Exhibitor Hosted Social

Ambassador Cheetah - Bringing the zoo to you...

The Exhibitor Hosted Social is the networking hub of the conference. At the social you will find tasty appetizers, drinks to quench your thirst, camaraderie with like professionals, and this fall...the Zoo! 

Wildlife Safari's cheetah outreach program is one of the ways it reaffirms their commitment to conservation and education. Wildlife Safari is the number two cheetah breeding center outside of Africa. The Safari works as a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums within the Species Survival Plan for cheetahs to ensure species propagation, variety, and survival. Some cheetahs become important ambassadors, representing their wild counterparts in various public appearances. Just about every day, Wildlife Safari Ambassador Cheetahs are visiting schools, hospitals, and other public places to instill the awe and wonder of wildlife conservation that we all share, in people of all ages.

Don't miss all the fun, food, and opportunity to meet one of the Wildlife Safari's Ambassador Cheetah's! It's an experience like no other!
