Laboratory Registration

Laboratory fees increase June 27. Last day to register for a laboratory is August 20. 

ACVS reserves the right to cancel any laboratory that does not meet minimum registrations by August 20. If the laboratory is canceled by this date, registrants will be notified via email no later than August 25, and all paid registration fees will be refunded.

Registrants for laboratories are advised not to make airline and hotel reservations until after August 25 to ensure their selected laboratory is not canceled. ACVS will not reimburse for travel in the case of a cancellation due to low registrations.

All laboratory registration fees must be paid in full by August 20 to guarantee a seat in the desired laboratory. All unpaid seats will be released after August 20 and offered to other participants.

See Laboratories for rates.
