Backer’s 2014 Total Pet Expo Moves To One Floor Venue

July 1, 2014

Backer’s Total Pet Expo is moving to a larger, one-floor exhibit hall.

The hall will feature an easy-to-navigate, one-floor layout for the upcoming 2014 Total Pet Expo in Chicago. The show has been on two levels for the last 13 years.

“The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center’s premier 250,000-square-foot hall recently became available for both the 2014 and 2015 fall shows, so we decided to make the move,” said Colette Fairchild, the show’s director. “Moving to one floor makes the show much easier to navigate while allowing us more flexibility for our special interest areas such as our education stations and specialty pavilions. Based on the feedback we’ve received, we’re confident that the new layout will be well received by both buyers and exhibitors.”

The 2015 show, originally scheduled for Sept. 18-20, 2015, will move one week later to Sept. 25-27 to avoid a date conflict with both the PIJAC Canada show and Groom Expo in Hershey, Penn. The show will also feature a one floor layout.

The updated floor plan is now available at the show’s website,
