Exhibitor Information

After the success of our first virtual show in 2020, PIJAC Canada will be hosting its’ second bilingual and live National Pet Industry Show, sponsored by StreetDog Marketing Inc. The show will take place on April 25th – 26th, 2021 and will be live from 10am-6pm EST on both days. It is open to industry players from all across Canada, and is an event you surely do not want to miss!

vFairs

We have purchased a platform called vFairs, where the virtual show will take place. When we first discovered this impressive platform, we knew that this was the one that would give you the best results and offer the visitors an elevated experience.

Watch the demo video to see how it works.

    • If you need any help with your booth set-up, please email momin@vfairs.com.
  • You can have as many representatives at your virtual booth(s) as you wish. There will be a space to add them in your booth set-up process.

      • Create different logins with different email addresses for yourself/your team for each booth they are in.
  • We are also including one place in the new product package per booth. This package will be a pdf package of all new products where you can share information and a picture of your new product, like at the physical show.

What’s New – SHOW UPGRADES FOR 2021

Every show has a learning curve and we learned a lot from our first virtual show last year. Thanks to your feedback we have made some great additions.  Here are some of the improvements and planned additions for this year:

Product Search Capability – Add your products to your exhibitor profile and attendees will be able to easily find what you have to offer.

Direct Order Requests – attendees can now make immediate order requests via your virtual booth.

Automatic Lead Retrieval – know exactly who is in your booth at any given time and capture their details.

Pre-show Visitor List – see company names and addresses of pre-registered visitors just before the show.

Redesigned Exhibit Hall Functions – we’ve added multiple halls and a birds eye view function so it’s easier for clients to find you.

Access to More Emails – Attendees will have the option to share their email when they register which will be added to your visitor list at the end of the show.

Exhibitor Visibility – Promote your company and products via sponsorships and advertising opportunities. Contact us emma.cowie@pijaccanada.com for more details.
