Why Attend a Conference?

AZADV Conferences offer opportunities for members to network, share ideas, visit the host facility, and learn from educational presentations led by AZADV members and industry leaders with years of experience in zoo and aquariums. Annual activities include the delegate's meeting, a photo contest, silent auction, and behind-the-scenes access on Zoo Day. Side trips are also planned for conference attendees to experience nearby zoos, aquariums, or attractions. An international conference has been hosted each year since 1986.
