Our best show recruitment tools have always been our members’ sales professionals who are calling on pet dealers every day. The income PIDA earns as a co-sponsor of Global Pet Expo allows us to offer programs such as Pet Store Pro free of charge to your customers, building strong independent businesses that can offer a unique level of personal service and knowledge.
Retailers: There's no better place to experience the power of the pet industry than at Global Pet Expo! Global Pet Expo is open to independent retailers, distributors, mass-market buyers, and other qualified professionals, making it the most important gathering of buyers, pet product manufacturers, and international attendees in the U.S. The Show is not open to the general public. For more information, visit www.globalpetexpo.org.
PIDA invests heavily in the Global Pet Expo seminars each year to bring in some of the top retail industry experts in the fields of customer service, marketing, social media, merchandising, sales, human resources, and management – topics aimed to help retailers grow their businesses. The better educated your retailers are, the better they will be as customers of your distribution company. Last year, 1,600 people took advantage of 30 hours of seminar programming. The lineup is packed with experts who know the challenges your customers face, and offer new ideas and tactics to face them. These business-building seminars are offered FREE to Global Pet Expo attendees.
Fewer than 10% of all Global Pet Expo attendees listed a distributor on their registration form last year. We know that there are many more retailers attending the show who were referred by our distributor members, and we need your help to spread the word about the show. Buyer brochures can be inserted in invoices or hand delivered to your customers during sales calls. Or, add a Global Pet Expo link to your website.
