Phillips Pet Food & Supplies to Hold Fall Buying Show & Educational Summit




(PRESS RELEASE) EASTON, PA – Phillips Pet Food & Supplies will hold its Fall Buying Show & Educational Summit on August 9 and 10 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. More than 100 vendor partners will showcase products, including pet food, supplies, treats, aquatics and reptile products, bird and small animal products and litter.

In addition to the Fall Buying Show in the South, Phillips hosted two other National Buying Shows in 2018 – the West Coast Show in California and the Spring Buying Show in Connecticut. Customers from around the country are invited to attend the shows for free; they are not limited by region. In addition, show book specials also extend to all customers (brand permitting), whether they attend a show or not.

“The Buying Shows are an opportunity for retailers to see and touch new products, learn about new trends and meet with manufacturers to ask questions.” said Bill Hooker, Senior Vice President, Sales, Phillips Pet Food & Supplies.

The Fall Buying Show features:

  • Educational Seminars on Endless Aisles, Phillips’ special ordering portal that allows independent pet specialty retailers to profitably offer online ordering to consumers, with the products drop-shipped to consumers’ homes with their names on the boxes
  • On-site promotions with cash back, including deep discounts on endcaps and bulk buys
  • Special  deals in the Fall Buying Show promotion book, available to retailers to who do and do not attend the show
  • New Item Area, where retailers can discover items being introduced into the market and be the first to sell them
  • Phillips Customer Appreciation Event (for vendors and retailers), being held Thursday, August 9, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
