Details for shipping to the advanced warehouse or direct to the Denver Convention Center will be released in February of 2023.

From the first day of move-in through the last day of move-out, there will be 24-hour perimeter badge-checkers for the exhibit floor. This level of security is intended to control the access of people and material to and from the Exhibits in a safe and organized manner. It is not intended as individual security for your booth and materials.

Please remember that the Denver Convention Center is a public building to which hundreds of individuals have access – let alone the number of individuals involved in the shipping of your materials to and from the exhibition, and the installation and dismantling of displays. 

Be security conscious at all times during your time at the show. Do not leave items of value in your booth overnight, during the installation period, or exhibition days without taking security precautions.

Exhibitors can order overnight booth security from the security vendor. Remember that the security of your product is your responsibility—don't take chances!

Yes! It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to insure their property. Exhibitors are required to provide for their own floater insurance coverage, protecting against damage, loss, or theft. The American Veterinary Medical Association, their agents, the Denver Convention Center, GES, and their respective agents will not be responsible in any way against theft, fire, or accident.

The GES Service Center and Exhibits Management Office will be located in the back of the exhibit hall.

Visit the GES Service Center for assistance with shipments, orders, or other service needs that you may have.

Visit the Exhibits Management Office for general information about the exhibition and facility.

If you would like to follow up post-convention, please contact exhibits@avma.org.

Exhibitors who rolled over funds to 2022 but did not use the voucher code this year, your funds will be refunded to you by December 2022. We will not be rolling over any payments to 2023.

The health and wellbeing of all attendees is of the utmost importance to the AVMA. We are committed to providing an environment in compliance with all CDC, state, and local mandates and guidelines.
