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.
