It’s been nearly two weeks since the pet industry left Orlando, Fla., where this year’s Global Pet Expo took place. According to Global Pet Expo’s organizers, it was the biggest show yet, which may explain why I’m still organizing my notes and emails from the show—and I imagine I’m not alone.
The show’s record-breaking buyers (5,597) and exhibitors (985) took to social media to share their experiences from the show floor. As part of Pet Business magazine’s post-show coverage (see more in our May issue), I perused countless tweets from industry members to get some insight about what they thought the hottest happenings at the show were. (You can take a look at our Twitter and Instagram feeds to see the show from our perspective.)
Here’s a roundup of tweets from Global Pet Expo attendees and exhibitors:
