Groom Expo is the world’s largest grooming show, welcoming thousands of pet professionals to the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania, every September. Groom Expo hosts dozens of educational seminars, exciting grooming competitions, and a weekend packed with extra events to meet and mingle with fellow pet professionals.
Do you own a pet care facility? Are you involved in grooming, boarding, training, breeding, exhibiting, handling, brushing, bathing, walking, helping, or understanding pets? Do you retail pet products to the pet-owning public? Do you need to improve your grooming or handling skills? Or learn how to retail or add retail to your mix of services? Then this is your place.
Groom Expo is for anyone who makes a full or part-time living from professional pet care... or is a serious hobbyist. Groomers, mobile groomers, kennel operators and kennel personnel, trainers, day care operators, veterinarians, pet retailers, animal behaviorists, shelter personnel, breeders, handlers, vet techs, or anyone involved in the pet industry will find a wealth of information, products and services to meet your needs.
Groom Expo is also home to exciting grooming competitions with generous cash awards! The PetSmart GroomOlympics are held, along with the following breed class competitions: Poodle, Salon Freestyle, Sporting/Terriers and More, All Other Purebreds, and Creative.
Groom Expo hosts the largest grooming product trade show in the world… with over 170 booths. Every clipper, shampoo, comb, table and tub is here, along with thousands of other pet care, boarding, natural and retail products.
Many exhibitors are pulling out all the stops. You will be able to see industry greats doing mini-groom sessions in several booths throughout the trade show. Groom Expo Trade Show will also feature the PetSmart GroomOlympics and the Groomer to Groomer Creative Styling contest.
