The World Pet Association has announced that its pet industry trade show SuperZoo 2012 has increased booth space by 18 percent over last year's show, with 871 exhibiting pet product and services companies.
The show, which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, September 11-13, will feature new pet market trends like all natural and organic products, high-tech accessories like programmable feeders and automatic doors, mobile services for seniors and their pets, and more. SuperZoo University will present content in three targeted tracks of business development, animal wellness and technology/Internet.
Among many other opportunities, pet professionals at SuperZoo will be treated to a concert by Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo at the House of Blues, sponsored by petfood company P&G Pet Care. The performance will be held Tuesday, September 11, with general admission tickets available to attendees for US$10. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Pets in the Classroom program.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
