Registration is Open for IBPSA Conference



The International Boarding & Pet Services Association (IBPSA) announced that early bird registration for the Sixth Annual IBPSA Pet Care Services Educational Conference & Trade Show is now open. The pet care services industry business event, happening October 2-4 in St. Louis, is dedicated to bringing fresh ideas and smart insight to educate and inspire the owners, managers and key employees of pet boarding and daycare facilities, as well as pet sitters, veterinarians, groomers, trainers and more working in the pet care services industry.


The conference’s keynote presentation will be by acclaimed speaker, author, and mediator Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton, Esq., who has been featured in and on Today, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, Reuters, and The Huffington Post. Additional speakers include Joel Silverman of Animal Planet fame, plus Arden Moore, whose podcast Oh Behave has more than 700,000 people tuning in from all over the world.


“Along with Debra, Joel, and Arden, all of our speakers will bring the information and inspiration that pet care providers need to succeed,” said Carmen Rustenbeck, founder and CEO of IBPSA. “Given the explosive pace at which this industry is growing and with the squeeze of increased competition, it has never been more vital for pet care business owners to make sure they have the cutting edge education to maximize profits and plan for the future.”


The conference will be accompanied by an industry trade show. It will also be preceded by four workshops happening September 30 – October 1 at the same location.


“With the summer busy season just ahead, once again October will be here before we know it,” said Rustenbeck. “Give yourself something to look forward to just on the other side of summer and make plans now to meet us in St. Louis.”
