The event hopes to see 1,000 exhibitors showcasing goods and services at its venue, Mandalay Bay. “We expect SuperZoo to remain the largest show in terms of buyer attendance, bringing more buying power to the show floor than ever before,” says Doug Poindexter, president of WPA. “Beyond that, we’re incredibly excited about the unsurpassed education sessions, top-notch keynote speaker and all the wonderful events that surround SuperZoo.”
The redesigned exhibit hall and two new halls offer visitors an additional 85,000 square feet of exhibit space to explore. More than 700 new product debuts will appear in the New Product Showcase.
Grooming education sessions will be available. Other talks cover rapid growth areas including daycare, boarding and dog training. Animal wellness sessions focus on small animal care in stores and best practices geared toward bird, reptile and fish.
A networking reception will take place on August 2 from 5-7pm. The WPA will present its 2016 Retailer of the Year Award and announce the winner of the ‘Show Us Your Good Works’ photo contest.
