At Pet Con pet lovers from all around Southern California came to Shop – Learn – Play – Adopt at Pet Event Productions convention hosted at Business Expo Center
February 2019 we held the 7th annual SoCal Pet Con™ ! Pets were invited to receive services from local groomers, sample treats, and try the latest in furry fashion. Pet owners were invited to interact with top trainers and to experience the joy of their happy pets. Furthermore, pet Event Professionals worked hard to produce the best SoCal Pet Con yet. As a result, many trainers came to offer pet-care tips provided by animal welfare organizations. Most noteworthy, the Convention was a great success attracting many animal-loving attendees from all around Southern California, not just Orange County.
First of all, Pet Event Productions strives to improve the pet service industry by supporting it at the community level. They do this by creating events where pet-related businesses can expand their network and clientele.
