Global Pet Expo Ranked Largest Pet Products Show
Global Pet Expo was recently ranked largest pet products show and 46th largest trade show in the U.S. by Trade Show Executive Magazine.
Global Pet Expo was recently ranked largest pet products show and 46th largest trade show in the U.S. during Trade Show Executive (TSE) Magazine’s Gold 100 Awards & Summit, which was held in late September in San Diego. The “Gold 100” recognizes the 100 largest shows that “Set the Gold Standard” for the trade show industry, according to organizers.
Global Pet Expo, presented by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), brought in 1,174 exhibitors and 7,029 buyers during its 2019 event in Orlando, Fla., in March. It covered 360,400 net square feet of exhibit space, more than 16,000 feet larger than the 2018 show, according to organizers.
“To be ranked among the top shows in the nation is a tremendous honor for our team,” said Andy Darmohraj, vice president and COO of APPA. “As the largest pet products trade show in the country, Global Pet Expo plays a significant role in supporting the growth of this $72 billion industry in the United States. We are dedicated to working year-round each and every year to improve the Global Pet Expo experience for all attendees. The show’s impressive, continued growth across the board has made it the must-attend industry event of the year.”
TSE has recognized Global Pet Expo every year for the past 10 years in its Gold 100 Awards. In 2015, the event was named TSE’s “Show of the Year,” formerly referred to as “The Greatest Show on Earth.”
Global Pet Expo 2020 will take place Feb. 26 – 28 in Orlando, Fla.
