A Show of Strength

We just returned to the office today after a great experience at Global Pet Expo last week—and by all accounts, the show went great. The exhibition floor buzzed with more buyers and booth space than ever, and the overall attitude shared by just about everyone at the show was very optimistic.

As the exclusive publishing partner of Global Pet Expo, Pet Business magazine’s staff was once again hard at work each day producing the Show Daily issues that were handed out to attendees and exhibitors at the show. This year, we added a dimension to our coverage of Global Pet Expo by setting up a dedicated page to our website (petbusiness.com/globalpetexpo), where visitors could view all of the latest headlines from the show, as well as many valuable editorial features that appeared in each day’s Show Daily issue.

For those retailers who were unable to attend this year’s Global Pet Expo (or if you did attend and just want to review the week that was), we invite you to check out the digital versions of all three Show Dailies. Just click on the cover to open each issue.
