Companies In The Rapidly Expanding Pet Industry Are Making The Change To Ecofriendly Tradeshow Booth Design February 22 2018
According to the 2017-2018 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 68% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 84.6 million U.S. homes! With an estimated $70 Billion USD in retail sales categories covering pet food, pet medicine, vet care, live animal purchases, pet grooming and boarding, the Pet Supply Industry continues to be one of America’s strongest service and retail sectors. As the Pet Industry’s largest annual trade show, the Global Pet Expo is considered to be one of the most important tradeshows in the rapidly expanding retail pet supplies industry.
The show is presented by the American Pet Products Association and the Pet Industry Distributors Association, and is attended by independent retailers, distributors, mass-market buyers, and other qualified professionals from around the world. In 2013, the show featured 964 exhibitors, 2,686 booths and more than 3,000 new product launches! Featuring thousands of new product entries in their “New Products Showcase”, this is the largest new products showcase at any pet product industry trade show in the world. The New Products Showcase “Best in Show” awards are the most coveted awards given in the industry.
For any new company interested in entering the pet industry, or for any established organization already offering pet related goods or services, the Global Pet Expo is an essential opportunity to engage with potential customers, existing customers, investors and fellow industry professionals. Custom tradeshow booths displaying your company’s brand, logo, messaging and imagery help convey your company’s philosophy, mission and define what sets you apart from all the other companies at the expo. However, there is more to conveying your organization’s values than just branding, messaging and signage. Your organization’s values are also explicitly conveyed through your choice of the booth design materials used in your tradeshow exhibit!
Often, potential customers and investors alike are interested in how a company’s values affect how they conduct their business. These values are shown in the way the organization chooses to portray themselves, including the choice of banners and booth design materials used in your company’s custom tradeshow booth. Contrary to popular belief, most traditional tradeshow banner stands, banners and booth construction materials are made of poisonous or unsustainable materials such as PVC plastics, vinyl banners and aluminum frames that all end up in landfills.
We believe the answer is in using biodegradable and non toxic materials that, through natural degradation, biodegrade back into the eco system. Our ultimate goal is to create exhibits that are made with 100% biodegradable and non toxic materials, while minimizing the fossil fuels required for transport. On past projects, we have achieved as much as 99% biodegradability and when recyclable materials must be used, we will ensure really are recycled. Choosing recyclable banners and sustainable booth design materials shows that a company doesn’t just “talk the talk” about ecofriendly business practices, but they also “walk the walk” by ensuring their booth design materials and banner stands are 100% recyclable and ecofriendly.
There are many companies in the pet industry who already show their committment to sustainable custom tradeshow booth design by utilizing ecofriendly and recyclable materials in their tradeshow booths. Boothster is proud to have worked on custom tradeshow booth designs for a variety of dynamic companies in the pet supplies sector including Earth Rated, The Honest Kitchen and OraVet!
