NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A few slots remain open for manufacturers and distributors to showcase their newest innovations for fall and winter at the Petrend Fall Media & Influencer Showcase. The invitation-only event will be held on Thursday, October 11 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at New York City's Roger Smith Hotel. The annual event, hosted by Petrend Events and leading pet trend and lifestyle expert Charlotte Reed, is a private showcase which offers national media and pet influencers an exclusive glimpse of the newest and most innovative pet products and amenities for fall and winter.
"The last quarter of the year is an especially difficult time for pet owners," Reed said. "Weather and climate changes occur quickly and can contribute to health problems like allergies, arthritis, flea and tick bites and weight management issues. Nervousness, anxiety and fear are common among pets with weather swings and wise pet owners prepare for this and learn the newest products available. Pet parents should also consider pet wardrobes, indoor exercise, holiday pet planning for travel, grooming, and safety. Moreover, pet tech products contribute to pet health and wellness more than ever before."
Petrend Events offers a wide variety of pet product information, demonstrations and background at the exclusive showcase including the following pet product categories:
Apparel (rainwear, winter coats, sweaters and boots)
Allergy and asthma remedies
Pet beds and bedding
Carrier bags and vehicle restraints
CBD bites, tinctures and other products
Cleaners, odor control and vacuums
Dental care products and tools

Health aids, supplements and diagnostic testing kits
Holiday clothing, decorations and gifts

Pet food & treats
Wearable technology, tech toys and other gadgets
The future of pet technology will be a special focus at the event. An entire room at the showcase will feature the latest pet tech products and developments that can improve health and contribute to the overall quality of life and well-being for pets.
Petrendologist Charlotte Reed will be on-site at the showcase to provide seasonal care commentary and tips for dogs and cats.
