Pet Show Testimonials
Thank you again for all you did! We all thought this year was really successful!! We had some great leads on future puppy raisers and got some great donations! We would not have been able to have done nearly so well without the wonderful support from Jill and her family.
Attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo is the single most important networking event I have done for my business to date. This is my first time participating in this type of structured event, I was so nervous! Jill Stefanyk and the support staff at the expo were always upbeat and helpful, the weekend was well organized and I felt prepared and confident in the weeks approaching the event. The contacts I made with other pet related businesses and potential clients are invaluable. The event was so fun that my staff are already wondering if we're signing up for next year. Without a doubt, we will be back!
I enjoy this show, the people running it are very helpful and keep a smile on their face for their venders even when run off their feet. Jill does a fantastic job of producing great awareness and advertising for the event and bringing people through the door. There were new things for people to see this year which brings them back the following year. A very well run show!
On behalf of Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital and all our clients and employees, allow me to express my appreciation for all you did to make this year's Vancouver Island Pet Expo a huge success for our company! From the beginning of the registration process, months before the event, to clean up on Sunday night of expo weekend, we enjoyed a stress-free, fun experience. Throughout our preparation, we knew all we had to do was pick up the phone and someone would always be there to help. And the event itself was nicely organized, well attended and allowed us a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community in a way we rarely can. Thank you for all your hard work. Please know we sincerely appreciate it. And I'm sure we'll see you next year!
This was our first year attending the Vancouver Island Pet Expo and it was a terrific experience! We are so happy to have been able to attend and had so much fun! There was a fantastic turnout resulting in some invaluable exposure for our rescue organization. We made some wonderful new friends and several great contacts. It was incredibly well organized and very professionally run. Jill did a superb job of the event from start to finish and her support was amazing! She went above and beyond. We were so impressed by her expertise and dedication to making the event the huge success that it was! We are so grateful to have been a part of it and would highly recommend attending next year whether you are interested in becoming an exhibitor or are a member of the community. A good time will be had by all! Thank you so much Jill for hosting such a fabulous event!
This year was so much fun!! It was busy with a steady flow of people. We had three staff working and were able to get to everyone who stopped by to see us. Lots of laughs and so worth every penny. Ran out of pamphlets and business cards. There was a beautiful energy in the building this year. So glad to be part of the 2012 Pet Expo. See ya all next year. Must pay for booth soon because I have a feeling they will go fast. Thanks again!
Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event. CDART got great feedback and engagement from the public as well as other vendors. We will definitely be coming back!
A Big Thank You from Chloe. First of all my owner would just like to thank you for having a Pet Expo. It's always a wonderful show with lots of exhibitors and entertainment. She comes every year and is never disappointed as she leaves with so much information and treats for me :-) It's also a great place to donate to worthy charities that help abandoned pets. I would just like to send out a huge thank you! I will certainly enjoy many much needed trips to the groomers and quality pet food for a year.How awesome is that.Again thank you soooo much to the sponsors!
I want to thank you for organizing what was an outstanding event in 2011. It was not only a pleasure to participate, but it really helped grow our business on Vancouver Island and in the Greater Victoria area in particular. I was able to create consumer awareness and demand for our products at your event and that translated to stores asking for our product. Your Vancouver Island Pet Expo was able to put me directly in touch with the end users of my products and the return on my investment was substantial. I was really impressed with both the quantity and quality of the consumers you were able to drive to the show. Thanks again for putting on such a great event.
Such a great weekend! Lots of people interested in learning more about the products I was showcasing. The hours were perfect and gave lots of people a chance to come down and check out the Expo. I love that you give away a plant at your events, it really is a nice gesture. It's also amazing that you put in the effort to come around and make sure everything is going ok (that rarely seems to happen at events). Great location for an event and affordable for families' to attend, which is great! Thanks again, you really did a great job. :)
