New Product Showcase
Showcasing innovative products introduced to the Pet Industry since July 2017
Location assignments are via a lottery selection. All entries must be submitted by Booth Staff Leaders by 5:00pm Pacific Time, May 24, 2018* or until all spaces are filled, to be entered in the New Product Showcase through SuperZoo Exhibitor Registration website only.
By default, company item entries will be placed side by side per category and space type (Cat, Dog, Bird, etc. and Table Top, Floor, etc.).
When Registering and selecting the “Category” choose the location you wish your product or display to be judged within. WPA reserves the right to reassign any entries as deemed appropriate per category.
If you do not purchase the necessary amount of space for your display and it is shown to not fit the requirements when you arrive at the show, you will be required to reduce your display or forfeit your original space or purchase additional space and will be assigned the next available space to place your item; if space is available.
Item Check In: You must bring your product to the NPS between 10am and 4pm on Monday, June 25. If you arrive after this time, you may forfeit your original assigned space and be reassigned only if space is available or completely forfeit from NPS area if there is no space available. No refunds will be granted. After 4:30pm the area will be open for onsite entries to sign up (based on space availability). Exhibitors will receive a Product Placement ID Card that will be placed with each item entry. Placement ID Card will contain Product Name, Company Name and Booth Number.
If your item does not fit within the required space, you must purchase additional space to accommodate your product.
