The winners will be selected in a random drawing held in the Exhibit Hall. An independent judge whose decisions are final will perform the drawings. The winner will be given five minutes to come forward and claim the prize or another name will be drawn and the original winner will forfeit the prize. The original or prior name(s) drawn will remain in the drawing.
Please allow a minimum of 15 minutes prior to the scheduled drawing time to submit your request for additional tickets based on any purchases made on the exhibit floor.
Winners must purchase all equipment/supplies/products, etc, by the closing of the Exhibit Hall on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Odds of winning depend solely on the number of DVM and technician/hospital personnel registrants and the additional tickets available based on purchases on the exhibit floor.

Travel expenses consist of either one coach airline ticket (airline will be at the discretion of SWVS) or the equivalent mileage costs from the winner's destination city (listed on the registration form) at the current IRS mileage allowances, whichever is less.
