WVC is doubling its year-round meeting and education space in Las Vegas through the acquisition of a second building near the 10-year-old Oquendo Center.
The organization, which plays host to the veterinary industry’s WVC Annual Conference at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, expects to have the 71,000-square-foot facility ready to open in June 2020 as a setting for courses in veterinary medicine and human medicine. WVC is awaiting accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
“WVC is excited to expand our footprint with a second facility,” said chief operating officer Aubrey Arreola, CMP. “This expansion will allow us to better serve the medical community now and into the future. Our commitment to excellence and quality education will continue to be our focus as we grow.”
WVC reported that it expects to host more than 70 veterinary courses and over 100 human health events in 2020.
The newly acquired building, which does not yet have an official name, will be renovated before occupancy. Located on South Eastern Avenue, it is a five-minute walk from the nearly 70,000-square-foot Oquendo Center.
