Educational sessions on the latest trends, professional roundtables and networking opportunities are the focus of the pet food industry’s upcoming international events – Petfood Forum and Petfood Workshop.
The forum is April 12-14, with the workshop immediately following, April 14-15. The events are at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.
Petfood Industry magazine said the return of these exclusive, premier events offers businesses a chance to grow globally. Leading industry experts and suppliers are among the featured guests.
The forum will also feature keynote speaker Joel Silverman, dog trainer and host of Animal Planet’s “Good Dog U” and author of “What Color is Your Dog?” In addition, Packaged Facts’ David Lummis will present the Petfood Market Outlook 2010-2011.
A new highlight is the executive roundtable – Why is safety the most critical issue for the pet food industry? The educational sessions focus on nutrition, marketing, packaging and safety.
The Petfood Workshop: Hands-on Nutrition, immediately after the forum, will focus on nutrition. Attendees can participate in interactive discussions on canine/feline nutrition, ingredients, processing considerations and formulation – plus an Ask the Nutrition Experts panel.
