H.H. Backer Postpones The 2015 Total Pet Expo Fall Show
H.H. Backer Associates Inc. announced today that the fall 2015 pet industry tradeshow will be postponed and re-positioned to better service industry changes. The next show was scheduled for Sep. 25-27, 2015, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
“This was a very challenging decision, as the pet industry has been dear to my heart for practically my entire life,” said Patty Backer, president. “But it is time for me to take a year off to explore other avenues of growth and creativity.”
Backer added that she would be part of “a new, exciting event for the industry” tentatively scheduled for 2016. “It’s truly a case of one door closing and another opening, and I’m really looking forward to this new venture,” she said.
Companies that have already contracted for booth space for the 2015 show will receive a full refund.
