What: Today, over half of the households in the United States own a pet (almost 80 million homes), which explains why the incredible growth of the pet industry has skyrocketed in the past five years. With new and innovative products continuously hitting the marketing, this booming business is not slowing down anytime soon. May 2’s NYC Re-tails & Sales Pet Expo will feature new products for 2017 and will be hosted once again by Nancy Hassel of American Pet Professionals and Dana Humphrey of Whitegate PR.
“With over 300 million pets in the U.S., that makes for a booming business,” said Humphrey, founder and president of Whitegate PR, “Pet owners today are not only going above and beyond to care for their animal companions, but are pampering them with the highest quality products like food, treats, grooming supplies, toys, bedding, pet tech items and more.”
Retailers, media and vendors will come together for this unique one-day expo next May to check out what’s new in the industry. Press and pet celebrities will be in attendance as well as retailers traveling from distances, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, to see and shop for products for their pet stores. In addition, Hassel and Humphrey are excited to announce Pet Age as this year’s Presenting Media Sponsor.
“Pet Age Magazine has been with us since our very first expo, and we are so thankful and excited to work with them again at the May 2017 event,” Humphrey said.
“May’s event is a great opportunity for pet retailers in the tri-state area to meet the makers of new and innovative pet products in a laid-back, fun, but business-focused atmosphere,” said Hassel, founder and president of American Pet Professionals. “Previous participants have had much success networking and establishing business connections at our events, and we know this year will be no different!”
