SuperZoo Unveils Keynote Speaker and Entertainment

April 2, 2015

Thomas will share incredible stories of hardship, courage and perseverance that led him from the notorious Black Hawk Down mission to eventually receiving the American Patriot Award and becoming a nationally acclaimed military analyst.

From his experiences, Keni will inspire SuperZoo attendees to achieve their greatness by emphasizing the importance of tenacity and sound leadership in an increasingly competitive industry and help set the tone for the event. Using momentum from SuperZoo’s overwhelmingly popular inaugural keynote in 2014 with Daymond John from ABC Television’s Shark Tank, World Pet Association (WPA) hopes to gather over 2,500 pet professionals for this year’s keynote.

“We wanted to provide our attendees with an inspirational perspective that they otherwise wouldn’t have access to,” said Doug Poindexter, president of WPA, producer of SuperZoo. “Part of ‘working smarter’ is pulling resources from various fields. Though most of us will not face actual combat, the far-reaching lessons of Sergeant Keni’s experience can have a profound impact on helping us overcome the battles we do face. We are honored to present this keynote to SuperZoo.”

However, WPA did not stop there. In an effort to carry the theme of leadership throughout the three days, the first women’s rock band to write and perform their own songs, Heart, was signed as the musical entertainment for SuperZoo 2015. Recognized as pioneers for women in the music industry, together Ann and Nancy Wilson have sold over 35 million albums, earned their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Known for top hits “Crazy On You,” “These Dreams” and “Barracuda,” the private concert is open only to SuperZoo attendees and is expected to sell out, so attendees are encouraged to reserve tickets early through the SuperZoo website. The duo will perform at the House of Blues Mandalay Bay at 6:15pm on July 22, 2015.
