This year’s VetPartners Mid-Year Conference will be held in Kansas City from August 20 to 22. Focusing on business, innovation, and practice management, our event will feel different from typical lecture-style CE. Members and non-members are welcome to come and learn from our expert speakers and unique panels, and network with some of the industry’s most well-known consultants, speakers, writers, and more. Here are a few highlights from the upcoming conference agenda and what you can expect to take away from each session.

Learn about the Animal Health Corridor

Kansas City and the surrounding areas are home to a confluence of animal health businesses—but why here? In this session with Animal Health Corridor CEO Kimberly Young, dive into the history and creation of the Animal Health Corridor, a hub of innovation and collaboration in the veterinary industry. You’ll learn how competitors came together around shared priorities to develop initiatives that have significantly advanced the veterinary industry, how to support an innovation-based business ecosystem, and how industry clusters drive growth.

Discover the path to innovation

Wednesday afternoon, join industry experts from Elanco, Galant, Torigen, and Mars for a panel discussion on the advent of veterinary medicine’s latest advances and their impact on the field. Learn about the innovation journey, from the first “lightbulb moment” to marketing, selling, and using the newest technologies and discoveries. This session invites consultants and related professionals to dig deep and explore how they can contribute new and valuable ideas to the veterinary world.

Expand your services with telehealth, concierge medicine, and more

Are you interested in helping to expand your clients’ offerings or break the traditional brick-and-mortar mold? On Thursday morning, join Crista Wallis, DVM, Roger Layman, and Wendy Hauser, DVM for a panel discussion on non-traditional care delivery models. The session will cover telehealth and virtual care, building de-novo practices, and new ways to meet veterinary client needs and maximize practice efficiency.

Join the circuit: Become a standout speaker

After Thursday’s lunch, listen to legendary veterinary speakers, including Stacy Pursell, BA, CPC, CERS, Peter Weinstein, DVM, MBA, Karen Felstead, CPA, MS, DVM, CVPM, CVA, Mary Berg, BS, LATG, RVT, VTS (Dentistry), and David McCormick, MS, CVA, as they discuss how to join the speaker circuit to share ideas and knowledge with other professionals. Learn how to get noticed, craft thoughtful discussions, and create compelling presentations that leave your audience wanting more. Whatever your focus and passion, this session will equip you with the skills to shine on stage.

Share your expertise: Get published

Wish your byline could be included in the latest issue of that well-known industry publication? This session will help. Learn how published industry authors earn spots and bylines in industry magazines, websites, and other professional publications. This panel will provide advice for getting noticed by editors, what to expect from the writing and editing process, and what goes into producing a well-loved veterinary reference resource. If you’re interested in writing to share your knowledge, this session is for you.
