Groom Expo West, the world’s second largest grooming show, attracted 3,815 groomers and over 100 companies comprising almost 150 booths when it took place from February 4 to 7 at the Pasadena Convention Center.
The expo is one of eleven shows produced by Barkleigh Productions.
“From the start, this show was sort of an industry secret. It seemed like few people outside of the Southwest realized the size and scope of it,” said Todd Shelly, president of Barkleigh Productions. “The last few years it seems like the expo has gained a lot of attention. That is great news for the Southern California and Southwest groomers in that it now attracts more top industry speakers and a larger variety of vendors.”
The show featured a line-up of notable speakers, a huge selection of products from grooming industry vendors and GroomTeam USA-sanctioned contests.
Groom Expo West will take place next year from February 16 to 19 at the Pasadena Convention Center. Visit www.GroomExpoWest.com for more information.
