i'm going to the superzoo trade show in a few hours.

 

wish me luck, there's gotta be a reason why my LFS buddy is forcing me to go with him...

 

here's the press release:

 

SUPERZOO DEFINES SHOW ELEMENTS

TO FIT NEEDS OF ATTENDEES AND EXHIBITORS

 

 

ARCADIA, CA, March 11, 2003 - World Wide Pet Supply Association consistently searches and researches ways to better serve SuperZoo attendees and exhibitors.

 

As a result, there are some changes to SuperZoo 2003 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 11, 12 and 13. Show hours have been revised and are set for Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

As an incentive to attendees, SuperZoo offers free registration if done in advance on line at Superzoo.org

 

VIP Buyer Appointment Hours are set for 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. each day of the trade show. This schedule allows for exhibitors who want to meet a customer at their booth location prior to the show opening.

 

Once again SuperZoo will offer exhibitors the opportunity to meet privately with distributors on a first come, first serve basis. Because of this program’s outstanding success last year, there are even more distributors participating year. They include Apollo Pet/Pilgrim Pet, Boston’s Pet Supply, Central Pet, Jeffers, Newco, Quality Pet of California, S&S Supplies, Sierra Avian, Tidal Wave Distribution, Trico, United Pacific Pet and Western Pet Wholesalers.

 

Exhibitors will be able to make appointments via the internet beginning May 1. The exhibitors will be given the date the appointment calendar is available, and their password and link in April.

 

SuperZoo’s New Product Showcase is the largest west of the Mississippi, and is located at the entrance to the exhibit floor. This exhibit is always one of the most popular exhibits at the show.

 

Other popular show features will incorporate new elements for enhanced appeal and productivity. The Living Wall’s 6,600 square feet of exhibit space includes displays of live fish, reptiles and small animals.

 

The Pond and Backyard Showcase, sponsored by Rolf C. Hagen, spotlights the industry’s hottest growth category - ponds and backyard activities.

it WAS.

 

i snuck my camera in (no camera pass) and got some pictures. when i sort out what i can show and what i probably shouldn't, i'll post again. being at the convention, learning how things work, hearing what the companies have to say about their existing (and unreleased) products, hearing what companies have to say about other products has really changed a lot of my views on some of the behind the scenes aspects of this hobby. note: it had a great time ben, i hope you do too. :)

this tank was set up by one of the lighting companies (sorry i forget which) to show off their mh/pc setup. it was stocked with a couple thousand dollars worth of sps, clams, and pink ricordea. i wanted to cry (and stuff my pockets).
