PBD Expo West

By Staff

Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport – Burbank, California


Since last year’s Pet Boarding & Daycare West expo was such a success, we decided to do it again! The Expo returns to the same location again this year, at the Marriott Los Angeles in beautiful Burbank, CA. This year’s dates are May 2nd-5th.

The Expo will feature new, industry leading speakers sharing their success secrets, fun events, and dozens of vendor booths for all of your boarding and daycare shopping needs! Be sure to get there early so you don’t miss the Monday evening Keynote Speaker. This year we have Veronica Boutelle, founder of Dog*Tec, a full-service business and marketing support organization for the dog pro industry. Veronica will be presenting “Today’s Dog Professional”. In this inspirational talk, Veronica will change the way you think about yourself as an animal pro and business owner—and about the profession you belong to.

Immediately following the Keynote speaker will be a “Meet and Greet” Cocktail Party. This will give you the chance to relax after traveling and socialize with your fellow pet industry peers. Educational seminars covering all aspects of the industry will begin Tuesday morning with two hour classes, followed by four hour classes Tuesday afternoon. One hour seminars will be going on all day Wednesday and Thursday. Some of the Wednesday classes will be repeated on Thursday so you won’t miss out on an opportunity to attend the top seminars.

Round table luncheons will be available for purchase (also part of some packages) Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The luncheons are designed to give you a chance to discuss industry topics with other attendees, and possibly even some of the speakers, all while enjoying a delicious lunch. On Wednesday night, Health Technology Professional Products will be hosting a “Happy Hour” party; free to all attendees. The party will feature a cash bar, finger foods, caricature artist, and photo booth. Come prepared to have some fun with your peers and the Health Technology team!

In addition to all of the great seminars, there is also a two day trade show that will be open all day Wednesday and Thursday. Many vendors will be set up offering “cash and carry”. So be ready to do some shopping in between seminars and get up close and personal with all of the new products and services you may need for your facility. If you would like to increase your profitability, decrease staff turnover, learn some new techniques, protocols or procedures, or even if you are just starting out with only a vision of opening your very own facility, the Pet Boarding and Daycare West Expo is the event you will not want to miss! ✂
