Make plans now to exhibit and sponsor at Animal Care Expo (Expo)! Expo will be an inspiring virtual experience April 21-23, 2021 and as much as we’d like to see you in Las Vegas in person, we don’t want to gamble with the well-being of conference participants.

Expo is a comprehensive and cutting-edge conference featuring 40 professional development sessions on topics such as veterinary telehealth, disaster preparedness, non-surgical sterilization, housing policies and eviction response, cat behavior, employee wellness plans and so much more.

Expo’s success is unmatched, and it continues to draw the largest gathering of animal welfare professionals in the country. Our pivot to an online platform for 2020 was very successful with over 4800 attendees registered with over 64,000 booth entries.

If this is your market, you can’t miss this unique opportunity to showcase your products and services! There will be a limited number of booths offered. Apply now!
