Pet Food Experts is celebrating the success of two recent trade shows.
The first "official" annual Mid-West Customer Appreciation Trade Show took place on Aug. 22, 2014. The event was relocated to a larger venue at the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois, due to the increased number of new vendors offered to the Mid-West customers. There were 60+ vendor booths and 300+ buyers at the show.
The seventh annual East Coast Customer Appreciation Trade Show occurred September 16â€“17, 2014. The event was held for the fourth year at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut. The show had 110+ vendors and 600+ buyers.
2015’s East Coast Customer Appreciation Trade Show will again be held at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort on Sept. 10â€“11, and the Mid-West show will be in late August (date to be determined) at the Schaumburg Convention Center location.
