Win a 25 year pass to Groom Expo!

One lucky Groom Expo attendee will win this amazing prize worth nearly $10,000

By Groomer to Groomer

Imagine taking all the classes you want at Groom Expo for the next 25 years and not having to pay a cent. For one lucky groomer that is going to be a reality. This year, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Groom Expo, Barkleigh will be rewarding one lucky groomer a 25 year Basic Do-it-All pass to Groom Expo. That is nearly $10,000 in value!

That includes every seminar offered at every Groom Expo from 2014 through 2038. In 2013 there is the possibility of taking 19 hours of classes. At that rate, that would be nearly 500 hours of education at no charge.

“When groomers hear about this, the first question everyone seems to ask is ‘What if I’m not grooming for the next 25 years,’ ’’ Barkleigh president Todd Shelly states. Barkleigh will allow a one-time transfer of the pass. “I could see a situation where many years from now, the winner retires and gives the pass to a younger groomer.”

Everybody who pre-registers for any educational seminar will be eligible to win. Pre-registration ends Tuesday, Sept. 17th 8:00AM EST. The winner will be announced before the Groomer to Groomer Creative Contest on Sunday.  You do not have to be present to win. The winner will be determined through a drawing.

Groom Expo is the world’s largest grooming show, held September 19-22 at the Hershey Lodge and convention Center in Hershey, PA. Last year, the show drew nearly 200 vendor booths and over 4,500 groomers. For more information go to

    What a wonderful prize! I would love something like this. September is a nice time for these conventions. So hard to get away in the spring or summer, fall is best and Hershey is a great place to have it. Thank you so much for keeping it there, for choosing such a wonderful place to have it and a beautiful time of year. Such a nice thing to do for all of us overworked groomers out here :)
