Update: We want to assure all of our attendees that Global Pet Expo will be happening in 2021 during the scheduled show dates, March 24-26. While we are working towards holding a live event, we continue to explore our options, including virtual platforms. The health and safety of our participants is of paramount importance. This is not just a consideration; we are making this a priority at every stage of the planning process.
With the ever-changing impact COVID-19 is having, we are determined to be adaptable to ensure everyone has a successful but safe experience. Likewise, it is our goal in the coming months to be as transparent and informative as possible, so please stay tuned for further updates from the Global Pet Expo team.
