P3 pet trade show opens online registration, announces call for seminar speakers

Making its debut Aug. 24-25, 2016, at Chicago’s Navy Pier, the new P3|Progressive Pet Products trade show has officially opened advance online attendee registration and announced a call for speakers for the educational seminar series, “Focus on the Future.” P3 will bring the industry’s newest pet products, exceptional educational programming and networking events together in one of America’s top destination cities.

“We’ve been very pleased with the positive response and industry feedback we’re received since announcing the new P3 show,” said Stacey Barrett Brooks, show director, P3. “Top distributors, manufacturers and industry newcomers are already reserving space on the show floor and we’re now moving into full gear with show promotions and programming.”

To make attendee registration and entry as easy as possible, while also ensuring the wholesale integrity of the new event, P3 is offering ExpressPass registration to credentialed retailers involved in pet-related businesses. Rather than receiving a badge in advance by mail, retailers can receive an ExpressPass via email to scan with onsite readers and quickly print out badge(s) when they arrive at the show.

To qualify for and receive the ExpressPass, retailers can visit, complete the online application and upload two forms of business ID for verification. Credentials include a required wholesale invoice from a manufacturer or distributor and one additional item, which can include a copy of business lease, retail business license, business tax ID, business utility bill, yellow page listing or website link.

Retailer education will be an integral part of the inaugural P3 edition with a program lineup including morning keynote presentations and additional sessions scheduled throughout the show centered around the theme “Focus on the Future.” P3 is now accepting speaking proposals until the deadline of Nov. 15, 2015. For complete details on the application and selection process, potential speakers can visit the “Education/Events” section at
