Next week I’m leaving the boys behind and catching a flight to Global Pet Expo in Orlando. I can’t wait – last year more than 900 exhibitors were there to launch 3,000 new products! I walked 18 miles in three days … and this year’s show will likely be even bigger. I’m packing comfortable shoes, grabbing my camera and press credentials, and getting ready to take you inside the most exciting pet products show of the year!
My focus is generally on pet travel gear, but I’m also happy to be your boots on the ground. Are there products you’re curious about or companies you’d like me to visit? Leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to track them down. With so many manufacturers under one roof, this is the perfect time to compare what’s available and get the low-down on what’s up and coming.
For live updates from the show and a sneak peak of the fantastic new products that will be hitting the shelves this Spring, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! I’ve also started playing with Pinterest, so I’ve set up a board to share the neat things I find. Check it out next week!
Our monthly newsletter, Waggin’ Trails, is usually delivery on the second Thursday of the month. But, since that coincides with my trip to Orlando, we’re going to push publication back by one week. Newsletter subscribers – please watch your inbox on the 20th for our March issue.
It may feel like January outside, but check the calendar and you’ll see that it really is March. And you know what that means … it’s almost time for our Best City for Pet Travelers tournament! Each year we host this lively event for our readers to determine their favorite pet friendly destination. We’ll be opening nominations on the blog next week, but our newsletter subscribers will get a bit of a jump-start on Friday. It’s time to start thinking about which city you’ll be backing this year!
