The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the

Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) are teaming up

in Toronto, Canada to bring you the AAHA/OVMA Conference –

Toronto 2011.

AAHA’s Yearly Conference has been one of the most respected

forums for both scientific and management education in the veterinary

profession for 77 years. Established in 1933 by leaders in

veterinary medicine, AAHA is the only exclusive companion animal

veterinary association. Our mission is to provide veterinary professionals

with the resources they need to effectively manage their businesses

and deliver the best in companion animal care.

The Association has become known for its high standards in veterinary

medicine and quality pet care, and is dedicated to promoting

those standards within the profession through accreditation. The

AAHA brand is recognized internationally for excellence in veterinary

education, superior practice standards and unsurpassed professional

development.

The Ontario Veterinary Medical Association is the professional

association representing Ontario’s 3,300 veterinarians in private

practice, government, academia, industry and public service. The

association specializes in helping members improve practice productivity

and profitability. OVMA staff provide veterinary economic

consulting services to organizations across North America. The

Association’s annual conference and tradeshow is the largest annual

veterinary event in Canada, attracting more than 2,000 delegates

and exhibitors.


Attendees

AAHA and OVMA members are at the forefront of the veterinary

industry, making them an incredible target for your products and

extremely powerful market.

each year. These practices are renowned for their excellence in veterinary

Atmosphere

AAHAnet.org/AAHAOVMAToronto2011

2011 means even more opportunity for exhibitors. Participating in

this international conference means you not only receive the service

and quality that the AAHA and OVMA conferences are known for,

but you become part of the largest annual veterinary gathering in

Canada as well. The AAHA/OVMA Conference – Toronto 2011

is your ticket to an international presence for your company. One

booth has never reached so far.

Each year, the AAHA and OVMA Conferences boast a friendly,

helpful environment with staff available to assist exhibitors with

questions or concerns. One-of-a-kind traffic building promotions

encourage attendees to visit the Exhibit Hall, growing your collection

of qualified business leads.

“As always, the OVMA is one of the best organized and

attended shows. It is also the biggest market for our prod-

ucts. I will say that the relationship between OVMA and Pfizer

is very positive and we have always found the OVMA recep-

tive to hearing new ideas and approaches.”

— John Hayward,

Pfizer Animal Health Canada,

OVMA 2009 exhibitor

The conference’s team-focused learning structure attracts more staff

from each practice than other veterinary tradeshows, giving you

access to multiple key decision-makers within one practice. Because

key contacts from AAHA-accredited practices attend each year,

you know you are exposing your products and services to the most

financially successful, technologically advanced and medically adept

group of professionals in the industry.

“The AAHA and Freeman staff were all wonderful — extremely

helpful and friendly. This is the first show we’ve ever set up

and they made the process very easy. We got great reception

from attendees and are looking forward to the next one.”

— Mychelle Blake,

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers,

AAHA Phoenix 2009 exhibitor

Move-In

The AAHA/OVMA Conference – Toronto 2011

requires compliance with the legislation contained in

the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) as

governed by the Ontario Ministry of Labour. Certain

aspects of the conference move-in and move-out could

be interpreted as a “construction site.” This falls within

very specific regulations of the OHSA. AAHA/OVMA

and our contractors and venue management have

been advised by the Ontario Ministry of Labour that, at

the very least, this situation calls for the availability and

wearing of approved hard hats and approved safety

shoes/boots.

Ontario Electrical Safety Code

Requirements

It is a requirement of Rules 2-022 and 2-024 of the

Electrical Safety Code, a provincial regulation, that all

electrical products sold, displayed or connected to a

source of power must be approved by a recognized

certification agency in Ontario. Approved products

have been assessed to ensure that they meet the

safety requirements of the Ontario Electrical Safety

Code. Electrical products that do not bear the mark of

a recognized certification agency may be unsafe, and

could pose serious electrical shock and/or fire hazard.

Check electrical products to ensure that they have

been approved and meet the electrical safety standards

established for Ontario.

Look for the mark of one

of the following certification agencies:

• Canadian Standards Association (CSA)

• Entela

• Intertek Testing Services

• Met Laboratories Inc. (MET)

• OMNI Environmental Services Inc.

• Quality Auditing Institute

• TUV America

• TUV Rheinland

• Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC)

Failure to comply could result in the equipment being

refused connection to the source of electrical supply

and may even be ordered removed from the display.

More information can be found at www.esasafe.

com/pdf/ontario_amendments_canadian_electrical_

code_part_1_c22.1.pdf and www.esasafe.com/

GeneralPublic/epa_002.php?s=19.

Other Regulations

Fire hose cabinets and exit doors must be left

accessible and in full view at all times. All display

material must be flame-proof and subject to inspection

by the Fire Department. No inflammable liquids or

substances may be used or shown in the Exhibit Hall.

Booth Sizes and Decorations

The standard exhibit booth is 10’ x 10’ with an 8’

draped back wall and 3’ high side rails. We encourage

companies with island configurations (those 10’ x

20’ or above with aisles on all four sides of the booth

area) to have their layout reviewed by AAHA/OVMA for

compliance with show rules and regulations.

Booths are uncarpeted. Exhibitors must provide

appropriate floor covering or order carpet through

the decorator. Freeman is the official decorator of the

AAHA/OVMA Conference - Toronto 2011.
