One of the biggest struggles as an independent pet retailer is discovering the products and services that can make your store stand out and make pet parents walk in. Find out how to keep your store growing at SuperZoo—taking place from June 26-28 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada—where you’ll discover something unique around every corner.


Established by World Pet Association in 1950 as an annual gathering place for the entire industry to connect, learn, and do business, SuperZoo is the most well-attended industry show in North America. Ever since the show began its tradition of bringing the industry together, the show has continued to grow—and boasts record buyers and education hours each year. With its rich education offerings, easy-to-shop show floor, and energizing, fun-filled atmosphere, the annual trade show is one of North America’s premier pet retail events.


There are so many reasons to attend SuperZoo, but here are our top five:

  1. Sneak peeks at new products: With more than 1,000 exhibitors, you’ll get an instant snapshot of all the trendsetting products your customers will be talking about in 2018. More than 820 new products make their debut each year—meaning attendees see them first!
  2. Deals and discounts: As an attendee, you’re on the inside track to savings with exclusive show-only opportunities to save before the busy holiday season.
