Workshop subjects should be in-depth explorations of animal health, animal management, taxa-specific husbandry, and keeper professional development. Workshops should be two hours in length. Subjects that require more than two hours should be submitted as “Part One” and “Part Two”.
Open Topical Workshops
This new Open Workshop format will offer unlimited attendance (based on the capacity of the ballroom) and will be best suited for lecture-based workshops with a Q & A session at the end.
Limited Topical Workshops
Held in limited capacity breakout rooms, this format is best suited for small group interactive workshops and will have a cap on the number of participants.
Panel Discussions must have a minimum of three instructors and are designed to offer multiple points of view, and include a Q&A component. Can be Open Attendance or Limited Attendance Format.
