Women in the Pet Industry Network (WIPIN), an organization focused on women entrepreneurs in the pet industry, will host the first-ever women-focused conference and award show this summer. The Start of Something Big! Conference and Awards Show will be held Aug. 23-25 in Portland, Ore.
The conference will focus on women pet professionals connecting, partnering and collaborating for mutual benefit. "Until now, our members have mostly connected via digital communication, so we're very excited to bring our members together, face to face, for a weekend full of professional and educational events and networking opportunities," said Shawna Schuh, president of WIPIN.
Pet professionals from all career paths within the industry are invited to attend the conference and awards show, which will feature a variety of roundtable discussions and educational sessions.
