SuperZoo 2018 will be held between June 26 and 28 next year at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
The announcement, recently made by show producers, the World Pet Association (WPA), marks a shift from the show’s usual July slot. The schedule shift will allow the show to include greater space for exhibits while also allowing partner hotels to accommodate 30% more attendees and exhibitors.
“SuperZoo has come a long way since it was a small regional show and we are thrilled to have more than 18,000 pet industry professionals join us each year in Las Vegas. We continue to grow year on year and are proud of the fact that we enjoy the most buyer participation of any trade show for the pet retail industry in North America. This continued growth has made it difficult to have enough sleeping rooms at the Mandalay properties and exhibit space for new exhibitors and growth of our existing exhibitors’ booths. This move will allow us to create a better experience for both our exhibitors and attendees. We’re delighted to continue our excellent relationship with Mandalay Bay, and are looking forward to putting together a stellar event in 2018.”
