2024 Record Setting Attendance

When the pet care community’s A-listers attend the Pet Industry Leadership Summit for the first time, most leave certain that it won’t be their last. The 2024 Pet Industry Leadership Summit topped last year’s record-setting attendance numbers with nearly 300 attendees, including 46 new industry professionals from 39 new companies who joined us for the first time.

The Pet Industry Leadership Summit is the only high-level industry event that taps the collective expertise of top executives from every segment of the pet care channel. In contrast to our busy, boisterous trade shows, it’s an ideal place to exchange ideas and tackle problems in a relaxed, collaborative atmosphere. That’s why once you experience The Summit firsthand, you’ll want to keep coming back.

Over its nine-year history, The Summit has evolved into an all-inclusive event by opening our arms to the broader pet care community. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers alike are welcome. There is no membership requirement to attend.

Here’s what this year’s Summit attendees are saying:

“What a great place to meet with industry leaders. This is access you can’t get at other events.”

“Great opportunity for networking and learning!”

“The guest speakers wowed me, the policy education enlightened me, and the need for some serious innovation got me to amped up to full steam ahead.”

“The space given for networking was also extremely valuable to me as a first-timer.”

“Quality of sessions and most of the speakers were outstanding this year.”
