OVMA is excited to host the 2020 Conference and Trade Show Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Ont.
Given the continued demand for exhibit space and to ensure that all interested companies have an equal opportunity to acquire space in the trade show, OVMA will allocate exhibits space based on a “lottery draw.”
Companies interested in exhibiting in the 2020 OVMA Trade Show are required to submit an Exhibitor’s Application & Contract form (page 28 of the Exhibitors’ Prospectus), completed in full, no later than 12 p.m. on June 10, 2019.
All companies that submit a completed Exhibitor’s Application & Contract and Classification of Products & Services form (pages 28-30 of the Exhibitors’ Prospectus) will be entered in a lottery to determine the order of exhibit space allocation. Applications will be drawn at random from all those submitted, and exhibit space will be assigned on that basis until all available space has been allocated.
Please submit your completed Exhibitor Application & Contract to the OVMA office by mail (420 Bronte St. S., Suite 205, Milton, ON L9T 0H9), fax (1.877.482.5941), or by email to email@example.com.
A completed and signed contract MUST be received in order to reserve space. Invoicing for trade show space is not an option. Payment must be provided with the application and can only be made by Visa, Mastercard or cheque. If paying by cheque, the cheque must be received within two weeks after exhibit space has been confirmed for your company. If payment is not received, your space will be released and offered to another interested company. For more information, please refer to "Allocation of Space" on page 9 of the Exhibitor’s Prospectus.
OVMA's 2019 Industry Partners have already chosen their 2020 exhibit space. An updated floorplan has been included to indicate exhibit locations that are already reserved; the exhibit spaces shown in grey are no longer available. Be sure to refer to this updated floorplan before completing your top-four preferred booth choices on your application form.
As space in OVMA’s annual Trade Show is limited, preference will be given to companies offering products or services designed specifically for use by veterinarians or veterinary hospitals. Companies that serve small animal businesses generally or whose products are intended primarily for use by veterinary clients may be allocated space at OVMA’s discretion.
Please also note that, as demand for exhibit space invariably exceeds the available supply, receipt of your completed exhibit application by OVMA within the designated time period does not guarantee that you will be allocated exhibit space through the lottery process.
Any questions should be directed to Patty Dawson, manager of continuing education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.800.670.1702, ext. 226.
