2018 – A YEAR OF INDUSTRY MILESTONES
While 2019 is gearing up to be our biggest year yet, we want to share the success of 2018 with you one more time as you look at planning your year ahead. Whether you are considering how big your exhibit space will be or booking the time to visit one of these events, we want to remind you that PIJAC Canada trade shows belong to you. For 30 years, with your support, we have been building Canada’s own unique network for pet businesses. We believe in your goals and what you work so hard to accomplish in the name of pet well-being.
If you’re looking for inspiration, here’s a brief look at the success we all enjoyed this year thanks to your support.
Held on April 15th and 16th, this was our first Western Canadian Pet Industry Trade Show in British Columbia under our new model. The trade show was held at the Richmond Oval which was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics and overlooks the historic Fraser River and North Shore mountains. The venue was gorgeous, and PIJAC Canada held an Olympic themed gala and party to celebrate. In addition, we had over 380 visitors and over 130 booths! Check out our award winners from the show here. Stay tuned for the 2019 Western Pet Expo taking place in Calgary, Alberta featuring the Western Networking Dinner!
This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary and the biggest ExpoZoo to date! Held in Drummondville, QC the show saw foot traffic of over 1000 people and more than 230 booths. Expozoo was an essential event for anyone wanting to understand and profit in the Quebec market. Check out our award winners from the show here. We are excited for the 2019 show and we expect even higher attendance!
