PIDA and APPA to Host 2016 Management Conference and Supplier Trade Show
The Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA) (booth 2301) and American Pet Products Association (APPA) (booth 2401) will join forces to host the first-annual Pet Industry Management Conference and Supplier Trade Show next year. The show will be held Jan. 18-21, 2016 at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, in Tucson, Ariz.
PIDA’s president Steve King announced the collaboration with APPA during the 2015 PIDA Management Conference & 47th Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, Fla. “This will really inject a new spirit of collaboration into the partnership between PIDA and APPA,” King said. “The opportunity to expand this meeting with more APPA members will inject new life into the event.”
The PIDA Management Conference has been an annual pet industry institution for 47 years. A partnership between PIDA and APPA also led to the 2005 creation of The Global Pet Expo, which has become the largest annual pet industry trade show.
