Event description

Unleash the power of your pet business at the most pawsome pet conference

Get ready for a conference that's more than just a meeting of minds – it's a meeting of paws, claws, and extraordinary business owners!

Over this day and a half event network with top dogs, cool cats, and a whole zoo of business professionals. From startups to industry giants, this is where the pet world's who's who will gather. Our keynote speakers are ready to give insights on trends, innovations, and unleash strategies that'll have your business purring with success.

  • Engage in peer-to-peer discussions with industry experts. Whether you're in pet tech, daycare, boarding, walking or grooming, we've got panels that'll scratch every entrepreneurial itch.
  • Explore the latest products and services in the pet industry. From innovative gadgets to industry trends, discover what's making tails wag in the market. 
  • Learn how to maintain a healthy work-life balance while still growing or maintaining your business and it wouldn’t be a pet-friendly conference if we don't discuss the challenges of managing a team that barks, meows, or chirps.


Speakers include:
