DOGTEK to Exhibit at the 2011 Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida



(Clearwater, Florida. December 20th, 2010) – DOGTEK is all set to Exhibit at the 2011 Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida. The industry show will be held from March 16th – 18th at the Orange County Convention Center. DOGTEK has doubled the size of their tradeshow display & area from last year’s GPE and will be located at Booth #1487. DOGTEK will be offering several show specials to distributors and wholesalers.


Global Pet Expo, the pet industry’s largest annual trade show, will feature the newest and most innovative pet products on the market today. With 62% of American households in the U.S. owning at least one pet, this is your opportunity to inform your audience of the hottest pet products before they hit store shelves. At this year’s show, DOGTEK will unveil their new line of electronic fencing, remote trainers and bark control devices.


More Than 800 Companies Expected to Feature Latest Innovations at the Pet Industry’s Largest Annual Trade Show, Demonstrating the Strength and Resilience of the Pet Industry.


According to the 2009 CEIR Index report released by the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR), the U.S. trade show industry experienced a 12.5 percent overall decline in 2009. Additionally, it was reported that the decline was four times greater than the largest previous loss of 3.1 percent in 2008. Data for the fourth quarter of 2009 showed declines in all four metrics of measurement, including net square feet (-12.3 percent); revenue (-13.2 percent); professional attendance (-4.1 percent); and number of exhibiting companies (-5.8 percent).


Statistics such as these had Global Pet Expo organizers working harder than ever to ensure that this show remained strong and provided the value it has built its reputation on for decades. Despite the fact that Global Pet Expo 2009 was a success and enjoyed a 2 percent increase in attendance, show organizers remained cautiously optimistic about this year’s event. This year’s Global Pet Expo, that took place March 25-27, 2010, enjoyed growth that completely exceeded organizers’ expectations with 803 exhibiting companies, 2,250 booths and total attendance up this year by an astonishing 10 percent. That totals more than 4,495 buyers – the highest buyer attendance ever at Global Pet Expo and a positive indicator that despite the economic downturn, this industry continues to stand strong.
