The ZippyPaws team recently got back from the SuperZoo Convention and we are thrilled with the outcome! The National Show for Pet Retailers, SuperZoo, is the most popular event for independent pet store retailers in North America. Superzoo is a large trade show where pet professionals, manufacturers, and buyers all meet for three days to admire cute puppies! Oh and also discuss business! 😉 The SuperZoo Convention was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, from July 21-23, 2015.
Last year, we attended our very first SuperZoo Convention and what a wonderful experience that was! We got to meet our supportive customers, business starters and innovative thinkers. For the first time, ZippyPaws introduced some of our toy designs and the responses were great! So we knew we had step it up a notch at this year’s SuperZoo Convention. Not only did we plan on unveiling new ZippyPaws toys at Superzoo, but we also doubled our booth space to accommodate all of our Zippy products.
At this year’s Superzoo, we introduced some of our beloved and newly designed products:
1. Raved-about Squeakie Emojiz, which offers three of our favorite emoticons. Let’s just say, we aren’t the only ones who can’t get enough of these silly guys.
2. Brand new line of Squeakie Flattiez, no-stuffing toys containing 9 round squeakers.
3. One-of-a-kind Climber’s leashes, made of the same material as mountain climbing rope and just as reliable. We expanded the line by offering more color options, a lightweight option for not-so-big dogs, and added slip leads, which were a huge hit for groomers and rescue groups.
4. No-stuffing Squeaky Snakes, so popular we had to create a new green color!
5. Holiday toys, of course! Because who doesn’t want to be on Santa’s nice list?!
As a show special, we offered some toy packs for 30% off – what a deal for the high-quality products we create! Unfortunately, our 6 feet tall buddy, Joe the giant Jiggler wasn’t able to attend this year. He was away on some NUTTY business! But we’re still so glad we got to meet all the wonderful people who stopped by our booth!
We want to thank everyone for their continued support. Ever since 2011, our company has consistently grown 300% year-over-year.
Another successful SuperZoo for the books! We are definitely looking forward to next year’s SuperZoo Convention to showcase more of our products and meet more talented and amazing entrepreneurs! Be sure to stop by our booth if you so happen to be at SuperZoo next year!
