bringing business to business
After the resounding success of the 2019 USA VetForum, we are delighted to announce its return in November 2020. The event joins OpenRoom’s global portfolio of events for the healthcare sector, alongside neighbouring events for APAC, Europe and the UK. It is the single most efficient way to meet industry decision makers from across the United States, in one place, at one time.
Over two days, VetForum will connect owners and operators of veterinary groups and GPO’s with technology, equipment and business service providers.
The agenda follows the unique OpenRoom format; combining talks from industry leaders, hosted roundtable sessions and our signature programme of speed-meetings between group decision makers and vendors.
We look forward to welcoming delegates industry-wide to share in their knowledge, experience and expand their business potential.

Testimonial, Director of Veterinary Care, Curo Pet Care
I was very pleased to attend the inaugural VetForum event this year In Austin. It was a really fantastic opportunity for us to make connections with various vendors who can help serve different operational aspects of our network of veterinary hospitals. Since the event we have had follow-ups with several of them to bring their products and services into our practices.
The event itself had a really unique format which provided great opportunity for exposure to a lot of different companies offering an array of products and services. From the group presentations to the one-on-one meetings with the vendors attending, to the group meals which provided great networking opportunities with all attendees, it was a really valuable two days that will have a lasting impact on our practices.
The OpenRoom Events team were delightful to work with and very responsive to all of our needs. They really put on a top notch event. We really look forward to attending the next one in Nashville next year.
VetForum USA heads to the Sheraton Grand Downtown, in the buzzing music city of Nashville.
