Animal Care Expo is the largest international educational conference and trade show for animal welfare professionals and volunteers. Over 2,500 attendees are expected to join us in New Orleans in 2023. Experts from all aspects of animal welfare will come together from across the globe to learn about the latest programs, share best practices, gain inspiration, and build lasting connections. The conference features an international trade show promoting the latest animal care products and services from a wide range of exhibitors. With eleven workshop tracks, learning labs, networking opportunities and social events, Animal Care Expo has something for everyone who cares about companion animals.

We are excited to return to New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Expo will feature nearly 100 professional development sessions in-person and select livestreamed sessions for a virtual audience. These broadcasted sessions will be recorded and available to both in-person and virtual participants for on-demand viewing after the conference.
