Since 2005, Global Pet Expo has been a leading pet industry event, bringing manufacturers, buyers, suppliers, and distributors worldwide to network and partner. The 2024 show, taking place March 20 to 22, 2024, in Orlando, Florida, is set to be a record-breaking year for expo co-presenters the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA).
The demand for exposure at Global Pet Expo is no surprise. With over 1,000 brands, manufacturers, importers, and suppliers to see, this year’s exhibit floor sold out faster than any other in history! The event also features the largest New Products Showcase in the industry, providing a platform for manufacturers to display their latest product innovations. In 2024, the New Product Showcase will be reimagined to provide an elevated browsing experience for buyers. The showcase is also an opportunity for participants to earn the coveted Best In Show title, for which buyers can vote on their favorite products in the Global Pet Expo mobile application.
Another exciting addition to the 2024 expo includes the Unleashed welcome party, which is open to all exhibitors and attendees of the event. Attendees may also attend the much-anticipated State of the Industry presentation featuring brand-new insights from the National Pet Owner’s Survey, along with economic forecasts for the pet industry through 2028.
“Innovation in Motion” is the theme of this year’s expo, but American Pet Product Association (APPA) leaders say the focus on innovation will continue beyond 2024.
“Global Pet Expo will deliver groundbreaking product development, creative tech advancements, and insights-driven research at our events – reflecting the exponential growth of the pet industry overall,” said APPA president and CEO Pete Scott.
