Hershey, Pennsylvania | Nov. 7-10, 2022

By Staff

The number one industry event for boarding and daycare professionals returns this November to Hershey, PA!

Despite rising gas prices and inflation across all industries, pet owners continue to travel, leaving the pet care industry booming. For most, we are past simply trying to get clients through our doors and make ends meet, and are now struggling with retaining quality staff and coming up with new ways to accommodate and entertain our influx of guests.

The education that this year’s expo has to offer is invaluable to running your business to its full potential. With an overall focus on innovation and working smarter, not harder, everyone in the industry—whether a pet boarding pioneer or new business owner—will greatly benefit from attending.

All aspects of boarding and daycare will be covered by top industry experts, which include animal behaviorists, trainers, marketing gurus, builders and designers, veterinarians, and business consultants. And, there is education geared to all levels, from multi-facility owners to entry-level staff.

The expo will kick off Monday afternoon with the four-hour certificate program “Professional Pet Boarding Infectious Disease Management Certification,” which is packed with the most up-to-date information on infectious canine and feline diseases.

Monday evening we welcome everyone to attend the Keynote Address, “We’ve Come a Long Way: The Evolution, Expansion and Resilience of the Pet Care Industry,” presented by Teija Heikkilä, a well-known innovator of the pet care industry. Following the Keynote Address, will be a meet & greet hosted by PET|VET Sales & Services where you can enjoy a drink and socialize with other attendees.

Seminars will continue all day Tuesday through Thursday covering a variety of topics, all specific to the boarding and daycare industry. Packages are available for the full schedule of education, or you can pick and choose which classes interest you.

There will be additional opportunities to socialize and share stories with others in the business, including the Live Oak Cocktail Party on Tuesday evening, Happy Hour with First Financial Bank on Wednesday evening, and the Kennel Connection Round Table Luncheons on Wednesday and Thursday. 

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 business, including products, consulting services, builders, software, and so much more. 

So, if you’re ready to watch your business thrive, everything that this year’s Pet Boarding & Daycare Expo has to offer is sure to get you on your way!
