On March 20th, the Pet Food Experts sales team made their way down to sunny Orlando, Florida for their National Sales Meeting! The outside sales teams from the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Pacific Northwest joined with the sales management team, inside sales supervisors, and Michael Baker for two days of sharing their experiences in the field and brainstorming ways to better serve our independent pet retailers.

After their meetings were finished, the team spent a day at Global Pet Expo at the Orange County Convention Center. They had the opportunity to connect with their customers, reunite with their favorite manufacturers, and check out the latest and most exciting products in the pet industry. The Northeast team had some extra fun with a scavenger hunt!
