Welcome to our 9th year in Virginia – created to give the Southern East Coast a closer experience of its super successful counterpart in Maryland. This gathering of the animal lover and pet enthusiast community is truly a staple event and a must attend for Virginia families. You are also encouraged to bring your well socialized pets of all kinds!
The Creator of the World of Pets Expo, Jeanne M. Emge, developed this event out of a love of animals. She has a first hand understanding of the power behind the pet enthusiast community. This is THE event to attend each year for the most all access pass to everything animal related. The Expo has a wealth of knowledge and a world of fun to offer every guest, young and old and at every level from pet-curious to pet expert!
Each Year the World of Pets Expo is held at the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Exhibitors fill the spacious HRCC with thousands of products and services, not just for dogs, but pets of all kinds. You’ll get hands on pet experiences, entertainment, educational workshops and speakers, expert pet advice and demonstrations, pet shows, shopping and more.
