Dog Lovers Show Brisbane and Upcoming Events in 2017
Last weekend on November 5 & 6, it was Brisbane’s turn to host the hugely popular Dog Lovers Show that has been extremely successful in Melbourne and Sydney in previous years. It attracted over 11,000 visitors and 150+ exhibitors, including plenty of local Brisbane brands such as ours- Indie Boho Designer Pet Beds! People flocked in to see Dr Chris Brown and Dr Katrina Warren on the Kong Celebrity Vet stage and the hundreds of breeds on show (including the Irish Wolf Hounds that were across from our stand). There were plenty of free samples on offer and things to see such as the Insta famous pups on the Instapooch stage including @kingkingsley_, @charlienadfrankie_, @augie_the_corgi, daisy_rey_dachsund and @mocha_toychocolatepoodle, just to name a few.
We collaborated with the lovely folk at Soapy Moose to showcase collars, harnesses, leashes and other accessories that matched our beds. Our stand was one of the most colourful ones at the show! With matching designs in pineapples, watermelons, feathers, VW kombis, peacocks, tropical, Mexican skulls…. there was something there for everyone.
Our show highlights were the visits from King Kingsley and Charlie and Frankie and having long-time followers purchase as well as gaining new fans and wholesalers. We launched our brand new Summer designs at the Show- they were so popular! The sheer delight of our customers trying to choose just one design for their home was really heart-warming. We can’t wait to do it all over again at the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne 2018!
Our next events in 2017 will be:
November 24 & 25 – Etsy Markets, Brisbane Showgrounds
December 3 – Paws at the Park, Cleveland Showgrounds
