Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Friends of Veterinary Medicine,

Sponsorship opportunities for 2019 are available. The Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) holds one of the largest veterinary conventions in the Midwest and is one of the top in the country. Our dedicated Continuing Education and Program Committees together with MVMA staff continue to bring top quality educational speakers to Minnesota as well as a social venue that draws high attendance. In 2019, the MVMA Annual Meeting will be held in Minneapolis at the Hilton Hotel. Corporate sponsorship is needed to afford the quality of education veterinarians need and desire and they appreciate your commitment to their profession.
