Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo 2019 Preview

By Staff

You asked and we delivered! We heard your requests for more advanced classes for the seasoned professional—and we’ve added just that!

Also new for 2019 will be three distinct educational tracks for every level of pet care professional. In addition to the restructuring of the education, this year’s PB&D East Coast Expo will feature more social events and more exhibitors than ever before, as well as a separate half–day of daycare–specific education on Monday, prior to the keynote kick–off.

Our three educational tracks this year will include the Owner/Manager track, the Financial track and the Staff/Continuing Education track. All three tracks will run simultaneously, so pick the one that best fits your needs, or jump back and forth between classes, depending upon your interests.

The Owner/Manager track will include seminars to motivate, empower and educate the seasoned owner or manager, or those just starting out. It will also include actionable information you will be able to implement immediately upon returning to have your boarding and daycare business operating to its utmost potential.  

For the Financial track, we’re thrilled to announce an unprecedented new series of seminars to help maximize your revenues, business value and overall success. The industry’s most powerful, credible and recognized professionals come together under one roof to share game–changing insights on how to survive—and thrive—in this increasingly competitive, multi–billion–dollar industry. 

Be sure to also bring your staff! The Staff/Continuing Education track will feature in–depth information on handling dogs and understanding their behavior, as well as a Pet First Aid & CPR certification course and other seminars on controlling disease in the boarding and daycare environment, and addressing pet health concerns.

Following the four–hour “Dynamic Dog Daycare” program on Monday, will be a keynote address by Shawna Schuh, President of the Women in the Pet Industry Network. After the keynote, be sure to stick around for the meet & greet, sponsored by National Kennel Sales and Live Oak Bank, to enjoy some drinks and food with your industry peers.

Other social events at this year’s expo include a Coffee Social sponsored by Pet Resort Marketing on Tuesday morning, a Networking Reception sponsored by NVA on Wednesday evening and our ever–popular Round Table Luncheons on Wednesday and Thursday.

And don’t worry—we didn’t forget to leave time for trade show shopping! With more vendors than ever, this will be your buying event of the year. Order cleaning products, kennels, software, dog beds, bowls or anything else you might need for your boarding & daycare business. 

So if you’re new to the industry or have been in the business for years, you will not want to miss this year’s PB&D East coast Expo—you’re guaranteed to learn something new!
