WPA Launches Two New Grooming Events
The World Pet Association (WPA), producers of SuperZoo and Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference, is launching two new events for groomers: WPA365 Groom and GroomBowl.
WPA365 Groom is a virtual grooming contest, and GroomBowl will be held at Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference 2021.
WPA365 Groom groomers may submit their best work via the new WPA365 Groom Facebook Group, which will be showcased in a gallery style format on the WPA365 Virtual platform. Judges will examine via photo submissions. The contest features two levels of competition, professional and amateur, six categories/classes, and hundreds of breeds are eligible.
Groomers can enter WPA365 Groom for free, and entries open Aug. 1, 2020.
Held as a separate standout event during Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference, GroomBowl will be a competition that combines grooming skills with gaming strategy for professional and amateur groomers. From industry legends (from across the globe) competing in the Professional Division to undiscovered talent in the Amateur Division, groomers will compete in this team-format, sporting style showdown to claim the GroomBowl Championship, said WPA officials. Applications for this team event will open Aug. 1, 2020.
Winners will be announced after the official launch of WPA365 this fall.
