Don’t Miss the Professional Women’s Network Breakfast at Global Pet Expo 2018!

If you’re attending Global Pet Expo this March, you won’t want to miss the seventh annual Professional Women’s Network (PWN) Breakfast featuring entrepreneur, author and television personality Shama Hyder! This event is open to all Show attendees and is set to take place Friday, March 23rd at 8 a.m. at Global Pet Expo.

Hyder will share her knowledge and expertise in marketing in the Digital Age. Attendees will learn the five principles behind building a compelling personal brand and how to establish themselves as thought leaders across audiences.

In 2009, Hyder founded The Marketing Zen Group, a digital marketing agency with an emphasis on social media marketing. The Zen Group launched with only $1,500 and the company grew by 400 percent in the first year. Hyder now manages over 30 full-time team members, delivering social media and digital public relations services for clients that range from small businesses and nonprofit organizations to Fortune 500 companies across the globe. In addition to her firm’s success, Hyder has authored five books about marketing, social media and branding.

Hyder has received numerous awards including the prestigious Technology Titan Emerging Company CEO award. She was named one of the “Top 25 Entrepreneurs under 25” by Business Week in 2009, one of the “Top 30 Under 30” Entrepreneurs in America in 2014 by Inc. Magazine, and was recognized on the Forbes “30 Under 30” list of movers and shakers for 2015. LinkedIn named Hyder one of its “Top Voices” in Marketing & Social Media. Her web show Shama TV was awarded the “Hermes Gold award for Educational Programming in Electronic Media” and most recently she was awarded the “Excellence in Social Media Entrepreneurship” award for 2016 by Anokhi Media.

The PWN Breakfast is an opportunity that professionals will not want to miss! PWN promotes social and career development activities that result in greater success for the industry in total, and the breakfast will reflect just that. This event is not open to the public and attendees must wear their badge to access the event.

In addition to the many exclusive member benefits you receive as an APPA member, you also have access to Global Pet Expo, the Premier Industry Event. If you’ve never attended the Show, here are a few incredible facts about last year’s event: 

The thirteenth annual Global Pet Expo featured 343,700 net square feet of exhibit space, nearly 24,000 feet larger than 2016 to accommodate the growing number of exhibiting companies. That’s a lot of space to cover in three days – bring your walkin’ shoes!

Attendance at the premier industry event included 6,761 qualified buyers from 79 different countries – making Global Pet Expo a key trading opportunity for companies around the world. There were also 1,130 exhibiting companies, including 270 first-time exhibitors, covering more than 3,437 booths, giving buyers thousands of new products and trends to choose from!

The 2017 Show also marked the debut of country-specific pavilions. Previously, multiple countries exhibited together in one space on the Show Floor, but the new international model allowed participating country delegations dedicated space throughout the exhibit floor.

Global Pet Expo is the pet industry’s largest annual trade show.  The 2018 Show will be bigger and better than ever and will have everything you need all under one roof, so make your plans to attend today!

The 2018 booth application is available online, and buyer registration and qualification is now live.

We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Show!
