professionals and suppliers alike.
