If you’ve heard of Global Pet Expo before, you’ve also probably heard it referred to as the One Show to Attend. If you’re a newcomer, you may ask why? As the pet industry’s largest annual trade show featuring the newest, most innovative pet products in the market, we assure you that this is THE show to attend to secure a place in the $69 billion pet industry. This is also the first industry trade show of the year featuring more new product launches than can be found at any other industry event (more than 3,000!) Still not sold? Here are five more reasons to attend Global Pet Expo 2019:
1. Key Industry Insight from Experts
As a member of the pet industry, your business relies on staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends and best practices. With over 30 educational seminars to attend, Global Pet Expo Academy offers tips and expert advice from today’s most successful pet retailers. And best of all, the sessions are free!
2. See What’s New
Discover the latest and greatest pet products on the market in our New Products Showcase, where we’ll debut nearly 1,000 products. This year’s Showcase is 45,000 square feet – an impressive 15,000 square-feet larger than last year! Witness as the industry’s most creative and innovative efforts are presented in one central location on the Show Floor. Leave the Showcase feeling energized and inspired by the ingenuity that continues to fuel the pet industry.
3. Networking Opportunities
With more than 16,000 industry members in attendance, the thought of networking at Global can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we kick off the Show with a free networking reception, sponsored by Pets Add Life. Have a drink and a bite to eat with friends, old and new, in a fun and relaxed environment. It’s just what you need to break the ice with that industry contact you’ve been trying to connect with.
4. Get Those Steps in
With over 352,300 net square feet of exhibit space, you are guaranteed to reach your step goal walking around the Show Floor. In other words, that’s the equivalent of 16 football fields worth of aisles packed with the latest pet products just waiting to be explored! So, pack your comfy shoes and wearable fitness tracker and prepare to rack up those steps. (And, totally impress your friends!)
