Pet Industry News and Views -- In person, real...
What a year! It was just over one year ago when we launched Pet Industry Advisory. We now have 2 successful events behind us and 3 ahead! I've had so much fun becoming part of the Pet Industry. I have over 20 years conference experience in other industries, and I can say with complete honesty, that the Pet Industry is by far the friendliest bunch I've worked with. I think it's because we all have pets in our lives. I for one, have two ancient labs who assist me in putting together these conferences.
I want to thank the wonderful advisors, speakers and delegates for pulling together, for the first time, to create events for the manufacturers of Vet & OTC Pharmaceuticals, Food, Treats and Supplements, Devices and Diagnostics and the savvy consultants and other providers who serve this market.
Everyone has had a great time and learned inside tips to help them with their jobs upon returning to their offices. I have it on record!
So, MARK YOU CALENDARS everyone for the next wave of PIA executive conferences:
Internet & Social Media Marketing designed exclusively for the Pet Industry, November 15-16, 2010, at the Rio, Las Vegas. www.attend.petindustryadvisory.com
Hot off the press & almost ready for launch: New Products, New Marketing & New Strategies for the Aging Pet Population & Senior Wellness -- an non-clinical Executive Business Forum, January 13-14, 2011 (right before NAVC), Orlando. Call me for details: 207-467-3564 or email email@example.com
And FINALLY... Our 2nd Annual Pet Industry Transformation -- Growth Trends & Strategies, Feb. 17-18, 2011 in Las Vegas. Last Year's event attracted over 70 Presidents and Senior Executives FROM ALL SIDES OF THE INDUSTRY who all said the conference was extremely valuable. For more information, contact me at 207-467-3564 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
So now, I'm back to recruiting the most interesting visionaries and change makers in the industry for our roster of speakers for the 2nd Annual Pet Industry Transformation. Do you know anyone who has a phenomenal story to tell about their success in the Pet Industry? Call me immediately! 207-467-3564.
The event is organized by GROWTH TRENDS & STRATEGIES -- We have documented 8 Growth Trends already. Don't miss this opportunity to jump ahead of the pack to find out what's the hottest new product and service innovation. This is something you WON'T find at any other event.
Until I see you in November, Warmest Regards,

Alternative Foods for Dogs & Cats
I was just reading our brochure for the Health & Wellness Conference and I was reminded of all the choices we have today about what we feed our pets.

They have some arthritis now, and Max, the eldest, has blown both knees, but I have 5 different pharmaceutical products to give him to...

Innovation is Key
You heard that right, innovation is key. Is anyone familiar with the Diffusion of Innovation theory (Rogers, 1964)? Well, basically it states that people just like manufacturers fall into categories in how they will assimilate with the current market place trends. These categories consist of early adopters, adopters, early majority, late majority and laggards. This is a great theory and can be...
