Highlights from the MVMA Annual Meeting

Last month, the Scott Build team spent a few days at the annual meeting of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association in downtown Minneapolis. It was an energizing and informative few days of meeting vets and other animal care professionals from across the country.

Here are a few of the highlights from Scott Build’s experience as an exhibitor at the MVMA Annual Meeting.


The big theme of our MVMA booth this year was our social media contest #SlapOnScottBuild. We gave away 150 puppy dog slap bracelets and asked recipients to capture Bones getting into trouble around the exhibition hall and post the pictures on social media.

Wow, did you all deliver! We were tagged in hundreds of photos of Bones playing with other dogs, roping a calf, watching TV, and partaking in a bit of bubbly. Dana Jordan and Danielle Davis Rios had the most-liked pictures from the event! Congratulations, Dana and Danielle!

MVMF Board Member Wins the Lariat Challenge

Kristen Graham, a member of the board of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Foundation, won Rick’s annual lariat challenge. Many folks tried their hand at lassoing a roping dummy on the exhibitor floor of MVMA. Check out Rick showing everyone how it’s done on Facebook. Congrats Kristen!

Champ Champs Tie for First in the Trivia Contest

There’s a lot of relationship building that goes on in the exhibitor hall of the MVMA Annual Meeting. By the time trivia night came around, Rick and Mandy had wrangled a few meeting attendees onto their trivia team. Rick, Mandy, Dana Jordan, Erin Perkins Galvin, Dr. Christopher Anderson, and Dr. Jessica Koppien-Fox demonstrated their knowledge and tied for first in the contest!
