Some of the innovative and emerging trends in the pet industry include alternative proteins such as cricket protein or lab-grown mouse meat cat treats. The show welcomes any pet product manufacturers that believe in eco and earth friendly production and business practices to not only reduce our carbon footprint, but impact the environment in a positive way. Health focused start-ups and new businesses that empower pet parents to make smart choices for their pets and the earth are invited to exhibit.

Past year’s themes have included a focus on all-natural, pet tech, Made In the USA pet products, and the trend towards CBD in 2019, with attendees exceeding 200 retailers from the NYC tri-state area.April’s NYC Re-Tails and Sales Pet Expo will be held again at Home Studios Inc., a beautiful sunny venue a few blocks north of Union Square located at 873 Broadway (@18th Street) in Manhattan.

“What pet parents, especially millennials are looking for when shopping for their pets is something that solves all their concerns – their pet’s health and longevity as well as the impact on this planet,” says Nancy Hassel, president of American Pet Professionals.

Pet savvy, urban consumers who love sustainability are now looking for regenerative and upcycled non-waste options and will be confronting retailers about this. Now is the time for retailers to enhance their planet friendly options to prepare for the future.

“Retailers in the New York area are starting to make a point to be, and to promote and sell, environmentally pet-friendly and safe products – that help vs. hurt the planet,” says Dana Humphrey, “The Pet Lady”.

Repurposed and rescued materials transformed in to a positive usable item, is one of the ways that manufacturers are looking to make goods, which help our planet thrive. Additionally, those making human-grade food or treats for pets that take into account alternative, renewable proteins are right on track for the future of the pet care industry. The new definition of luxury is how well we allare, from snout to tail.

The vendor lineup currently includes: Asher + Arden, Brilliant Salmon Oil, Chews Happiness, Earth Animal, Healthy Line, Jaxxgear, Pampered Pet Treats and Rogue Pet Science. In addition,Pets Plus Magazine will be this year’s partner and media sponsor.

In celebration of a more sustainable planet, there will be no goodie bags at April 27th’s event. BYOB! Bring your own reusable goodie bag to collect information and maybe even some samples from our vendors.
