Are you looking for a way to build or expand your connections with the Chicago-area Veterinary Community?

Veterinary Specialty Center hosts continuing education events throughout the year that draw veterinary practitioners from the local community. Each conference focuses on a different aspect of veterinary medicine and provides access to a slightly different audience. We heavily cross-promote our sponsors and provide plenty of access to attendees during registration, lunch, and breaks.

We are continually looking for corporate sponsors to support these programs –
