If you do not receive your New York Vet badge in the mail before the conference, badges are available at the Registration Desk, where you can also find help with badge changes. All registered attendees must wear their badge at all times and will not be admitted to the Exhibit Hall or any Conference Theater without a badge.

Conference Theater attendance is reserved for attendee registrants only. Guests (eg, spouses, significant others) are defined as those who do not work in the veterinary industry. Guests receive Exhibit Hall only badges and are not allowed in conference theaters, but they are welcome to spend time in the Exhibit Hall.
