Maybe you think that the time, expense and energy needed to attend a trade show isn’t worth it. But, what you may not realize is the wealth of information, education and connections that are available to trade show attendees.
Trade shows feature hundreds of exhibitors, showing off the very latest in pet products. Taking in a trade show marketplace allows you to spot new trends, compare products and vendors and take advantage of special pricing that vendors make available to show attendees. It’s also a great opportunity to build relationships with vendors and reps and find out what’s up and coming in the pet industry.
Education is another great benefit of attending a pet industry trade show. Education programs and seminars are designed to offer attendees effective business strategies, as well as pet-related knowledge. You can choose from topics such as Building your Mom & Pop business, Social Media Marketing, Blogging, Hiring Effective Employees, Merchandising and much more.
Networking at trade shows is not only fun but also a great way to make lasting contacts to grow your business. You get to meet others with your passion for animals and the industry. Consider attending one of the upcoming Pet Industry Trade Shows this fall – it will give you renewed energy, new ideas and business skills and all of the resources you need to put some great business-building strategies in place for the year to come.
Upcoming fall shows are SuperZoo on September 11-13 in Las Vegas and the H.H. Backer Christmas show, Oct. 12-14 in Chicago. For more details check out their websites at http://superzoo.org/ and http://www.hhbacker.com/christmastradeshow.asp.
