With 2,366 booths sold and 822 exhibiting companies, Global Pet Expo 2011 is slated to be the largest event in the show's history, according to Andrew Darmohraj, senior vice president of the American Pet Products Association.
According to show organizers, all Global Pet Expo special sections are completely sold out, including Natural Pet, Boutique, Everything Aquatic, International Pavilion and What’s New!. “We are thrilled to report that Global Pet Expo is experiencing unprecedented growth,” said Darmohraj. “This speaks volumes to the strength of the pet industry and the significance of this show to exhibitors and buyers alike.”
The show will take place March 16 through 18 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, USA.
