This year’s Global Pet Expo will host major anniversaries of two of the pet industry’s most prominent organizations, the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA).
During Global Pet Expo, which runs from March 21 to 23 in Orlando, APPA will celebrate its 60th anniversary while PIDA will celebrate its 50th.
“I can’t think of a more appropriate place to celebrate our anniversary than at Global Pet Expo. We have been partners with APPA on this show, among many other ventures, for years and we share the same mission of advancing our great industry and helping businesses succeed in this environment.”
— Steve King, President, PIDA
To mark the occasion, APPA has invited members, present and past, to submit stories, photos, or videos celebrating their experiences in the pet industry. Members are encouraged to submit their materials to APPA’s Facebook page or to post them to Twitter under the #APPAs60th hashtag.
