The company will highlight its latest products and marketing campaigns March 20-22 at Global Pet Expo, which will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Attendees can find the Spectrum Brands Global Pet Care exhibit at booth 1419.
“As one of the world’s leading pet care products companies, we’re committed to enhancing the lives of pets and those who care for them,” said Eric Kenney, vice president global pet care marketing and product development at Spectrum Brands, which has worldwide headquarters in Middleton, Wis. “We deliver on that commitment by investing in exciting product innovation, maintaining high quality standards and continuing to build on our strong relationships with the retailers that consumers depend on.”
To illustrate how its range of product offerings originate from a steady combination of innovation and passion, the Spectrum Brands booth will feature product demonstrations, videos, interactive exhibits and new displays that highlight why Spectrum Brands products are staples in pet-owning homes.
The company's Dingo, Good ‘n’ Fun, Better Belly, DreamBone and SmartBones products will bring pet retailers across all channels up close and personal with their lines of rawhide and rawhide-free dog chews. Using interactive panels, this area will highlight the innovation, research and development, top-notch manufacturing process and global reach that go into each and every chew, said company officials. Attendees can examine products from each line and see pure pet joy firsthand with a video from the new DreamBone Deliciously Distracting campaign.
The Tetra area will pay homage to the brand’s legacy of game-changing aquatics solutions that continue to be the cornerstones of successful fishkeeping, as well as unveil its newest innovation, the Tetra Connect WiFi-accessible aquarium kit, officials said. Each kit features Tetra Connect LED Lights and a Tetra Connect Feeder that consumers can control through the Tetra My Aquarium App on their smart devices. Tetra Connect technology will revolutionize the future of fishkeeping for consumers with the ability to automate environment essentials.
