Trade show organizer H.H. Backer Associates announced several changes to its annual autumn pet industry show in Chicago.
Backer says the show will have new attractions, a fresh graphic look and a new name, Backer's Total Pet Expo . The event will be held on September 20-22 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, USA. It will feature more than 500 exhibitors on two floors. Backer's spring trade show, April 9-11, 2014, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, will also be renamed Total Pet Expo.
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.
