Global Pet Expo 2012, the annual pet products trade show presented by the American Pet Products Association and the Pet Industry Distributors Association, is set to break all previous show size records, with the highest number of booths sold to a record number of exhibitors, according to Andrew Darmohraj, senior vice president of the American Pet Products Association.
Global Pet Expo will feature 890 pet product exhibitors and 2,452 booths during the three-day event, taking place February 29 â€“ March 2, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, USA. Darmohraj also said that almost all of the show’s special sections have also sold out, some of which include: Natural Pet, Boutique, Everything Aquatic, International Pavilion and What’s New!
“We are thrilled at the consistent and impressive growth Global Pet Expo has enjoyed over the years. With more exhibitors and booths than ever, and an expectation for high attendance numbers, 2012 is shaping up to be our largest Show to date on many fronts,” said Darmohraj. “As the pet industry continues to expand, Global Pet Expo offers buyers the opportunity to see more new product launches than any other industry show. Global Pet Expo is the must-attend pet industry show of the year.”
