Pet Expo 2014
Singapore’s Largest PET-ducational Fair!
The first inaugural Pet Expo was held on 28th February to 2nd March 2014 last year at Singapore Expo Hall 6A. The exhibition was graced by Mr Desmond Lee, Minister of State for National Development, and featured Amber, Singapore’s own celebrity Golden Retriever, and Bobo, Singapore’s very first skateboarding dog!
With over 52 exhibitors showcasing their newest range of products and services, Pet Expo 2014 saw a total of 19, 870 public visitors and 3, 005 pets over the 3 days fair. Aimed at educating current and to-be pet owners about responsible pet ownership and practices, the exhibition also included an exciting line up of activities such as workshops, seminars, games, and contests spanning across a wide array of topics such as nutrition, grooming, and animal behaviour.
An all-day adoption parade supported by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) also helped 80% of shelter animals find homes. Pet Expo also hosted the largest Golden Retriever gathering in Singapore, with an assembly of 102 Golden Retrievers, and entered the Singapore Book of Records for the event.
