Become an exhibitor at the 2019 Best Friends National Conference
The Best Friends National Conference is an animal-focused gathering like no other. The conference brings like-minded people together, including some of the nation’s leading and cutting edge authorities in animal welfare, to share strategies and exchange ideas. Last year more than 1,600 people participated in the conference, including board members, staff and volunteers from animal welfare groups, as well as individuals from across the country seeking tools and resources to help them save animals in their own communities. The Best Friends National Conference is where people, passion and purpose come together to Save Them All®.
This year, the conference will be held July 25-27 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. Our exhibit hall brings together companies and organizations from around the country that offer the best resources, information and supplies for animal welfare proponents. Exhibiting will give you unique access to introduce your company, organization and/or products to a variety of animal welfare organizations and animal lovers.
