2022 Global Pet Expo

2022 Global Pet Expo | Just got back from the 2022 edition of the Global Pet Expo in Orlando Florida.

This is the first show since the beginning of the pandemic. The show was held in a different (smaller) space than previous years, due the absence of Chinese exhibitors. Attendees were having noticeable difficulty navigating the unfamiliar hall!

There seemed to be a significantly smaller turnout vs pre-pandemic levels. The attendees that DID show up were very enthusiastic nonetheless.

EVERY visitor to the Happy Howie’s booth had the same question: “When will the Meat Rolls be returning???”

I was happy to inform them that the meat rolls were indeed returning in the coming months! They were all relieved to hear that news and were willing to patiently wait for the “Return of the Rolls”!!

I saw many familiar faces from years past and met some new friends as well. Woof Gang Bakery was having a national meeting at the show with over 150 locations attending! MANY of these stores visited our booth during the show to learn about our products.

It was good to see things returning to normal and a good time was had by all!

Looking forward to next years show!
