Ottawa Pet Expo is the premier event in the National Capital region, perfectly timed for you to showcase new products and services to pet parents and just in time for Christmas!

Here you will find everything you need to exhibit at Ottawa Pet Expo: information, brochure, floor plan, and the application form.

Targeted and upscale consumer events such as Ottawa Pet Expo are the only proven form of “permission marketing” where pet parents pay an entrance fee to meet hundreds of companies to compare pet products and services in one convenient place. These are pre-qualified buyers, who attend our shows with the expectation of making specific decisions and purchases.
