Another SUPERZOO is in the books and this one might have been the biggest ever. The Mandalay Bay conference center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosted over 10,000 retailers in the pet industry this year, many rolling out new, never-before-seen products for furred, feathered, and scaled friends.
SUPERZOO is a trade show and conference for the pet retail industry and is, unfortunately, not open to the public. It’s one of the largest annual events in the United States dedicated to pet professionals, including retailers, groomers, pet service providers, and manufacturers. SuperZoo provides a platform for industry players to showcase their products, attend educational sessions, network with other professionals, and stay updated on the latest trends in the pet industry.
Trends come and go in the pet industry just like any other, and walking around SUPERZOO gives an idea of what the discerning pet parent is looking for when it comes to caring for or spoiling their furry friends. These are just a few of the amazing products the iHeartDogs and iHeartCats team noticed this year.
