Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo 2021: Everything You Need to Reach Your Goals

November 8-11, 2021 | Hershey Lodge & Convention Center, Hershey, PA

By Staff

The largest event for the pet boarding and daycare industry returns live and in person for 2021! With several new speakers and 27 innovative seminars, this year’s expo is bound to be the best yet.

The boarding and daycare industry took a hard hit over the last year and a half with travel limitations and pet owners staying home and not needing others to care for their pets. Luckily, most in the industry are now seeing business bounce back with force. So, it’s more important than ever that your business stands out from the rest and is operating as efficiently as possible.

All aspects of the industry will be covered in this year’s expo. We have again designated three separate tracks of education to choose from (or mix and match!): Owner/Manager (for those making the business decisions), Staff/Continuing Education (for all employees or anyone wanting to further their education in pet care) and Financial (for anyone making financial decisions, including staffing and marketing).

The expo will kick off Monday afternoon with The Barkleigh Pet Pro First Aid & CPR Certification course, which is an ideal certification for anyone in the pet care industry to possess, including groomers, pet sitters, dog walkers, as well as all boarding/daycare staff.

Following the Monday daytime program will be the Keynote address presented by Dr. Kate Boatright which promises to be inspiring and entertaining. After the Keynote, be sure to stick around for the meet & greet, sponsored by Live Oak Bank, to enjoy some drinks and food with your industry peers.

Other social events at this year’s expo include a Happy Hour sponsored by First Financial Bank on Tuesday evening, a Networking Reception sponsored by NVA on Wednesday evening and our ever-popular Round Table Luncheons on Wednesday and Thursday, sponsored by Kennel Connection.

And, don’t forget about the trade show! Wednesday and Thursday will feature an industry trade show with lots of vendors offering everything you may need for your boarding and daycare business. 

So, if this is the year you want to reach your goals, don’t miss all the 2021 Pet Boarding & Daycare expo has offer!
