Global Pet Expo 2016’s Academy Seminars See Attendance Increase
The American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), co-presenters of Global Pet Expo, announced that the 2016 Global Pet Expo Academy Seminars, sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, were attended by more than 1,400 participants, a 20 percent increase over last year.
Attendees raved that the valuable, engaging information presented at these diverse seminars provided practical solutions that could be put to use in the workplace, and ultimately would help drive business in the pet industry, according to both organizations. Participants had 31 sessions featuring 11 speakers from which to choose; instructors included many of pet retailing’s best-known and most-admired authorities in marketing, merchandising, operations, finance and technology.
“These sessions are packed with useful tips and expert advice from top retailing authors, consultants and speakers,” said Steve King, PIDA president. “From hundreds of best practices to details about no- and low-cost apps and online tools, attendees garnered information that they could put to use immediately. We’re very proud to offer this unique program and look forward to continued success in the coming years.”
