First Annual Everything Pets Expo Draws Record Attendance
(Cincinnati, OH) The Duke Energy Center debuted another successful new consumer show. Everything Pets was held on Friday, April 11, from 12:00pm-9:00pm, Saturday, April 12, from 10:00am-9:00pm, and Sunday, April 13, from 10:00am-6:00pm. It was the tri-state's largest expo focused on promoting caring and responsible pet ownership.
Everything Pets Expo, produced by Stout & Gallant Associates, boasts one of the largest attended first year consumer shows in the tri-state area and expects double digit growth in the next year. "Everything Pets Expo was one of the largest first year consumer shows at the Duke Energy Center," states Ric Booth, general manager of the Duke Energy Center. Everything Pets featured over 130 exhibitors. "We are very happy to have this show," said Booth. "As the largest convention facility in the region we want to appeal to a wide variety of people by hosting a wide variety of events."
Content was essential with over 170 seminars, two specialty stages, a mainstage, five themed featured areas, demonstrations and multiple interactive activities for the entire family. Monica Mitchell, executive producer for the expo, said that applying a new mind-set with more hands-on events equates into a better value. Drawing on expertise in special event management, the staff put equal emphasis on the show floor displays and events, to create an added advantage to the attendees as well as the exhibitors. Star power was added by landing the Midwest's only auditions for David Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks and appearances by the 2007 winner NBC's Clash of the Choir winners - Team Lachey, - the 90 Second Naturalist and executive director of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Thane Maynard, plus local television and radio personalities.
Everything Pets Expo is an educational and entertaining effort to promote responsible pet ownership through a family-centered show.

With the SPCA as the beneficiary sponsor, it increases awareness and interest in adopting pets from shelters and rescue organizations.
