The Pet Expo is being held in EXHIBIT HALL D and guests will want to enter the venue from the Convention Center’s side entrance on the WEST SIDE OF THE BLDG which faces Jefferson Avenue, NOT the side entrance facing Parks Avenue.

The VBCC and the Virginia Beach Pet Expo are committed to preserving our environment. As such, we make numerous efforts to minimize our carbon footprint. This means we work to reduce our energy consumption and waste, we recycle, purchase eco-friendly products, and we both encourage our clients, vendors and guests to help us conserve.

The VBCC rewards guests who carpool and drive energy-efficient vehicles by designating premium parking spaces specific to their use. By distinguishing guests who choose alternative methods of transportation including biking and riding Hampton Roads Transit‘s (HRT) hybrid buses, we both hope to not only make a difference in the Virginia Beach community, but also to be an example to others.
