bringing business to business



December 4, 2020


Online | December 4, 2020

VetForumfocus is a dynamic meetings event, which delivers an efficeint, surefire way to stay in touch with your market.  Lead generation, brand awareness and thought leadership are a vital lifeline for all businesses.  But in a world where travel is restricted, it's time to work with new delivery platforms.

A stripped back version of the annual in-person VetForum, this online edition will focus on our USP: concentrated, pre-arranged one-on-one meetings. Just one day of focused content and pair-ups, there is no 'click-luck' virtual exhibition hall, just guaranteed 15-minute meetings between the USA's leading Vet Groups and innovative manufacturers and solution providers.

Using a secure and simple-to-use system, you will be able to select which companies you'd like to meet and we'll do the rest. Our team will be working closely with you to build a full schedule optimised to your preferences - and your one-on-one meetings will be delivered seamlessly to wherever you are working.
