Petfood Forum 2013 is now accepting papers for this global petfood industry event, being held April 15-17 at the Renaissance Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA.
Petfood Forum offers multiple learning sessions from petfood industry experts, networking opportunities and a large exhibit hall with petfood industry suppliers.
