BarkWorld Expo, here we come!

Today, we're flying to Atlanta to attend the 2013 BarkWorld Expo. If you're there, stop by and say hi to us! 

We're setting up the booth today and will most likely be there or mingling during the afternoon. The exhibit hall is officially open from 8:30 on Friday and Saturday, and I'd love to meet you!

I studied up a bit on BarkWorld. It is estimated that 78% of attendees have a profile for a pet on social media. My dogs have Facebook pages - good to hear they're not alone in this. Most of the visitors come from the continental US, but some travel all the way from Hawaii, Canada, Israel, Trinidad, and the United Kingdom.

Personally, besides meeting my online friends, I look forward to Victoria Stilwell - she is a keynote speaker. I don't have Animal Planet and had never heard of her before Lennox. Now, I admire her.

I will update the blog and upload photos as soon as I get the chance.

  2. Have a good time! We feel like we are missing out since so many friends are there and we are not.

    1. I think you would have had a great time, Emma. No worries though, before you know it it'll be time for BlogPaws again! =)
