The third annual Petcare Innovation Summit will take place virtually Dec. 15-16.

“As a virtual event, we are super excited to be able to expand our (now limitless) global pet innovation network,” officials said in a statement.

Topics will include pivoting retail operations to take advantage of online growth, maintaining your individual brand to stand out and thrive in the e-commerce boom, and developing hybrid strategies to maintain an online presence and drive traffic back to brick-and-mortar.

More than 20 speakers are scheduled, including Paul Allen, CEO of Woof Gang Bakery; Shawn Buckley, founder of JustFoodForDogs; David Sprinkle, research director at Packaged Facts; Garrett Smallwood, CEO of Wag!; and Scott Ragan, CEO of Meowijuana, a SmarterPaw Brand.

“Whether it’s the right time to sell, to acquire, to raise capital or even just plan for the future, this virtual summit will connect you with key strategic and financial contacts and arm you with the insights you need to get the wheels in motion,” officials said.
