We know the VetPartners Mid-Year Meeting has always been a highlight of your year, and you may be bummed that this year’s meeting isn’t happening in-person. So, we’re here to prove that the virtual meeting will be incredible—maybe even better than an in-person gathering. If you haven’t signed up yet, get ready to scramble to the registration page, because you won’t want to miss the Mid-Year Virtual Meeting for four reasons:

#1: Attending the virtual meeting is so easy

You may not be tech-savvy, with your IT person No. 1 on your speed-dial, yet the virtual meeting will still be a cinch to attend. After you register, you will receive a welcome email, with a link for creating your profile on the Pathable conference platform. Then, you simply log in to the online portal during the conference to enjoy live sessions, network with your colleagues, and explore the exhibit hall. If you run into any trouble navigating the conference platform, our help team is only a click away.

#2: Learning opportunities are on repeat

When attending a live webinar, do you wish you could hit “rewind” to listen to an important point again? Maybe the kids were wrestling and the dogs were barking, or you wanted to grab a snack. Since every lecture of the virtual meeting will be recorded, you don’t have to worry about missing out, or wondering what the speaker just said. Also, you can glean more information by checking out all the Mid-Year Meeting’s recorded sessions until the end of 2020. Of course, you’ll get more from a session by attending live and asking the speaker questions, or chatting with your colleagues in real-time, but with recorded sessions, you have access to the collective knowledge of the best and brightest in the veterinary industry for months after the meeting.

#3: Virtual networking is a breeze

Networking with the movers and shakers in veterinary-geared businesses can be a challenge if you have to track them all down in person. With the Pathable platform, finding the right person to handle your legal inquiries, coach you on your marketing plan, or create your dream facility is a breeze. With a few clicks, you can search through the speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees to find the person who can best help boost your business. And, although the Mid-Year Meeting will conclude, the networking opportunities don’t stop—you can continue to connect with contacts and new colleagues you meet virtually.

#4: A virtual meeting saves you money

Does the cost and hassle of organizing your travel to attend a conference in person fill you with dread? Well, you don’t need to fork over cash for a hotel room, plane tickets, or dining out when a meeting is virtual. And, virtual attendance at VetPartners’ Mid-Year Meeting will not only save you money, because you don’t need to splash on pricey travel packages, but will also allow you to continue working throughout the conference. While we encourage you to attend the sessions live, you can watch recorded sessions during your free time, and keep working and  building your empire during the day. 

A bonus benefit: You can join in on all the fun and knowledge-sharing in your PJs! No need to dress up in those killer heels—although we know you’ve been dying for an excuse to wear them—or that choker-tight tie. Simply relax in your comfiest clothes, grab your favorite beverage, snag the best seat in the house on your couch, and settle in for any of the Mid-Year Meeting’s info-packed sessions.
