NYC Re-tails & Sales Expo Sets Date for 2018 Show
The 6th annual NYC Re-tails & Sales Pet Expo has announced its 2018 date. The boutique B2B tradeshow will be held on May 1 from 1 to 6 p.m. at Home Studio Inc. in New York. Hosted once again by Nancy Hassel of American Pet Professionals and Dana Humphrey of Whitegate PR, the NYC Re-tails & Sales Pet Expo will feature new products for 2018.
Media, pet retailers, groomers, veterinarians, social media and pet influencers will come together to learn about latest pet products available on the market. Press and pet celebrities will be in attendance, as well as retailers traveling from distances including Boston, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania to see and shop for products for their pet stores. In addition, Pet Age Magazine will be the Presenting Media Sponsor.
“Pet owners today have a parenting attitude towards their pets. In fact, the humanization of pets has become a global trend,” said Humphrey. “Because more people feel that their animals are part of their human family, they provide for them as they would other members of their household. This trend has most certainly influenced pet buying preferences, which is why higher quality products are in demand.”
In previous years, NYC Re-tails & Sales vendors have showcased everything from luxurious beds, nutritious food and treats, top-of-the-line grooming supplies, beautiful jewelry, stylish collars, durable leashes, innovative pet technology and more. In 2018, retailers will have the opportunity to participate in two educational sessions before the event.
“Each year, the NYC Re-tails & Sales Pet Expo has a bigger and better turnout than the year before,” said Hassel. “We love to watch participants network and establish connections in a fun, laid-back but business focused atmosphere.”
