IndePet’s annual conference, which will take place in Rotorua, New Zealand on 19-23 May 2024, is just one month away, and excitement is building.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Momentum’, with presentations that will give IndePet members the strategies and tools to forge ahead in what is an ever-changing market.

The conference will bring together IndePet shareholders, store teams, suppliers, and key industry partners at Novotel Lakeside Rotorua. Attendees can participate in conference sessions, breakout sessions, the trade exhibition, networking activities, and evening social and cultural experiences.

Todd Clarkson, CEO of IndePet, says that there is a fantastic collection of speakers, workshops, social activities and networking opportunities lined up, and with the backdrop of Rotorua, it’s set to be an unforgettable experience.

“Rotorua feels like a particularly fitting location, known for its fast pace and adventure activities, which I think it reflects a similar ride that our industry has been on the last 12 months,” he says.

“Preparing for the conference each year gives IndePet the chance to consider what the coming year looks like for the group and where our focus should be. Two years ago, we set the foundation for the group and our suppliers to work ‘Stronger Together’, and last year we added a whole suite of new services to help everyone to ‘Level Up’ their business. This year’s conference is all about Momentum – how to build it and how to maintain it in an everchanging industry.

“We have a great three days ahead with a conference program of diverse and informative conference sessions, a trade hall of our key suppliers offering great deals and a fun social program full of great networking opportunities.

“Looking forward to everyone building their own Momentum all the way from Rotorua back home!”
