When we were young, the pursuit of the perfect veterinary conference was a noble one. The methods were simple, and attendees were easy to please. There were only two conferences then: big...and small.

But then several years ago there was a conference renaissance, an explosion of creativity as conference creators sought to push the boundaries of what vet conferences were, and what veterinary conferences could be. Suddenly, there were conferences for vet moms, conferences for anesthesia nerds, conferences with memberships, conferences on ships, conferences that look like not-conferences, and the great equalizer of them all: on-demand virtual conferences where you can your pajamas. :scream:

The last few years have forced us to forget everything we've known about veterinary conferences.

Enter Vets Against Insanity CON…a veterinary conference that boldly goes where no conference has gone before….or maybe we are making conferences great again? Or perhaps it’s with great conferences come great responsibility? Ack…who knows…

In celebration of 5 years serving the veterinary profession by boosting morale and making you laugh so hard you almost pee your pants with our slightly scandalous Vets Against Insanity games, we are offering the inaugural Vets Against Insanity CON, a unique, regional veterinary conference October 21-23, 2022 at Ameristar Casino and Spa Resort in beautiful Blackhawk, Colorado.

Located in the foothills just went of Denver, Blackhawk is Colorado's premier gaming destination, and is also within driving distance of world-class outdoor activities, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and countless other attractions.

What makes this conference different? 

Well...the premise is built on a card game, so you have to know that its' going to be out-of-the-box and you are going to have fun and partay. By keeping the conference limited to 200 regional attendees, you are guaranteed to create relationships and connections that will support you long after the conference is over, and you will have opportunity all weekend long to connect with the drippiest speakers, awesomesauce exhibitors, and game creators. HOLLERRRR

What can I expect at this event?

  • The first night is all about connection and inspiration - you definitely don’t need a conference buddy! We will be having fun together in several ways, including playing the game and winning prizes!  Drinks (and snacks) are on us because who can't use a little social lubrication? Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Feather boas, fantastic team tshirts, furries all welcome...Yeah you read that right. If you've got an inner freak, this is the event to let her/him/they/ze out. Prizes, laughter, and connection is what this night is about - you don't want to miss it! We will have VAI games for playing, but if you aren't in to our game (weirdo..jk) bring your own board games to play. Catan, Trouble, Jenga, D&D, whatever - bring it and I'm sure you will find some gamers to play it with you! 
  • Saturday is amazing medical CE surrounding topics in infectious disease and integrative practice delivered by engaging speakers (because boring is so passé) and multiple opportunities to network with exhibitors. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks provided.
  • CE on Sunday morning will be focused on developing YOU, when the game creators and other industry leaders will share their secrets to help you to create a plan for reawakening your love for yourself, your life, and your career. Sessions are about professional development and wellbeing, designed to leave you refreshed, inspired, and ready to tackle your next big thing. Breakfast and snacks provided, conference ends at noon so you can go enjoy Blackhawk because we are taking back Sunday!

Having fun, playing the hottest game in vetmed with fellow game-o-philes, making friends and creating supportive connections that last, enjoying the beauty of Colorado, perhaps getting lucky at the poker table, earning solid CE, sleeping in a plush hotel bed that someone else cleans, dancing on the tables, and creating a plan to unleash your best self and your highest potential...who doesn't love that?
Come...learn and play at Vets Against Insanity CON.
