    About The Pet Show

    The Pet Show is Australia’s first national pet show.

    A multi-zone consumer show, it enables potential pet owners, existing pet owners and animal lovers of all kinds to immerse themselves in all-things pets.

    The event’s vision is to create the perfect pet parent experience incorporating education, entertainment, and products for dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles and small animals.

    “We’re excited to be back in Sydney where it all started for the Pet Show 12 months ago,” says The Pet Show Managing Director, Cameron Just.

    “After first launching the event, we received an overwhelmingly positive response from consumers and experienced unprecedented demand for tickets when we headed interstate to Brisbane and Melbourne.

    “It was incredible to see the appetite for a show that championed positive pet parenting and gave Aussies the chance to explore both traditional and non-traditional pets.

    “The past three events have been incredible, but we want to raise the bar even higher.

    “That’s why this show will not only see the return of many fan favourites but also, the addition of new elements to the Pet Show.”

    In addition to expert presentations and retail opportunities, The Pet Show has announced that Dalua Reef Town will be a new additional to the 2023 line up of exhibitors.

    A groundbreaking innovation in the world of saltwater and reef aquariums, Reef Town is a meticulously crafted, self-contained ecosystem that replicates the beauty and diversity of a natural coral reef.

    Designed to captivate and engage visitors of all ages it will also serve as an educational platform, offering visitors valuable insights into the delicate balance of marine ecosystems and the pressing need for reef conservation.
