The second quarter of 2024 is upon us, and some of the biggest veterinary conferences of the year have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with webinars and journal article CE until next January. This year’s CE events are only getting started and Q2 promises to bring travel-friendly weather and unique educational opportunities for veterinary professionals. Here’s a list of exciting conferences taking place April through June.

Uncharted Veterinary Conference

April 18–20, 2024
Greenville, South Carolina

Uncharted is the brainchild of Dr. Andy Roark, one of America’s favorite veterinarians and industry thought leaders. Uncharted is a membership organization that caters to practice owners and managers and prides itself on thinking outside the box and solving real-world problems.

The Uncharted Veterinary Conference is open to Uncharted members and non-members and promises to be an intimate and interactive experience focused on group discussions in a “choose your own adventure” format rather than traditional lectures. Attendees of this year’s conference will also enjoy Greenville’s southern charm and renowned dining scene.

Fetch Nashville

May 17–18, 2024
Nashville, Tennessee

We all know and love DVM360’s Fetch conferences, which bring together the best and brightest veterinary minds and offer a diverse selection of interactive CE sessions for all veterinary practice and industry professionals. This year’s Fetch Nashville conference features more than 90 sessions for 14 maximum CE hours over a quick, two-day event. Conference attendees can also enjoy Music City’s electric atmosphere, interesting history, and abundant nightlife.


June 6–8, 2024
Minneapolis, Minnesota

The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) oversees six veterinary specialties and hosts a conference each year that dives into these various disciplines. This year’s session topics span cardiology, large animal internal medicine, neurology, nutrition, oncology, small animal internal medicine, business, leadership, communication, and more. The ACVIM Forum provides specialists with the opportunity to connect and present their latest research, and also welcomes other veterinary professionals to attend and learn from the best and brightest specialists.


June 15–16, 2024
Minneapolis, Minnesota

From the creators of VMX, NAVC HiVE conferences offer affordable, accessible CE that centers on professional and personal development for essential veterinary team members. While most conferences are designed for veterinarians, HiVE caters to the specific needs of non-veterinarian support staff. The conference offers two distinct tracks—one for veterinary technicians and nurses and another for veterinary practice managers. With registration starting at $99 and low hotel block rates, this event will attract big crowds and is one you can’t afford to miss.

AVMA Convention

June 21–25, 2024
Austin, Texas

This year’s AVMA Convention takes place in Austin, Texas, which boasts rich nightlife and live music galore. The conference offers more than 650 CE session hours in varying formats, including lectures, panel discussions, interactive labs, and hands-on workshops. The five-day gathering also provides unique special events, including an urban bat educational cruise, honeybee health excursion, street dog charity vet clinic, vet for a day outing, and free health screenings. As the industry’s premier organization, the AVMA promises to put on an engaging and worthwhile event.

Veterinary conferences can fulfill several needs of VetPartners members. Those looking to maintain professional licensing can access a wealth of educational content and approved CE hours, while those looking to network or promote their businesses can set up shop in the exhibit hall and attend industry-specific events. Regardless of which conferences you decide to attend in the second quarter of 2024, we hope to see you there! And, as always, don’t forget to mark your calendar for the VetPartners 2024 Mid-Year Conference (August 20–22 in Kansas City)—registration will be open soon!
