Super-stoked for SuperZoo!

We have finally made it to Las Vegas for the SuperZoo (www.superzoo.org) event at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. I felt so excited to get my Press Pass today, and felt even more excited asΒ I entered the press room for the first time. As I walked in I told myself, “Wow, this is really happening!”

For members of the media. That's me! :-)

This is where I will be interviewing company reps. How exciting!

After getting familiar with the press room, and looking over the media kits from several brand names, I decided to get a rare look at the trade show and grooming competition areas while they were still being set up. I didn’t know I wasn’t allowed to do that, and nobody stopped me either. I had a shirt and tie on, baby, nobody was going to get in my way!

I also spent some time familiarizing myself with the educational seminars being conducted on the 3rd floor. The event seems to be very well organized, and they have plenty of signs and staff members set up everywhere to help attendees find whatever they are looking for. After scoping out the different lectures taking place, I decided to sit in on one ofΒ Lynn Switanowski’s Social Media Boot Camp lessons.

Tuesday is going to be another amazing day, as the SuperZoo trade show and grooming competitions begin! I will cover as much as I can, and share my experiences with you here on my blog.Β I feel so blessed to have such an amazing opportunity here at SuperZoo, but even more blessed to be able to have my family here with me.
