Global Pet Expo named one of 50 fastest-growing tradeshows

Expo ranks in attendance category

Global Pet Expo has been named to Trade Show Executive's 2014 list of 50 fastest-growing trade shows in the attendance category. The top 50 performers in the categories of exhibit space, exhibitors and attendance were selected based on the percentage of growth from 2012 to 2013.

"This year's Global Pet Expo happens to be our 10th anniversary and it's extremely exiting to see how far we've come, not only in the last year alone, but since our inaugural event 10 years ago," said Andy Darmohraj, American Pet Products Association executive vice president and COO. "We've grown tremendously in terms of exhibit space, exhibitors and attendance, but are thrilled to be recognized specifically for our outstanding attendance growth last year."

The shows in each category eclipsed all other shows in 2013 by growing dramatically more in net square feet (nsf) of exhibit space, exhibitors and attendance during 2013. While the benchmark growth for the average trade show in 2013 was 2.2% in nsf, 2% in exhibitors and 0.7% in attendance, Global Pet Expo grew 8% in nsf, 7.5% in exhibitors and 10% in attendance.
