Asia Cat Expo 2024, which hosts activities ranging from cat shows to seminars, workshops and contests, was also held at the Suntec Convention Hall last year.

Tickets are required for Asia Cat Expo 2024. While you can get them on-site, you are encouraged to buy them online (S$6 for a one-day pass) because of limited venue capacity. Children below 12 years of age can enter for free with an accompanying adult.

Yes — you can bring your cat (only cats are allowed!), but you’ll have to put it in a box.

Here’s what to look out for at the Cat Expo Asia 2024:

Cat Grooming Competition

After a successful run last year, Asia Cat Expo 2024’s Cat Grooming Competition brings together amateur and professional groomers to compete for the title of best cat groomer.

You can sign up for one of two categories. The first is Open, which is unrestricted. The other is Advanced (Minimum Class B Certification from a recognised grooming institution or authority body AND/OR 5 years of cat grooming experience).

Contestants have till 31 May 2024 to register. You’ll need to pay an entry fee (S$150 – S$180).

Chat With a Vet by the Animal & Veterinary Service

Keen to learn how to take care of your cat? Or are you in two minds about getting a feline companion (now that cats have been permitted by HDB)? Don’t miss the chance! Now, you can have licensed vets from Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) answer your questions.

Free Microchipping for Cats

Microchipping refers to the process of placing a tiny computer chip beneath your cat’s skin, usually around the shoulder area. Just like your National Registration Identification Card (NRIC), it serves as a form of permanent identification.

If a cat gets lost and winds up at a pet shelter, authorities will be able to trace the owner.

Usually, microchipping your cat will set you back by S$50 – S$100, but you’ll be able to get it for free at the event. Register to secure a slot. Walk-ins will be subject to availability.
