ICDevents to Host Pet Connections Expo in Pennsylvania
International Conference Development, LLC (ICDevents) will host the 2017 Pet Connections Expo on October 3 to 4 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa.
The first-annual event will bring together pet industry buyers and suppliers from around the mid-Atlantic, Northeast as well as the entire country.
“We are happy to offer a unique B2B event comprised of two days of buying, trend spotting, treasure hunting and business building inspiration for independent retailers,” said Bill Doherty, Event Director, ICDevents. “Our unique educational sessions will focus on healthy pet products and trends that can help independent pet retailers compete with larger brick and mortars. In addition, we will focus on the challenges and opportunities for increased profits in an ever-changing marketplace.”
Pet Connections Expo will also feature an Awards Program and some educational sessions that are designed to help small pet retailers to compete with the large brick and mortars, as well as the online pet stores.
"I am excited about the upcoming Pet Connections Expo taking place in Oaks, Pa. in the fall of 2017," said Nancy E. Hassel, founder and president of American Pet Professionals. "Many of our members of American Pet Professionals are looking forward to it. A new mid-Atlantic area trade show for pet retailers and pet manufacturers will be a great addition to our industry. Personally, it will be nice to be able to drive to this event for us in the northeast. We are thrilled to be working with the Pet Connections and look forward to a successful show.”
