PetQuest returns to Wilmington, Ohio this June for the 2015 expo! Again, the expo will be taking place at the dog friendly Roberts Conference Center June 25th-28th 2015, with brand new seminars and certification courses, as well as the three day trade show.
Thursday has been deemed “Certification Day” with three different day-long programs to choose from. There will be the always popular Brusher/Bather Certificate Program with Teri DiMarino, the AKC Poodle Class with Sue Zecco and we will be debuting Dr. Cliff’s Skin Certification Course. In this course you will learn everything there is to know about K9 skin and receive a certificate to display in your salon.
Thursday evening will feature a two hour Cat Grooming class with Amie Wright. Also on Thursday evening will be the demo portion of the AKC Poodle Class, which can be purchased separately from the day-long program but you would not receive the certificate for only attending the two hour demo.
On Friday we have many exciting demos by some of our very own Barkleigh Honors winners, who are the best of the best in the grooming industry! Also going on all day Friday will be the AKC Salon Certification course and Gary Wilkes will be presenting a day of Animal Behavior seminars. Friday evening will feature a Creative Certification course with Angela Kumpe and Lori Craig.
Saturday and Sunday will be filled with many other must-see seminars, going on all day. Gary Wilkes will be presenting more great animal behavior/handling/training seminars, and some other topics by industry experts include: business regulations, styling products, grooming tools, pet health, and lots of informative demos.
The trade show will begin Friday morning and run through Sunday. Come ready to shop and get educated on all of the latest products and tools. The silent auction will also be taking place in the trade show hall. All proceeds from the auction go to Gifts of Love International.
Grooming contests will be going all weekend and will be free to watch with admission to the trade show.
Sunday morning will feature the Rescue Round-Up Tournament and Sunday afternoon is the always prevalent Creative Styling competition.
So if you’re looking to learn something new, improve your skills, or just want to do some shopping, mark your calendars for June 25th-28th and we hope to see you there for PetQuest 2015!
