Our team is just settling back in after SuperZoo in Las Vegas. The show was jam packed with people, products, events, ideas and opportunities for everyone in the pet industry.
We love going to this show for lots of reasons. We touched base with our SuperZoo Crew post-show and got their thoughts on what the BEST part of the show was.
Stephanie Hulse, Key Account Manager
MY favorite part was how busy we were in the booth every day. We had a really fun 'Truth or Dare' party at the booth on the first night. Our friends and customers joined us and the beer was delicious. A great way to open a show.
Susie Kane, Sales Administrator
We launched Life is good Pet at the show. I loved that people thought it was a perfect match. Everyone loved the line and the colors. Their eyebrows lifted when they realized that it was Planet Dog behind the Life is good products! It was fun to see.
Jim Williams, Planet Dog Company Store Manager
One of Planet Dog’s stated values is “relationships” – by that we mean relationships with our employees, our customers, our vendors, our community, our Planet and, of course, our pets.
For me as a buyer for The Planet Dog Company Retail Store, I really value attending Pet Trade Shows like SuperZoo because it gives me the opportunity to further develop the relationships that I have with various vendors. We order from them and we talk on the phone, but there is so much to be gained by meeting them face to face, and by having the opportunity to touch and feel their various product offerings.
Monte Griffin, NEW Key Account Manager
The highlight for me was meeting my customers face to face and learning about their individual businesses. Overall, I think just seeing the excitement customers had in general about the Planet Dog products and how they loved having them in their locations, was eye opening for me.
Kristen Smith, Planet Dog Brand Ambassador and Executive Director of the Planet Dog Foundation
My favorite part is the same at every show – the opportunity to meet new customers, and reconnect with long-time ones – getting the chance for wonderful feedback – both positive and constructive. It is always so affirming to learn from and share with our customers – and to capture the great energy from our partners.
Linda McKinley, Key Account Manager
Working as a team. It is wonderful to see how Planet Dog has the ability to gather such liked-minded people to represent the brand. The passion in the Planet Dog booth is palpable. I also love, love, love seeing my customers - they are like seeing my good friends.
Stephie Volo, Co-CEO & Partner
I had several "favorite parts" about this show - but, I think my favorite part was being able to share our success through our partnership with Life is good with all of our customers.
It is always very humbling when speaking with our amazing customers; hearing their open, honest feedback, their happy stories and their excitement about Planet Dog. But, this year in particular was very humbling watching our customers experience both our booth and our award-winning products, meeting Monte for the first time and hearing the amazing feedback about our partnership with Life is good.
Really, it was an incredible experience for me to share this with our team. I wish our whole team could have been there to experience this.
Colleen McCracken, Co-CEO
• I love visiting the new product innovation booth at SuperZoo to see what new products are being developed in the pet industry. It is always great to see how companies are innovating and challenging the status quo for our four legged friends.
• I love talking to our customers and learning about how Planet Dog and our products fit their needs. It is always great to hear where we shine and what we can do better to service their needs
• I love spending time with our sales team; hearing their thoughts and concerns and having a chance to talk to them face to face about Planet Dog and where we are heading as a company.
• This year, the launch of Life is good Pet by Planet Dog was amazing! The reception was exceptional and the comments from customers regarding the synergies in missions between the 2 companies was great to hear because we truly believe it! Spending time with the Life is good sales team was another highlight of the Superzoo show!
Those were our favorite parts of the show. We hope you had as great of an experience as we did.
