SuperZoo, the largest North American pet retail trade show and conference produced by World Pet Association (WPA), is pleased to announce that registration for the 2019 annual industry event is now open.
SuperZoo will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, August 20–22, with education sessions on August 19–22. SuperZoo provides pet professionals with access to the most comprehensive collection of upcoming product trends, emerging lines, technology, new segments, proven best sellers and unexpected finds that will help them stand out from the competition.
SuperZoo is the one event that allows pet product retailers to compare quality and price across more than 1,200 exhibitors and discover new, market-ready merchandise among the more than 800 new products launched in SuperZoo’s New Product Showcase.
“The in-person, firsthand shopping experience that SuperZoo presents offers retailers the unique opportunity to discover, evaluate and bring fresh products and rare finds into their merchandising mix,” said Jacinthe Moreau, WPA president.
“SuperZoo gives pet industry professionals access to the latest pet trends, industry-leading education and a global network with which to build lasting, collaborative business relationships, giving them the tools they need to successfully compete in today’s marketplace.”
In addition to product discovery, the most comprehensive educational programming in the pet industry is a key feature of SuperZoo—there is something for every attendee looking to sharpen their skills. Sessions span four main content areas: retail, grooming, service industry and animal wellness. Each session gives attendees access to a wide variety of topics including staff training, human resources, leadership, social media, customer service, and marketing, among others.
“The extensive lineup of forward thinking, business-building education offerings will allow retailers to refine their business acumen, learn best and next business practices and set themselves up for success,” commented Moreau.
Tapping into SuperZoo’s passionate community provides attendees with unparalleled support. These face-to-face opportunities to build relationships and share experiences with like-minded professionals deliver actionable insights and takeaways that have a meaningful impact on growing a healthy business.
The popular Networking Reception on Tuesday, August 20—the opening day of the trade show—will include many organic opportunities to interact and mingle with industry peers. More networking awaits at the concert on Wednesday, August 21, featuring REO Speedwagon.
