“Being at the NYC Re-tails and Sales Pet Expo was an amazing event for pet product companies like VetIQ because we
were able to showcase items such as Minties Dental Treats, Delightibles cat treats and VetGuard Plus Flea & Tick products at a central location where dozens of media, bloggers, consumers, retailers, and other businesses within the pet industry can learn about the products and get immediate feedback about our company. Vet IQ was able to attain numerous contacts to help further spread the word about our current and new products through the NYC Re-tails and Sales Pet Expo events!” ~ Dr. Liz Hanson, DVM
“Dana Humphrey of Whitegate PR and Nancy Hassel of American Pet Professionals are always finding ways to support the community. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals was honored to be a part of the NYC Re-tails and Sales Pet Expo and to have its New York City Feral Cat Initiative (NYCFCI) highlighted during the event. Our organization was able to raise awareness and funds for this critically important program.” ~ Stephanie Mattera, Spokesperson, Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals
“The 1st annual, New York Retails and Sales Expo was a perfect opportunity for Fresh & Fluffy All Natural Dry Dog/Cat Shampoo to be introduced the tri-state market and thanks to you ladies, Nancy and Dana, we were able to accomplish our objective. Although the weather wasn’t ideal, we were pleasantly surprised to see the number of retailers who attended. That’s a testament to aggressive marketing by Long Island Pet Professionals and WhitegatePR. Because of your efforts, we can proudly say Fresh & Fluffy is available in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. It was well worth the flight from Houston to New York!” ~ Rod Thomas, Fresh and Fluffy.
“The new NYC Sales Expo was a great opportunity for companies making products in the US to speak with retailers in the Tri-state area. Because the show is smaller and intimate it gives retailers a chance to get in-depth information from manufacturers. Nancy and Dana did a good job with getting the word out. It’s a good place for small and large manufacturers to speak one-on-one with retailers when they are not overwhelmed, as most are, at the larger trade shows.” ~ Wendy Shankin-Cohen, President, Dr. Harvey’s.
“The NYC Retails & Sales Pet Expo was the best pet expo I have ever done. Our sales numbers for a one day event were incredible. Our product was a perfect match for the Made in the USA theme of the show, as all of our pet products are made and the ingredients sourced right here from local farms – and we are Made in the USA, Certified as well. We are excited to have Chasing our Tails be a vendor at the upcoming show in October in NYC and look forward to meeting many new retailers!” ~ Stephen Trachtenberg, Chasing Our Tails.
“It was a snowy, rainy day in Manhattan when the 1st annual Made in the USA expo was launched. Even though most of us were skeptical about the possible turn out, I personally was not concerned. Having been a part of both Nancy and Dana’s events before I knew it was going to be good. I made many contacts with both media and retailers. That lead to opportunities I never would have had if I was not in attendance. However, the best part was the retailers that attended placed orders and decent size orders. Like always Nancy and Dana put on a great show and I welcome being a part of the 2nd annual Made in the USA.” ~ Kim Loper, Life is Grruff
