Trade Show Mania! Where We’ll be in 2023 (Hey, That Rhymes!)

As 2023 continues to take shape, Happy Cat is finding it to be a purrrfect year for the brand. We’re excited about the new locations we have in the works, and all the growth and learning we’re discovering along the way. Happy cat is making some really big paw strides daily and upsetting the Catus Quo! As the world recognizes that felines are the cat’s meow, the industry is changing rapidly and CATering more to the feline parents of the world. Which brings us to the subject of trade shows…

Trade shows are an exciting avenue for Happy Cat Hotel franchising to spread the word – we want the world to know that cats are where it’s at! Trade shows provide a great marketing and outreach opportunity for Happy Cat, presenting a fantastic opportunity for us to stay abreast of the latest developments in the pet care industry – especially feline adoration and guardianship. Here’s where you can find us on the trade show circuit in 2023…

On Oct. 20-22 we’ll be at the Pet Franchise Expo in Orlando, Florida. This expo is presented by “The Pet Marketing Agency” and will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista. Exhibitors will include everything from pet bakeries to GPS tracking systems for pets. Seminars and workshops from industry leaders will be held several times a day for the benefit of conference attendees. This really looks like an exciting expo, and we can’t wait to get there and share the Happy Cat concept with everyone in attendance.

The very next month, we have two expo appearances planned for “The Franchise Expo”. We will be at the Colorado Convention Center in the mile-high city of Denver from Nov. 4-5, then back to Florida again for the Tampa Convention Center from Nov. 11-12. These conventions concentrate on all things franchising. It’s a chance for other franchisors to meet and share their unique concepts with the rest of the franchise world, and to learn all about the cool things other brands are doing. This expo also presents a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs (read: future Happy Cat Hotel owners) who might be interested in learning more about a concept, while asking questions in a face-to-face setting. Presentations during this expo are quite literally all-encompassing. From marketing strategies to legal advice, and everything in between – this expo is the place to gain a wealth of knowledge for potential and current franchisees. The show is also stocked with on-site business advisors, in the event one should desire some input before making a business decision. It can all be done right there at the show. Another unique feature of this show is seminars on making your own small business into a viable and working franchise concept.

Trade shows are a vital part of our strategy to increase the number of our franchise locations – while also increasing the customer base of those franchise locations. Plus, trade shows just happen to be a blast! Happy Cat is expecting to see huge growth in the coming months, and we are paw-sitively thrilled to see what 2023 will bring for our unique concept and all of our rock-star franchisees!
