With 5700 attendees in 2018, the Groom Expo is the world’s largest dog grooming show. If there’s one grooming show to attend this year, it’s this one. Many groomers around the world close up shop to attend—so what’s the big deal with this show?
Those just starting their career in dog grooming are welcomed just as warmly as the seasoned veterans. With several daily scheduled tours for first-time attendees, “Newbie” tours are the catalyst for many professional friendships!
They also host the Groom of Thrones Ball – a wonderful night of fun and festivities highlighted by the awards given to Groom Olympics’ tournament competitors. They also take this time to recognize outstanding groomers who are transforming the industry.
