Speaker Headquarters
(speaker ready room)

When you are on site at the ACVIM Forum in Baltimore, the Speaker Headquarters (speaker ready room) is your home base. This is where you’ll pick up your two-way radio. In addition, there are dedicated computer terminals for you to print documents and complete your session evaluations if you’re unable to do so in the session room. 

If you need to decompress you are welcome to stop by the Speaker Headquarters any time during the conference. In addition to dedicated computers, there are refreshments available.
