(PRESS RELEASE) American Pet Products Association (APPA) COO and Executive Vice President Andy Darmohraj announced that amid continued safety concerns resulting from the global pandemic, Global Pet Expo will be moving to a fully digital experience. Presented by APPA and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), Global Pet Expo Digital Access will take place March 24-26, 2021, bridging the 2020 and 2022 live events.

While details for the digital event are being finalized, show organizers are offering a variety of options for exhibitors. Exhibitors can choose from three packages with opportunities for participation in Global Pet Expo Digital Access, as well as the 2022 show. In an effort to provide exhibitors ample time to review and make an informed decision about these options, the cancellation deadline has been extended to Jan. 15, 2021. Additionally, every current exhibiting company will receive a call from trade show staff ahead of the cancellation deadline to further explain these options.

Global Pet Expo Digital Access is open to independent retailers, distributors, mass-market buyers and other qualified professionals (buyers). Online registration is live, and buyers that have already successfully registered for Global Pet Expo 2021 will automatically be registered to attend the digital event. Full details about the digital access platform will be released soon.
