Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference, the Southeast’s largest competition and trade show for professional pet stylists, saw a six percent spike in attendance at its newly expanded event at the Georgia International Convention Center, featuring a larger show floor and additional seminars.
The new location meant attendees of the show, which is put on by the World Pet Association (WPA), were able to observe North America’s largest grooming competitions on the show floor while browsing products. 13 contests took place featuring 122 entrants and 290 dogs.
“The new venue, robust grooming competitions, expanded education sessions and overwhelming sense of community made for an incredible event,” said Doug Poindexter, President of the WPA. “It’s important for the World Pet Association to provide a fun and professional setting for attendees to further their grooming education and offer products and services to boost their business.”
Atlanta Pet Fair & Conference offered 72 seminars in subjects ranging from mobile grooming and cat grooming to treating skin and coat problems.
