20 years of history! From the very beginning, Expozoo has had the goal of reuniting the Quebec pet industry. But how did all of this start? PIJAC Canada had been invited to a private event hosted by the Petland Group in Quebec in 1998 where you could find approximately 35 exhibitor booths. The organizers intended to expand the show and offer it to the entire pet industry in Quebec. PIJAC Canada chose to offer a show that met Petland Quebec’s goal of reuniting the entire pet industry under one roof. What was an event of 138 booths in 2004 is now an event of 240 booths in 2018. The success of the event with each passing year has allowed PIJAC Canada to expand the show to offer more opportunities to participants. Trade shows like Expozoo allow PIJAC Canada to continue funding special projects and programs available to members across the country. The revenue is entirely reinvested into the industry, allowing PIJAC Canada to continue educating, offering information and being animal welfare advocates. Expozoo is also an opportunity for attendees to be the first to take part in new workshops and seminars. It is truly an event based on education, sharing and networking.
Many things have changed over the last 20 years. Not only has the show expanded in size and participation, but the common themes and topics have evolved as well. It is important for PIJAC Canada to offer visitors an opportunity to learn new things with each visit to the show. PIJAC Canada makes sure to stay on top of trends and issues to keep participants informed and interested. There is always something new to learn at Expozoo.
PIJAC Canada’s trade shows are unique in the sense that they are the largest gathering of pet industry professionals, all under one roof. It is an occasion to network and get the pulse of the markets. What makes Expozoo particularly unique is that it caters to the francophone market. PIJAC Canada is excited and honoured to be able to organize this event. Thank you to all of you for continuing to make Expozoo an amazing success.
