Global Pet Expo Named Fast Growing Trade Show

Global Pet Expo was named one of the 50 fastest-growing trade shows in the attendance category on Trade Show Executive's 2014 Fastest 50 list. The top 50 performers in the categories of exhibit space, exhibitors and attendance were selected based on the percentage of growth from 2012 to 2013.

"This year's Global Pet Expo happens to be our 10th anniversary, and it's extremely exciting to see how far we've come, not only in the last year alone, but since our inaugural event 10 years ago," said Andy Darmohraj, executive vice president and COO of America Pet Products Association (APPA). "We've grown tremendously in terms of exhibit space, exhibitors and attendance, but are thrilled to be recognized specifically for our outstanding attendance growth last year."

The Fastest 50 rankings were determined from information supplied and certified by senior executives with the association or private show organizer responsible for even and were evaluated by Trade Show Executive. All trade shows with a minimum of 15,000 net square feet held in the U.S. were eligible.
