Attendance Stats
In 2019 the VetSouth Fall Veterinary Conference drew 354 attendees (veterinarians, practice managers & veterinary technicians–does not include exhibitors/guests) from 14 states. Around one-third of our attendees continue to be Practice Owners and over 88% self-identified as Veterinarians. These are statistics from 2019, the last veterinary license non-renewal year in Georgia (odd years). The numbers are most representative of the expected 2021 attendance (based on history).

Hotel
VetSouth has a contractual obligation to fill a guaranteed block of rooms at the Hotel at Avalon. Significant financial penalties will be assessed should VetSouth fall short of the expected number of occupied guest rooms. By staying at the conference hotel you will enjoy the convenience of a short commute to your room, Avalon restaurants & entertainment and to a far greater extent provide valued assistance in support of VetSouth’s financial obligations.
