Industry Partner Program
Each year, the veterinary industry lends financial support to the OVMA and the Farley Foundation. This support allows the Association to offer world-class continuing education, invaluable economic research, high quality member publications and helps to raise charitable funds for the Farley Foundation.
To recognize those companies contributing to the Association, we have established a system to highlight OVMA’s Industry Partners. The system is based on financial contributions to both the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association and the Farley Foundation during the previous calendar year. Please note that Exhibit Space rental fees are not included as part of the calculation of Partner Level.
Please note the support levels and qualifying amounts for the 2015 OVMA Industry Partners – to be used for the allocation of 2016 Exhibit space:

Why become an OVMA Industry Partner?
Our industry partners will be acknowledged each year in our member magazine, Focus. We also use this program to determine the order of allocating trade show space each year. Companies who have met Diamond level requirements will have the first opportunity to make their booth location selection for the next year’s trade show, followed by the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Partners. Then the trade show floor will be made available to all other prospective exhibitors.
