Sponsor at Animal Care Expo 2018

Reserve your sponsorship and advertising

Reserve your exhibit space

As an Expo sponsor, you will be able to contribute significantly to professional development in the fields of animal care, rescue, control, protection and emergency response. Your sponsorship provides exceptional visibility for your company—your logo on conference materials, recognition at our professional development sessions and/or access to the fun during meals and entertainment. With a wide range of sponsorship opportunities available, you can pick the package that’s a perfect fit for your company. Go big and put your name on the conference materials or a workshop, or start small and be a part of a daylong course or networking social. Starting at $1,500, we have something for everyone.
