Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo West postponed until next year | New

Out of concern for the health and safety of attendees, suppliers and employees, Barkleigh Productions Inc. has decided to postpone its Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo West, which was scheduled to take place in May in Burbank, California. The exhibit will now be held May 2-5, 2022. Booth reservations and sponsorships will be honored on the new dates and will remain unchanged, according to Barkleigh officials.

The decision came in conjunction with the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport and California governor’s office postponement request.

“The pet boarding and day care industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic,” officials said in a statement. “Barkleigh hosted a four-part webinar series to help pet care providers pick up the pieces during this difficult time. While our in-person boarding events are postponed, ‘Pet Boarding and Daycare Virtual Expo: Picking Up the Pieces’ will be held live during the original dates of Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo West 2021, May 3-6, via Zoom . “

This online webinar series is designed to provide a toolkit for pet boarding and daycare businesses to adapt to societal changes caused by the pandemic, officials say.

“During live webinars, attendees are encouraged to use our chat feature to participate in valuable peer-to-peer discussions,” officials said. “In order to create a space where pet professionals can openly discuss issues among peers and with our speakers, this event will only be offered live.”

Registration information for the webinar can be found here.
