Events

Always at the forefront of new innovations within veterinary and animal care design, rfa maintains a strong, visible presence within the communities that we serve. While constantly researching and identifying new efficiencies and establishing trends and options to explore that may be valuable to our clients, both of our firm's Principals as well as other key representatives of the team annually exhibit at many national veterinary and animal care conventions, conferences, and expos throughout the United States, often also conducting continuing education seminars or lectures. Below is rfa's upcoming attendance schedule; keep checking back as we add new events!

Animal Care Expo

VIRTUAL • Apr 21-23, 2021

The Humane Society of the United States' Animal Care Expo will be online once again in 2021! Last year saw a highly engaging and educational experience, so rfa is thrilled to invite you to join us once more this April. While you will be able to access our exclusive resources and reach out to us via our virtual booth at any time throughout the three-day event, Warren Freedenfeld (Principal Architect) and Rosetta DePaul (Director of Client Services) will be live in the Expo's Exhibit Hall with the following hours if you'd like to chat one-on-one:

• Wed 4/21 - 11:00a-12:15p EDT & 2:35p-3:50p EDT
• Thurs 4/22 - 11:00a-12:15p EDT & 3:35p-4:50p EDT
• Fri 4/23 - 11:00a-12:00p EDT & 2:00p-3:00p EDT

Furthermore, Warren will be hosting Round Table sessions on the topic of "Exploring Fundraising Opportunities throughout the Animal Shelter Design Process", discussing the incorporation of design strategies that provide income-generating opportunities for your shelter/rescue organization. Warren will highlight how our free fundraising assistance services throughout each phase of project development help to ensure life-long adoptions and develop community support and engagement. One-hour Round Table sessions will occur on Friday, April 23rd at 12pm EDT and 3pm EDT.

The Animal Care Expo Online platform, including our virtual booth, will be accessible until June 30, 2021. We look forward to connecting with you to learn more about your design goals for your animal care facility!
