Hollywood isn’t the only one buzzing with awards lately. We have a few of our own to tout….luckily, we didn’t have to fast before accepting these ones!
Global Pet Expo is a WINNER!!!
We’re pleased to announce Global Pet Expo was recently honored by the International Association of Exhibitors & Events (IAEE) and took home two awards from the organization’s annual Art of the Show Competition. Additionally, Global Pet Expo also received the Grand Award for Best Use of Social Media by Trade Show Executive, a leading trade industry magazine.
Honored within the “over 150,000 net square feet” category, Global Pet Expo was awarded for Exhibit Sales Brochure & Prospectus and Sponsorship Development Program by IAEE. The Art of the Show Competition recognizes excellence in promotional materials for the exhibitions and events industry and includes 15 different categories of competition spanning three show sizes. Our year-round marketing plays a key role in the success of Global Pet Expo and we are honored to receive such acknowledgment from the leading association for the exhibition industry.
“The level of excellence from all the entries-and of course, the winners- is a real testament to how strong this industry really is.”

Taking home Trade Show Executive’s Grand Award for Best Use of Social Media, Global Pet Expo was honored for results from its 2013 Show, demonstrating the key role social media plays in the Show’s success. Pre-show communication as well as onsite, real-time social media engagement has helped connect with attendees in such a way that it enhances their Show experience. Contributing to success, the Global Pet Expo YouTube channel grew 58% from the previous year as thousands tuned in daily to stay up-to-date on Show news, #globalpetexpo was one of the top trending stories on Twitter throughout the Show week, and Global Pet Expo’s Twitter encouraged buyers, exhibitors and media to join the conversation and generated 13.5 million impressions.
We look forward to connecting with you at the 2015 Show and hope to see you there!
