2018 Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo: The Greatest Boarding & Daycare Conference of the Year!
Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo 2018, which took place from November 11th-14th at the Hershey Lodge was a smashing success!
This year’s expo had a total of 705 attendees, an increase over last year’s expo, and a sold–out trade show with 75 exhibitors boasting the newest and most valuable pet care industry products and technology.
Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo offered 31 different educational seminars from beginner information all the way up to certification courses. Some of the highlight seminars offered at the expo were Quiet Dog Daycare Workshop, Limiting Anxiety and Stress in the Workplace, Preventing Respiratory Infectious Disease in Pet Care Facilities, First Aid for Your Facility and Heroes for Healthy Pets.
The expo also held a Keynote Presentation that was a jubilant, laughter–filled display lead by Philip Paris which focused on the Guiding Principles for Success in Today’s Pet Care Industry. It was a great reminder that, in order to take care of our successful business, we need to first take care of ourselves.
There were two exciting social networking events that took place during the expo: The National Kennel Sales Meet & Greet Party, sponsored by National Kennel Sales & Appraisals and Live Oak Bank, as well as the NVA Networking Reception sponsored by the National Veterinary Associates. Attendees were able to enjoy good conversation, hors d’oeuvers and drinks while connecting with like–minded individuals.
Overall, this year’s expo was quite the success and we are looking forward to next year already!
