As more and more pet retailers look for a ‘Made in America’ seal, a new boutique pet expo, will showcase American crafted and sourced pet products.

The NYC Re-tails & Sales Expo will be held Wed., Feb. 19, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Honda of Manhattan 627 11th Ave. in New York City.

This invite-only event will bring retailers and pet product makers face-to-face. Each retailer will have a scheduled appointment with each pet vendor on site.

“As more and more pet retailers look for that ‘Made in America’ seal, we are thrilled to bring you the first ever boutique pet expo, showcasing American crafted and sourced pet products!” Nancy E. Hassel, founder and President of Long Island Pet Professionals.  “This is something that hasn’t been done before and I am thrilled to partner with pet industry expert Dana Humphrey of Whitegate PR to bring this event to NYC and pet retailers and pet product makers face-to-face.”
