Over 1000 Businesses Connect at the National Pet Industry Trade Show

I heard recently that people are like teabags, you never know how strong someone is until they’re in hot water.  This has been inherently true of our industry in the last 13 months and a proven fact judging by the results of the National Pet Industry Trade Show – virtual spring edition.

  • Total exhibitors: 81
  • Total number of visitors: 1,035
  • Total number of booth visits: 29,000
  • Total number of videos viewed: 1,653
  • Total number of documents viewed: 20,049

Shifting the show to a virtual platform in 2020 was a massive adjustment for everyone. A year later and in the face of the many ongoing challenges of this pandemic, we all came together and captured the determination, dedication, and resilience of the Canadian pet businesses and the entire pet community. Our goal is to get back to in-person shows when it is safe to do so.  In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy the virtual show for the next month, including access to our webinar on-demand spring series.

Access the National Pet Industry Show and Webinars on Demand Here until May 25th.
