The event, which will be moving to the North/South Building of the Orange County Convention Center, will feature numerous upgrades. Hotel reservations for Global Pet Expo will open July 1, with booth applications going live in mid-July and buyer registration available beginning Sept. 1.
At Global Pet Expo, more than 1,000 companies from around the world showcase the latest and greatest products available for all types of pets including dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, small animals and horses. The show features more than 3,000 product launches and nearly 300 first-time exhibiting companies. The New Products Showcase gives exhibitors the opportunity to highlight their newest products and gives attendees a chance to preview cutting-edge products hitting the industry in one location. The show is open to independent retailers, distributors, mass-market buyers and other qualified professionals.
“After almost two years of virtual meetings and digital interactions, we are elated to be immersed in the energy that only comes from connecting in person,” said Andy Darmohraj, EVP and COO of American Pet Products Association. “The trade show team has been hard at work behind the scenes making sure Global Pet Expo 2022 is the best yet. Now is the time to seize the opportunity – discover new products and trends, learn from the experts about what it takes to succeed and network with industry peers.”
